Notre Dame Football Cookies

By now, you know that I love a Notre Dame cookie set. Case in point: set 1, set 2, and set 3. A football-themed set has been in my mind for years because who can resist those gold helmets??? Also, I watched Rudy last about major inspiration. These are for the Notre Dame-Navy game, which is a very cool tradition.

I'll walk you through the recipes I used and some of the important details.

I used my go-to perfect every time vanilla almond cut-out cookies rolled to 3/8". For the icing...royal icing.

Ian Book and Chase Claypool are my cookie players. I'm not sure it shows up really well in the photos, but those helmets are GOLD!!! Love! I used Kings Gold by CK. The football player cookie cutter AND the design are by Sweet Sugarbelle.

The fields! I've made football stadium cookies before, but have seen so many circle versions on Instagram, I wanted to try those. I bought navy, yellow, and green nonpareils from Layer Cake Shop. Those are the only colors one should wear in Notre Dame Stadium.

Oh, and the sign!!! The Play Like a Champion Today sign that the players touch before going onto the field. I made that, trying to keep the same font. Luckily, it's a simple one, and I think they turned out pretty ok! I used a PME #1.5 tip to pipe the lettering.
