0 Frosting Sugar Cookie Tip: Tennis Balls

I love it when someone asks me to design a sugar cookie.  I never quite know how it is going to turn out.  

Make a tennis ball?  Sure!  

With the letters USU?  (Utah State University)  Sure!

A round cookie is easy but getting the color was more of a challenge. The gal who asked me to make these cookies is a tennis instructor and I wanted to make sure the colors were right. It turns out a combo of Wilton Lemon Yellow and Wilton Kelly Green did the trick.  I used the 3 step frosting technique  and wondered how I was going to make the white "curves" of the ball.

I found a Rubbermaid container and practiced pressing the edge slightly into a frosted cookie. When  I found the right spot, I marked the Rubbermaid edge with a Sharpie marker.


This made it so much EASIER to pipe the frosting with a No. 4 Wilton tip into the imprint, making perfect looking tennis balls in no time!

All was left was to write USU in Wilton Navy blue (Royal Blue + Black) with a No. 6 Wilton tip.  


Woo hoo! What do you think?
