When I realized Father's Day was a week away I asked my husband to pick out some cutters so I could make some cookies for his dad.
He went through my cutters and came out with the baseball mit & hat so I went with the Yankee's colors and pulled out a few of my new alphabet set to spell out D A D. I also used the O from that set to make the baseball instead of digging out my circle cutters. A few years ago when my inlaws were here for a visit we took them to a Dodgers game. We had some of the best seats in the house compliments of a friend of ours. It would have been great if they were playing the Yankee's but they weren't...I think my father in law enjoyed it
even if he didn't want to pay $5 for a beer.
I've learned in order to keep dark colors from bleeding you need to ensure they have enough air to dry quickly. I normally set the cookie sheet with decorated cookies on top of my stove where the pilot light creates a little warmth. This seems to be my best solution. I know some put fans on them but I'm afraid to do that, afraid of dust it may blow into my cookies.
The mit is brown royal icing.. I would love to try
Sugarbelle's chocolate royal icing for this cookie next time
Baseball made with an "O" cookie cutter
instead of a circle cutter
Happy Father's Day !
