When you make so many cookies, some are sure to NOT turn out as well as you'd like. I guess. Or so I keep telling myself. :) I almost didn't post this one, but heck, who hasn't had a bad cookie day, right? And I learned a couple of lessons on this one, which made it worth doing.
One of the main things I would do differently next time is to have a thicker consistency of royal icing. I gave him a flooded look, and I think if it had been thicker, I could have used a paintbrush to pull "fur" from him, and he would've looked alot better. I think flooding an animal cookie is only good for a short haired animal. Or at least that's what I think now! :)
