My oldest son joined his first team sport this fall and we couldn't be more excited about it and proud of him! He has always been a swimmer - and is quite good for his age (if I do say so myself!) He has been asking about basketball for a couple of years now - but has been a little young to play in any leagues. This summer, he went to a basketball camp and LOVED it!
He had his first practice and game over the weekend and had a blast. I made these basketball cookies for him to celebrate the occasion. I used a package sugar cookie (you could do this or make your own from scratch) and I followed the same royal icing recipe and decorating instructions from the Brown Eyed Baker that I used for my Power Ranger Samurai Cookies. I need to work on the steadiness of my hand - but I'm fairly new to cookie decorating!
My son was so excited when he saw these - and my little one of course too! He got to enjoy his during the actual game!
