Hi there! Now that my hubby has received his cookies in the mail, I can tell you about these. :) Normally I'm decorating cookies to give away for one reason or another, and the ones that I mess up are the ones that my husband gets to eat. I am not sure I've ever decorated cookies JUST FOR HIM.
He's away at school right now and I was missing him, so I had a brilliant idea to make him some cookies. He is from North Carolina and loves the UNC Tarheels.
I found a football set of cookie cutters that I bought in a dollar section, so I was going to make him some helmets with the Tarheels logo on them. As I took the burnt helmets out of the oven, I realized that he doesn't really watch them play football- basketball is his sport of choice. So I used the jersey cookie cutter and made these basketball tank tops. That's what they are. Really. :)
I used this tutorial to make the logo. I found a logo online, pulled it into Photoshop, and enlarged it. I printed a sheet of them. I taped the sheet to the counter, and taped wax paper on top of that. Then I used royal icing to pipe the UNC logo. The thicker the better. Then I let it dry. For 48 hours or so. At least. :)
glaze icing to pipe the tank tops on the jersey cookies. Then I immediately dropped the logo into the wet icing and pressed lightly. (Here's where I broke one more.)
