Custom Cookie Cutters

Are your dogs like mine? Faces so cute you just want to eat them up! Now we all can — by making our dog’s face into a custom-designed cookie.

Ivan Gersonskiy came up with this brilliant idea. “I make a custom design based on the photo of a dog,
cat or any other pet (like lemur, parrot, squirrel, etc.) and then we 3D print it,” Ivan explains. “All cutters are made of food-safe, biodegradable plastic.”

Just send a photo of your dog (or any other pet) and it will become a cookie cutter — and a wagalicious gift for you or any pet lover. “The first pet portrait cutter I made was a cookie cutter of my own dog,” Ivan says. “It turned out really great, and it was such fun to make these cookies.”

One of Ivan’s recent orders was a portrait of a dog for his 20th birthday. “They are making a family celebration,” says Ivan, “and I’m happy to participate just a little bit in such an amazing event. Each pet portrait I make is special to me; I’m trying to catch the personal features and character of each. I really enjoy my work. What can be more positive than happy cat or dog faces?” Cookie cutters retail for $27. See Bakers Street Cutters at etsy.com/shop/bakersstreetcutters.
