Sugar Cookie Madness


Well, March Madness might be over but I just now got into basketball – sugar cookie basketball.  Honestly, I’m surprised I even know about March Madness since I am not a basketball fan.  In fact, when I was in high school my father and mother would drag me to the college basketball games and I would actually take my homework and do it at the game.

Rather than leave the icing smooth, I decided to add some texture to it to make it look more like a basketball – so I added dots of frosting.  In case any of you are wondering, these cookies are large and it took me 7 minutes to add the dots.  Was it worth the time?

The above lone sugar cookie basketball was an extra one I made for this cookie bouquet:

For some reason the stick came out of the cookie.  I can’t decide if it was because the cookie wasn’t cooked enough or if the stick wasn’t deep enough in the dough.  Perhaps it was a combination of the two.  All I know is that I am glad that I always make an extra sugar cookie on a stick when I’m doing a bouquet.  This one came off the stick as I was assembling the bouquet and so I was quite nervous as I continued putting the bouquet together knowing that I didn’t have that extra sugar cookie basketball.    And don’t worry, the lone sugar cookie will not go to waste.  Well, that’s not entirely true – it will go to waist — my waist!



Cute! I love the little “bumps” on the balls 🙂 Nice finishing touch!

Thank you. I think they were definitely worth the extra time.
