I got a cookie order for someone running in the Chicago marathon this weekend, does anyone have any good ideas? I was thinking of a round or square cookie with a tennis shoe on it and a Good Luck one.

Any other ideas??

Just a quick thought, might not be what you're wanting, but I've seen a running shoe with wings, if you can't get cutter, print off pic and make stencil,use on square or round cookie.
Or,if there is a simple logo for that particular marathon, you could put on a round or square cookie.

I pulled up the logo and it looks a little tricky unless you have the machine to do edible icing. Shiney's idea of a running shoes is perfect! Do you know their number? You could do a cookie that looks like the piece of paper they wear as they run. How about a water bottle cookie? A bandaid cookie? (My husband gets plenty of blisters when he does this.) I like your idea of the 'Good Luck' cookie.

Here are some cookies I did for our cross country team:

My daughter just ran the Portland marathon this past Sunday!

Yankeegal, CUTE cookies! icon_biggrin.gif

KellJ, if you don't have cutter, and not comfortable with freehand decor, cut out your image, trace with edible marker on naked cookie, then outline with stiff RI or TG, let it set, then fill in around with different colors. That's what I had to do with my longhorns.

Thanks everyone for all your ideas!!

Yankeegal, I was on your website last night looking for ideas as I often do. I LOVE your work!!

This is a very last minute order so I don't have time to run to my supply store to get the cutters I need. Just when you think you have every cutter in the world.....So I will be free handing on this bouquet.

Shiney, love the Texas/OU cookies! But have to say GO OU!!!!!!!!!!

KellJ - I don't know how you do your freehanding, but here is something that might (or might not) help. I trace my designs on to template plastic, found in the quilting section of Joanne's. It is sturdy (and I don't even use the heavier of the two options), washes and stores well for later use. Just thought I'd pass that on in case you could use the info.
