Baseball Logo Cookies

I'm not going to lie these were not easy at all, but I will do it again and I think next time they will turn out better, I made these for an dinner my sons baseball team had this past week.
Sugar Cookies from i am baker
Frosting Recipe from i am baker
I googled my sons school name and printed this logo and transferred onto photo paper.


I did not have a round cookie cutter so I used a biscuit cutter

Outlining the cookies

Flooding with frosting

After they dried I used a food writer to outline stencil

This is the final product after outlining with black frosting and flooding with red frosting, does it look like the logo on the right?


 Everyone loved the cookies and are asking me to make them again, maybe when I recover and forget how hard they were to decorate...

Old Cook Books


I love buying Old Cook Books at the Thrifts store and garage sales, I love looking at old recipes and specially the ones that have been hand written and the notes added, I always wonder how many meals were actually cooked? by the looks of most of these cook books alot because there are alot of food stains inside, Church and School Cook Books are my favorites. 
This Good Housekeeping cook book was printed in 1933 (6th edition) it was not for sale it was only given if you subscribed to Housekeeping magazine.
 This Cook Book from B.F.A. Club in Fairfax, Vermont, Bellows Free Academy  1937.
 Kitchen Kas ? New York State Year of History, recipes of Hurley Residents 1959, I love the old Gift tag that I found in the book.
(Above) Bread Pudding and Sherried Baized Beans (below) Grandmothers Famous Cranberry Bread
 This Cook Book was hand written and then printed
 Pork Cake? dont think I will be trying that one.
Take time for 10 things (love these) this was in the B.F.A. Club cookbook.
