It’s Super Bowl Sunday and the excitement is in the air! New Yorkers take the super bowl very seriously, especially when the New York Giants grace the field. I needed to do my part and so I made these Giants cookies (sorry Patriot fans, I’m a New Yawker).
Lucky for me, the Giants logo is fairly simple to replicate. When making these cookies I decided that I needed a projector. That way I could ice each cookie and then pipe the logo directly on each cookie. But projectors are so big, I really have to hold myself back. My apartment is being taken over by my baking obsession.
To make these cookies I printed out the logo to the perfect size on regular printer paper. Then I placed the printout under a piece of parchment paper and piped the design onto the parchment. I started with the red outline and came back with the blue to fill it in. I let the letters dry for a few hours, until they released from the parchment. Working one cookie at a time, I piped white icing on and then carefully placed the logo on top. Then I gently pressed down on the lettering to make sure it was in place. Then I allowed the cookies to dry overnight before handling them.
These cookies can work for Giants fans or Patriots fans. It’s a classic American Football. Super simple in design, all it took was a nice rich chocolate brown royal icing to make the football shape. I let that dry for about 20 minutes before detailing the football with pure white icing. Laces out!
I made lots of footballs, I wonder how many actual footballs they use during the superbowl. The third cookie I made is my favorite. I was so happy when I found this cookie cutter in my box of 100 cookie cutters by Wilton.
These football helmet cookies turned out super cute. I piped the logo onto parchment paper and let it dry for a few hours so that I could just pop it onto the blue icing as soon as it was applied. I was nervous to pipe the logo directly onto the helmets, I didn’t trust myself to do a good job.
I love how these cookies look all lined up. I think I made enough helmets for the whole team! They were so cute that I just kept making more and more. Here is the whole collection:
