So here you can my initial design :
-I studied actual football images online and then I came up with this design, I was hoping I could make them look almost like a real thing, mainly I wanted to avoid childish appearance.
Cookies were for 50th Birthday and so I decided to add 50 to the design.
Make it easier for myself all the numbers are Royal Icing Transfers. I just gotta thank to the RIT inventor, my life at times would be pretty miserable, especially when trying to make all the 50 look the same.Once again I used Dry on Wet Technique to apply numbers to my cookies, you can find more about this here,
or if you'd like you can also visit my page dedicated to COOKIE DECORATING
Some of the details were hand painted with food gel coloring.
Since I had some cookie dough left I decided to make a Name Cookie.
Here is what it looked like before I finished it with all the details :
