To celebrate England's 3-2 win over Sweden on Friday night I have immortalised the team in biscuit form. The only downside to the win is that I can't make a joke about my biscuit team playing better than England do!! If you look closely there's also a mysterious new member of the team...
This is my second entry into our new Calendar Cakes Challenge...my first being these Lime and Vodka Russian Doll Cakes. I'm co-hosting the challenge with Dolly Bakes, so check out her blog for more info on this month's theme: Euro 2012.
To make these cookies, you can use any cookie dough recipe such as this one from BBC GoodFood and the cookie cutter came from Cakes, Cookies and Crafts. These cookies would also be great for a young football fan's birthday, they could be decorated in any team's kit as required!
Once the cookies are baked, you just need to make some royal icing which is fairly stiff. This can be used to pipe an outline for your footballer. The icing should then be made a little runnier by adding water. To flood fill the cookies, put the icing in a small piping bag and snip off the end, fill the outline with icing and use the end of the piping bag to push it out to the edges...simples!
