We were supposed to decorate these cookies with a "September" theme. And while most of the American population starts thinking about football come September, I think of the same thing I think of for 3/4 of the year: softball. September is the beginning of the last season of the year - that last 8 weeks before the cold kicks in and I trade in the glove and ball for, well, different kind of gloves and balls (ski gloves and dodgeballs, but not at the same time!) I currently play on 3 teams, and because of the timing of when I got to bake, these cookies are dedicated to my Sunday night team, the Coconut Banger's Ball Club:
Super cute, right!
So I made cinnamon sugar cookies, and topped them with vanilla icing. We weren't required to make royal icing from scratch, so the first round of cookies I used a store bought cookie decorating icing. That's what I used on the stars. But I wanted to try the royal icing, too, so I whipped up a batch using meringue powder and used it to make the softballs. I have no idea if it turned out the way it was supposed to... but the icing dried well enough so I assume I got it right. I used a decorating writing icing tube thing for the red, blue, and yellow writing/outlines.
Cute, indeed! Well done on the challenge!ReplyDelete
Cute! Very nicely done :)ReplyDelete
They look fantastic, so I would say you probably got the royal icing right! Have a great last-softball-season of the year! :)ReplyDelete
3 teams?! You must really enjoy it! For me, walking down to the store 2 minutes away for fresh croissants is active enough, lol! Shocking really ;)ReplyDelete
Your cookies came out really great, thanks for taking part of the September challenge :)
Thanks everyone! Loved the challenge last month :-)ReplyDelete
