Zach (who I made these cookies for last year) is now 7!
He wanted a Giants themed party, so I went to town with my baseball cutters.
I made the traditional baseballs and bats, as well as baseball hats for the first time.
Per tradition, I also made Z’s and 7’s in matching colors. Good thing it’s also Halloween season, I found these black and orange sprinkles that went perfectly with the Giants colors!
The jersey cookie was made especially for Zach. As soon as I brought the cookies over, he wanted to eat it immediately! **Zach actually told me later that I spelled the last name wrong. Oops!**
I also made these awesome SF Giants colored bridges, since the “bridge” is such a huge part of San Francisco, whether it’s the Bay Bridge or the Golden Gate, or any of the others.
See that SF symbol up there? I have made them before, but this time I decided to freehand it.
I started with a basic thin line…
Then shaped around it until I had the right angles and edges!
Here are all of the cookies together, ready for the party!

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!!!
