I’ve mentioned recently that two of my boys play football. One of them (Dominic, 10 years) is done for the season, so the coaches hosted an end of season party for the team. I decided to make football jersey shaped cookies, and to go a bit further, thought I would finally try my hand at decorating with Royal Icing.
My other football son (T.J., 12 years) is still playing. In fact, as I type this (which won’t be when this posts by the way) he is at practice. See T.J.’s team won their playoff game over the weekend, giving them the title of Division Champs! Go Bulldogs! WOOT! The “Super Bowl” game will be played this weekend and we can’t wait! Totally psyched!
Since I was making cookies for Dominic’s team, I doubled up the batch and made them for T.J.’s team too. It worked out great, I handed them out right after they won the Division Champ title, so they were very pumped and these were a nice treat to go home with.
I decorated Dominic’s with a few different colors, while T.J. wanted his to be white to match their actual jerseys. I also made some footballs and helmets for the coaches and flags for the team moms.
Then it was time to pipe on the numbers etc. This was my first time, so I was pretty happy with the results, even if they weren’t perfect.
I can see a LOT of cookies in my future. This is a dangerous mix of cooking (this blog) and crafting (my craft blog), so I am certain these will not be the last decorated cookie to cross these pages. :) I’m already totally excited about making some Thanksgiving cookies!
To end this post, I want to celebrate my two youngest boys. Dominic and T. J., I’m so proud of you boys. You are dedicated sport nuts and great team mates. Good sports and all around rockin’ kids. I love you both. :)
