Score wood grain design into dough using end of spatula. Cut 2 wheels using circle cutter; cut 1/4 in. wide strips of dough and position on wheels for spokes and rims. Bake all and cool. Thin brown icing color with a small amount of vanilla extract and paint into wood grain designs. Let cookies dry at least 24 hours on a flat surface. Tint royal icing to match wheelbarrow color and assemble using tip 16: Attach wheels, supports and handles, let dry. Attach side panels to front and back panels. Let dry completely.

Attach daisies on and around lamb, securing with dots of icing. Add tip 352 leaves.
