I am so excited that these cookies finally had a reason to happen!
My hubby is a die-hard Giants fan and always has been. Naturally I had the choice to either get on board, or be forever miserable and bored and angry about the TV takeovers. Okay, so I still get that way, but only after so many days in a row.
I really enjoy going to the games, and I have gained quite the wardrobe of black and orange over the last couple years.
These cookies were super fun to make because I was given free range to make whatever I wanted. They are for my coworker’s dinner group, who were having a Giants baseball themed get-together.
I have all the necessary parts.
Balls & Bats…
Some of our boys…
Logos… I made these by printing and cutting out a logo, poking holes in the icing with a toothpick, then connecting the dots.
A couple “Fear the Beard” silhouettes… I made these by just eyeballing it.
… and a couple Pandas! Love these guys.
I’m sure I will be doing these again soon. I have so many more shapes I thought of after I had already finished baking.
Black & Orange!!!

You are very talented – the “eye balled” fear the beard cookies turned out great!
aww thank you! I don’t have the fancy projector or anything so I had to make do however I could!
Yet again, you come up with a brilliant idea that I’m totally stealing!! I usually just trace cutouts onto my cookie with edible markers. Unfortunately, the final image is “fatter” and messier than I’d like since I have to cover the marker. Your toothpick technique sounds 1000 times better! I’m gonna give it a try this week! Thanks Carrie! Oh and your eyeballing of the “Fear the Beard” silhouettes is fantastic…great job!
My problem is my icing doesn’t get hard enough to draw on like RI does, so I had to come up with another way!
Do you use buttercream?
The outlining and details are buttercream. The icing is similar to glaze.
Oohh yummy! I want to order some from you please :))))
Great cookies. Love the pandas! The logos are great and a crafty little technique and your bearded ones…good eyeballing!
