Bowl me over

My sister and nephew are coming for a visit tomorrow! :) My nephew is 2...here he is...
....go ahead. Awwwww!

His great love....bowling! Santa even brought him a bowling ball for Christmas. So, I made some bowling cookies for him.

I used a vintage-y cutter that I found on eBay. It was fun to finally use it, although it is one of those cutters that is closed on the top. You know what I mean? It wouldn't cut all the way through the dough...it wasn't deep enough, so I had to go around the shape with a paring knife.

Other than the cookie cutter issue, these are really easy cookies to make. I just outlined and filled the shapes with black/white icing and added the pin stripes using a #4 tip and the finger holes with a #3. Easy Peasy!

I hope he likes them!!!

    I use a gel food coloring made by AmreiColor...Super Black. It doesn't take much and it doesn't taste funny. I know some others to taste a little strange b/c you have to use so much!

  16. Do you ever have a problem with the black running with the white making the white look purple-ish? Maybe it isn't much of a problem with royal icing but I know it is with buttercream. I'm a cake decorator. Someday, perhaps when the kids are older (they're 3.5yo & 6mo), I would love to decorate cookies like yours. I've already got a good supply of cutters. Love your site. Thanks!
