Here is my step by step to make baseball royal icing cookies. My son’s 1st grade class was having a baseball themed party. These would also be great for a baseball themed birthday party. Since this only used 2 colors it was fairly easy. And they came out great.
(*updated note 8/9/2018 I have added another post making baseballs using a wet on wet technique. Check it out -click here. You choose which method you want to use.)
I used the Wilton Sugar Cookie Recipe and the Wilton Royal Icing Recipe.
After the cookies were baked and cooled I put the first layer of white icing. I first outlined the circles and flooded the cookie completely. I let these dry overnight.
Use a toothpick for air bubbles or for any touch up.
After the cookies were set I drew the red ball lines using a Wilton edible marker. The line helps as a guide when piping.
First I did the long lines and then after those were set I added the stitching. They came out really cute.
I put each cookie in a bag for each student. These would be great for a baseball birthday party. You could do tennis balls or basketballs too for a sports theme.
We sell lots of Baseball theme party supplies in our PartyMajors webstore.
