I’m very excited to share these cookies. They went off to the birthday boy this morning for his 8th birthday party tomorrow so I can finally share what is, to date, my favourite set. I’ve known Nick since he was just under 2 years old, I can’t believe he’s 8 already!! It made me very happy to be able to do this for him and his friends and I really hope they like them.
I won’t lie, when multiple colours are involved, it’s a little bit more labour intensive, but it makes for such a fun finished product. All in all, this set took a total of 6 hours to make, 2 of which were just mixing the colours and prepping the icing. But I wanted it to be fun and bright so it was well worth it. I also decided to add texture with sanding sugar and sprinkles – sugar and sprinkles always make things better 🙂
I was inspired by Sweet Sugar Belle’s stadium cookies and decided to try my own variation. Confession: I wanted to add numbers on the yard lines (that’s what they’re called right??) but I wasn’t sure which numbers to put and by the time I’d Googled the icing was too dry. Next time I’ll plan ahead!
Happy birthday big guy! Hope you have a great party 🙂
