How ’bout them Giants?!

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???

    I LOVE THE PIG! and the other ones! but mostly the pig. aww, your decorating skills are marvellous. And so funny that you made those for a football party 🙂 looking at these makes me all happy.

  2. 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!

  4. Jess - The Domestic Vegan says

    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?

  5. Ruby Red Vegan says

    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. 🙂

    Hello I just entered before I have to leave to the airport, it’s been very nice to meet you, if you want here is the site I told you about where I type some stuff and make good money (I work from home): here it is

  7. Vegyogini says

    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. 🙂

  8. Rural Vegan says

    The pig! OMG, the pig is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! When are you going to open a bakery?

    PS – I love that pig!

  9. Holler says

    that is just so funny, I would have loved to seen their faces!
    Those are some really cute cookies, I especially like the panda!

  10. Romina says

    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.

  11. 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!

  12. DJ says

    Awww, cute! Those cookies are just lovely, I wish when I decorated cookies they were as sweet, or even easily identifiable, as yours!

  13. Jackie says

    I suppose you guys get as much excitement out of the Superbowl as we do the World Rugby Cup.

    What wonderful cookies. It must have been hard to eat them and spoil the wonderful decorating 🙂

  14. Lizzy says

    (hey, that’s what college is all about, right?)
    That brought a quote from Southpark to my mind “There’s a place for drugs called college!” =p

    The cookies look so cute. I love the panda, the pig and the turtle, aww!
    especially the pink bunny cookie– it might challenge their manliness, after all!– That made me laugh out loud =p

  15. Astra Libris says

    Your cookies are sooooo adorable!! I love theme… and such a wonderful story to go along with it! I’m sure your boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed the bunny cookie… 🙂

  16. russ says

    How cute are your cookies! They must’ve taken ages to decorate!! Almost too good to bite into, but I bet they were devoured pretty quickly.
    Good job!

  17. Liz² says

    those are so adorable! you’ve got some serious skill! I’m always intimidated by an array of icing colours that’s bigger than, like, 2 shades, so I’m in pure awe of your ability to make a rainbow of cute delicious cookies!

  18. mustardseed says

    Aaw…they’re so cute!! Wish I had time to cook up nice stuff too! Too bad I’m just a 14 year old, very very busy student.

    Oh and you’re not too skinny, in fact I think you’re very pretty(:

  19. mustardseed says

    Sorry about the squash…I miss my orange veggies but I’m banned from them by my mom for having yellowish orange skin.

    I understand how it’s like being so busy…

  20. Melissa says

    Those look yummy and adorable! You should seriously consider opening an Etsy store or something. I’d be a good customer.

  21. eatme_delicious says

    What incredibly adorable cookies!! I love the animals where you used several cookies/cookie pieces like the bunny and dog.

  22. Lizzy Rodriguez says

    Way cute cookies! Love it! Did you use a regular sugar cookie recipe? I don’t know if you posted the directions and I just couldn’t find it or something.
