How to Make Simple Baseball Cookies with a Video

Did you play baseball when you were a kid? I guess you don’t have to be an all-star player to make baseball cookies and that’s a good thing for me because I played softball and I wasn’t very good at it.

All I remember was waking up early on Saturday morning, putting on my uniform and standing in the middle of left field hoping someone would hit the ball to me. No one ever did.

I wasn’t upset because I never dreamed of becoming a softball super star, but playing did teach me how to be patient. I would look up in the sky and see the clouds and let my imagination run wild with what shape the clouds made. Was the big cloud a dinosaur or a dragon? Do I see a puppy or a skinny hippo?

Seeing the different shapes and standing there all alone in left field helped grow my imagination and teach me patience. Maybe that’s why I like making cookies.

  • Outline the baseball cookie with the brown icing and let it dry for a few minutes.
  • Next, flood the glove with the brown icing and be careful not to cover the piped lines. This will help the fingers on the mitt look separate.
  • Let the icing dry overnight.

  • Airbrush the outer edge of the mitt and the seams in between the fingers with the brown airbrush color.
  • Airbrush the part of the mitt where you put your hand in the mitt.
  • Pipe the stitches with the brown icing and let it dry for about 10 minutes.

  • Here is the part that makes me a little nervous. Use the airbrush gun to make the mitt look dirty. Spray a few random dark spots and lightly spray the rest of the glove to make everything match and the colors blend.

  • Outline and flood the baseball bat cookies with tan royal icing.
  • Let the icing dry overnight.
  • Place wood grain stencil in the Stencil Genie or use magnets to hold it in place.
  • Airbrush the bat cookies with the warm brown airbrush color.
  • Remove the stencil and airbrush the edges with and add a little color to the knot on the bats.

You may be asking yourself where’s the ball. I didn’t take pictures of it. Does that make me a horrible blogger? I was so excited that I was finally making the bat and the mitt that I forgot to take pictures of the cookies. I’ll make more soon!

I used a mini heat gun to dry the surface of the cookies. It was raining the day I made these and I wanted the cookies to shine so I used the mini heat gun and it’s wonderful! Just hold it over the surface of the cookies for a few seconds and the icing will shine and you won’t have creators.

The next time someone asks you to play baseball you can either grab a glove and go stand in left field or you can look at the clouds and make some baseball cookies. I think I’ll stick with the cookies for now.

Bear hugs,
