Football Cookies and More
Yes, it’s that time of year where the requests start rolling in for custom football cookies and desserts with your favorite teams. Is it just me or is there a song that becomes so familiar around this time of year? You know the music I am talking about. Whether it is the College Game Day intro or the NFL theme song you can hear it playing in your head. It’s that song you will hear over and over till January. Or do you have an obnoxious co-worker that likes to call you in the morning playing their team’s fight song or am I the only this happens too? Not only that but the trash talking begins. Even if you have no interest in sports, I guarantee you someone in your home, office, or your next neighbors are passionate about football. I mean, even my roommate, The Shaky Baker, for CookieCon, is not so sure she can room with a USC Football fan.
Who is your favorite team? If you could have football cookies made for you, who would you choose? College or Professional? We are quite the divided household. Jude and I love USC; the husband loves Georgia when it comes to college teams. My grandfather graduated from USC and I grew up going to the games. Now I continue on that heritage with my son which has been so much fun.
Professional football on the other hand is different. My son is a die hard Seahawks fan, and my husband and I are Cardinals fans. It’s going to be a sad year for us but sometimes rebuilding has to happen. While my team is rebuilding I can keep myself busy by creating football cookies, cakes, mini cakes and cupcakes.
I thought I would share with you some of our cakes and cupcakes we created last season.
The cake below was a ton of fun because the mom wanted to be a part of creating the cake for her son’s birthday. I began by putting her to work on the basics: star pipping. It’s a great idea. Not only can you learn cake decorating basics but you get to be apart of creating your child’s cake. I think she did a great job!
I figured I would end my blog post with the football cookies that we ended the season with last year. A game quite painful to my blogging friend Lynne, over at 365 Days of Baking. But here is to a new year. We hope you have a fun season cheering your team on.
