I made these cookies for Eli who turned 4 and had a bowling party.
I made the balls swirled just like the real ones at the bowling alley. They ended up looking totally 3D which was awesome!
Piping a perfect circle for the ball turned out to be harder than I thought. Especially since only half of the circle matched up with the outside of the cookie. After doing a few (and making many fixes) I decided to trace a circle cutter onto the cookie with a food color marker. It worked FABULOUSLY and saved me so much time and aggravation!
I filled in the ball as thinnly as I could with blue icing, then added the white to make the swirl.
Then I used a toothpick to “mix” the white into the blue and make the swirly effect,
For the red lines I used a thicker tip so that I could make wide flat lines on the pins.
I just love the way they turned out!
