Which cookie cutter is best to make a cheerleader, the gingerbread girl or the teddy bear? I am using the teddy bear for the football player. If anyone has a suggestion on how to easily decorate the cookies, I would appreciate any help. This is my first try at decorating character cookies. Thanks for your assistance.

I would use the gingerbread girl cutter, it has the little skirt on it. Good luck!

Have you searched online for a cheerleader? I think I have seen one, but don't remember where. Might be worth a try, depending on your deadline.

Cookies By Design uses the teddy bear for both the football player and the cheerleader.

Off The Beaten Path has a cheerleader cookie cutter (looks like sh is jumping in the air and holding pom poms).

Thanks for all of your suggestions. I ordered the bear and the gingerbread boy and girl.

I'll check with Off the Beaten Path for the jumping cheerleader.

I have the jumping cheerleader cutter and believe it's more work than it's worth. The arms are so narrow, that the weight of the pom poms break off the arms. Even with a thick cookie. This can happen at any point, either when your trying to release the dough from the cutter, transferring to a cooling rack, decorating, bagging or after transporting it. I even made extra cookies to be safe. It was so fustrating.
Afterwards, I bought a teddy bear and had no problem.
