Sports Ball Cookies
Use these step by step instructions to make easy sports ball cookies for a game of tic tac toe or even cupcake toppers. Fun for Father’s Day!
If you still need a last minute idea for Father’s Day, make him these sports ball cookies.
So, are you making your dad something SPECIAL?
What sport is he into? Volleyball? Basketball? Soccer? Tennis? Baseball? Or ALL of them?
Most dads LOVE sports and I am sure they would ENJOY munching on these.
Actually, why not surprise him with these sports cookies while he reads the newspaper?
It seems like my Dad has the time of his life reading newspapers.
I, on the other hand, CAN’T even get past the first page… lol.
While taking pictures of these cookies, I thought: Why not use these cookies to play a GAME of tic-tic-toe. Won’t that be COOL?
My dad is back in Canada *sighs* or else I would have PLAYED this with him.
My hubby and I played a game instead.
Well, more like 10 or 20 games actually… lol.
And he was on a ROLL…Winning one game after another and another and another!
By the way, you can also use these cookies as CUPCAKE toppers!
To make these sports ball cookies, you will need the following INGREDIENTS/SUPPLIES:
Cream filled cookies (such as Oreos or Newman O’s )
White marshmallow fondant
Blue marshmallow fondant
Green marshmallow fondant
Yellow marshmallow fondant
Royal icing or corn syrup
Black edible marker
Red edible marker
Toothpicks or lollipop sticks
Chocolate buttercream icing
Vegan chocolate cupcakes
These are the INSTRUCTIONS:
Cut out fondant circles which are about the size of your cookies.
Use different colors of fondant for different types of sports balls.
For example: use orange colored fondant for a basketball.
Brush some royal icing or jam or corn syrup (whatever you prefer) on your cookie.
Place the round fondant piece on this cookie and press until it holds in place.
Let the cookies dry for about an hour before proceeding to the next step since I think markers work better on fondant when it’s slightly dry.
Use a black edible marker and draw out the details on your cookie.
And you are done making a basketball cookie.
To make baseball cookies, use white fondant as a base and red edible marker to draw details.
For volleyballs, use light blue fondant as a base and black edible marker to draw details.
For soccer balls, use white fondant as a base and black edible marker to draw details.
For a tennis ball, use green fondant as a base and and rolled yellow fondant for the details.
To transform these cookies into cupcake toppers, stick toothpicks to the back of the cookies with melted chocolate.
When your chocolate sets, pipe chocolate buttercream on your cupcakes and push these toppers in.
Well, that’s all for today.
