Okay - so this isn't really a Care Bear but isn't he handsome? I actually "stole" this design from someone in the blogosphere (can't remember whom but if you know, please share so that I can properly credit). I use "stole" loosely because while her pretty cookies were slicky sweet like candy, my bear doesn't get that candy look . Instead of the cotton candy pink of the original picture, I used green royal icing left over from my oh so adorable frogs. I will definitely make this bear again with my own little touch. I'm also thinking he would make a great chocolate shortbread cookie.
I was making frogs and dinosaurs (what? frogs and the brontosaurus were so BFFs back in the day) for a special little boy. I think the frogs are adorable and the dinos reminded me of animal crackers. No? Come on! I know I’m not the only one who used to have my animal crackers stand and walk before I ate them. Being as these dinos are 3 inches, I would have been able to play a lot longer as I ate.
