These were the hardest cookies I have made so far.
And they didn’t go exactly as I had planned.
The request was for Yankees Pinstriped Jerseys, with the birthday boy’s last name across the back. He was turning 30, so that is the number for the jersey.
I have to say – I am not a Yankees fan. I had to google images to make sure I got the design right. The pinstripes go up the sleeves and then down the back. And where they meet, there is no line. That made these especially challenging. Here is how I did the pinstripes:
I had originally planned on doing the pinstripes in food color marker, but I was unable to find a dark blue marker. The one I had was a sky blue and that is not acceptable for Yankees!
After I let the stripes dry, I piped on the name and number 30.
Here they are all ready to go! They were stacked in a white metal bucket for display.
These took a loooong time and my hand was killing me, but I pushed through and made these cookies happen!
