Super Bowl Cookies (GF, DF, EF)

Happy (almost) Super Bowl Sunday!

Hopefully you saw Budweiser’s Best Bud commercial, which is heart-wrenching as always. Now, in my kitchen, I’ve been getting ready for the Super Bowl with a little bit of decorating!

Super Bowl XLIX

For my friends with celiac disease, I used two new products to decorate these cookies: Satin Ice Fondant and Wilton’s Shape-N-Amaze. Satin Ice Fondant is gluten, dairy, and nut free. Additionally, I contacted Wilton to confirm that the Edible Decorating Dough is gluten free, but it’s actually made in a gluten free facility (as of December 2013).

Key Gluten Free Decorating Items

The first step to decorating was to bake cookies. I used chocolate chip because that’s what I had in the house, but I recommend a sugar cookie (or even a cupcake). Once the cookies came out of the oven, I used a diamond and a circle cookie cutter, both of which my sister gave me for Christmas.

Peeling of the Extra Fondant

Hand whipped buttercream icingAfter cutting out the appropriate shape of fondant, I spread buttercream icing (GF, DF, EF) on to the cookie before applying the fondant. Since I didn’t have a mixer, I had to whip the icing by hand, which proved to be a nice little work out. I saved the leftover buttercream icing to decorate the cookies, as we’ll see below!

Add the fondant!

For some of the cookies, I dyed the fondant first. For red and green, I simply used red and green dye respectively. For a deeper blue, I used a mixture of blue and purple. Lastly, for brown, I used cocoa powder. Be sure to mix the dye in thoroughly because you need less than you think!

All the Diamond Cookies should have Brown Fondant!

Fondant on All the Cookies

Once all the cookies had a base layer of fondant, I made a bunch of footballs with the brown diamonds. Drew a Seahawk, Patriot, and a patriot on the smaller colored circle. Then, I built a field on the two larger cookies.

Football Cookies

  1. Use a football or diamond cookie cutter to cut out the cookie.
  2. Apply buttercream frosting.
  3. Add cocoa powder to the fondant, and cut it out in the diamond shape. Super Bowl Cookies (GF, DF, EF)
  4. Next, using the buttercream frosting, ice on the laces.

    Enjoy Your Cookie!

Now, my favorite cookies were the ones I made for each of the teams on the smaller circles because they were so much brighter!

Super Bowl Cookies

  1. Using a circle cookie cutter, add a circle shape of fondant onto the cookie. For this Super Bowl, I used green, blue, and red fondant for my cookies.
  2. Using a thin tip (and looking at an image), draw on the team logo. You may use whatever color fondant you would like as long as it stands out. If you mess up it’s easy to wipe the frosting off of this fondant.

  3. Then add on a border in another color.

    Super Bowl XLIX Cookies

For my last two cookies, I decorated with my left over bits of fondant and using the edible dough. I used the edible dough to make a football. I dyed this dough brown using chocolate too. I liked the edible dough, but it doesn’t taste very good. Fortunately, with the cocoa powder, the dough tastes much better!

I already ate one of the cookies, and I must admit the fondant tastes pretty good. On the other hand, I always love the taste of sugar. 🙂

And of course, I am bringing these cookies to the Anniversary Addition of Fiesta Friday, where they’ll serve as both a dessert and a celebratory treat. While unfortunately, I’ll be on an airplane during the actual Super Bowl, I’m glad that I’m able to share these treats with all of you!

Happy Super Bowl Weekend Y’all! Go Pats! 

P.S: My sister also gave me the decorating kit for Christmas! Thanks Bri!
