Some Scooby Snacks

Marcie asked me months ago to make some cookies of her son's favorite character.  Instead of the actual dog, I thought the Mystery Machine would be fun.  I ended up doing both!  I did not have a cutter so I just used pictures I printed and cut out.  It's so fun to see the process from start to finish. I hope you enjoy it too.
Can you see it?  
Since when did I become a dough carver?
I even had shavings.  

Talk about intimidation.  All week I was feeling the weight of these cookies.  Once I finally sat down to start them (after looking at lots of inspiration), I felt better.  

Let's get it started.
Was I really going to turn these things
into something?
I outlined in black.
This takes while to dry so it was
a process of many steps.
Lots of funny looking vans.
Obviously, the birthday boy is "Greg"
I felt good about this so I set out to
do that crazy dog.
It kinda looked like a rabbit.
I didn't take a pic of the outline because
it was such a mess of scraping and redoing!!!
Just not pretty.
This guy took awhile, but I was
happy with the result.
This cookie was quite large.
I added some sparkle for the assortment.
Happy 5th Birthday, Greg!
Thank you, Marcie.
It was so great to meet you!!!


  1. AWESOME! You did an amazing job of cutting those out! I'm crazy impressed!

  2. They were AMAZING and a huge hit! Dawn, I can't thank you enough for putting so much time and effort into these. Greg loved them (as did all the kids at the party)! You have an incredible gift for designing these yummy cookies!

    Great to finally meet you, too, and learn that our kids are almost the same ages :)

  3. Thanks! It was a lot of fun!

  4. These are super aweesome!!! And piped to perfection!!

  5. Love it. You did a great job!!

  6. Amazing- just amazing! Fantastic job!

  7. The Mystery Machine is awesome and must have taken you a long time!
    I did some Scoobys a while back and they are fun to make, but the longer I looked at him the less he looked like Scooby Doo!

  8. Lovely! It gives me encouragement for my own daughter's birthday party next month. I was debating about whether or not to even attempt this, but your step by step makes it much more do-able.
