hello! so i need some help desperately, pleeeeaase. i have an order for soccer ball cookies that i am making for my hubbys co-worker. i have found some on here but i am curious if anyone has any helpful hints on the pattern or making them. first time making soccer ball cookies. any advice or helpful hints is appreciated!!! thank you so much in advance!!
I'm doing some this week and I'll use my edible printer..
Didn't want to put too much "effort" on them since I'm doing only 24 sport ball (soccer, basketball ans baseball. So, 8 of each)
When I did them I outlined the pattern with black and then filled in. I found it easiest to size it so I had 1 black 5 sided right in the middle then a circle I'd white 6 sided then 1 more circle with them "falling off" the edge of the cookie. This seemed to give the round look. This probably makes no sense. The picture is in my gallery. Good luck!
Thank you both very much for replying!! have a great day!!!
I tried soccer balls once. They looked like steering wheels to me!!! HA! There are some really cool ones on here though.
hehe steering wheels huh? hehe ill post a pic of mine later and we will see what mine look like. maybe a bit scary! hehe
Here is a great suggestion. Autumn Carpenter of Country Kitchens has a cutter with an impression mat for all types of balls, soccer, golf, basketball and football. Make cookies, cut with cutter, bake. Roll out fondant, texture, place on cookie and follow the lines to outline! Easy!!! They are really cute. Hope this helps.
Well...isn't that fabulous! Autumn Carpenter of Country Kitchens saves the day!!!! No more steering wheel soccer balls for me!
hehehehhe - Cool!
thats awesome nesweetcake!!! i will order them for sure but just won't get them in time for this weekend. hehehe! at least we have the info. thanks so much!!! :-p
Glad to Help! I did the football ones for my sons football team and even those big ole' boys were impressed!
I was just about to reply with the suggestion of the texture cookie sets from CK! They look so neat! They have lots of different ones, too, for weddings, baby showers, etc etc. There's also a way to use them on buttercream, which is cool because a lot of people in my family love sugar cookies with buttercream but I rarely make them that way since its harder to decorate a cookie with BC! (IMO)
well i made my soccer cookies and of all things i forgot to take pics! uggghhh..... hehe. hectic day and completely forgot. they came out ok tho for my first time making them. alot more work than i anticipated. a joy to make tho. thanks for everyone who responded. Have an awesome day!!!
