The South is football country and November is when the season heats up. Football is almost a religion here and there are plenty of leagues for little ones to get their first taste of the sport. I got a call to do a cake for a the 5 & 6 year old Pee-Wee football state champions. In addition to the cake, I got to do some football shaped decorated sugar cookies as well. Cakes are fun, but I really love making cookies. I’ve honed my skill working in a local bakery where I baked approximately 2,500 sugar cookies during the week of Valentine’s Day. You’d think I’d be sick of them, but between you and me, I could go a good long while without seeing another heart-shaped cookie, but other shapes get my creative juices flowing.
Anyway, I did a large sheet cake decorated as a football field and then 2 dozen football cookies. Nothing ground breaking but I did pull out my airbrush and painted the helmet gold.
I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving next week and a break in orders for a couple of days. I may actually make some turkey cookies for my little turkeys. If I do, I’ll be sure to post the pictures. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
