How ’bout them Giants?!

Pin It!

My friends will take advantage of ANY excuse to have a party (hey, that’s what college is all about, right?). Superbowl Sunday, therefore, was no exception, especially since many of my friends play football. Once again, it was time for me to bake!

Wanting to bring something different from my contribution to the last football party, but still wishing to utilize my decorating skills, I decided to make sugar cookies.

The only problem was that I didn’t feel like decorating football-themed cookies because I’d just decorated football-themed cupcakes a few weeks ago.

“Doggone it,” I said. “They’re my cookies, and I’ll make what I want to!” So I came up with a new theme– Anti-football cookies: Flowers, hearts, stars, smiley faces, cute and cuddly animals… “anything goes” as long as it had nothing to do with football.

Initially, some of the boys were hesitant to eat the cutesy cookies, especially the pink bunny cookie– it might challenge their manliness, after all!– but I guess their hunger got the better of their apprehension, because I went home with an empty plate!

P.S. Guess who made her boyfriend eat the pink bunny cookie 😉

What will become of us???

    OMG! Your cookies are sooooooooooooo dayum cute! LOVE ‘EM! Great job! 😀

  3. Ashasarala says:

    Incredibly adorable! How did you get the pig and the smiley face so smoothe? Did you use fondant?

    I have to say, you really are awesome at decorating cookies and cupcakes. You should look into it as a side business. I’m sure you could make money selling those to bakeries!

    And, unfortunately, I DO have a desk job. It funds my dreams, so for now I will deal with it. I look forward to the future, however, when I never have to step foot in an office building again!

    Those are too cute and I love the anti-football theme. I would’ve loved to see all those boyz eating them, haha! My faves are definitely the pig and the turtle. What amazing skills!

    Those are so darn cute! Your frosting looks awesome–I’ve never been able to find a thick frosting that “sticks” like that. The few times I’ve made sugar cookies as an “adult,” my frosting always runs all over the place… What recipe do you use?

  7. The Veganette says:

    SO cute!

  8. jd says:

    …*jaw dropping*

    I’m in awe. Seriously, these look FANTASTIC!

    1. What perfectly shaped cookies!

    2. I bet those big football players especially appreciated how large some of those cookies are!

    3. Your decorating skills on this little project are even better than I remember them! Wow! I love that the cookies have nothing to do with football (I have no interest in football), and you’re right, you should be able to make cutesy cookies if you feel like it! The turtle and the ducky are my favorites. I love how the ducky’s lips pooch out. 🙂

    You’re such an amazing decorator! I wish I had gotten to partake in those cookies. They look spectacular and I’m having difficulty choosing a favorite. 🙂

    Whenever my friends have a party, I get excited because I get to bake too!! It’s so much fun showing people how awesome vegan sweets can be.

    Your cookies look SO cute and delicious. You are so talented! You should be proud. I wish I had an ounce of your talent. And I agree with everyone, the pig is soooo cute!! I wonder if it’s considered vegan to eat animal cookies… 😉 Hehe.

  18. Vicki's Vegan Vice says:

    those are, without a doubt, the cutest cookies i have ever seen!!!!

  19. Bianca says:

    Brillant! That makes me want to have a super bowl party right now. I mean, it’s a little late. But…I was going to have one and make beer-battered vegan hot wings, but your cookies are sooo much cuter!
