I LOVE football and the Superbowl. When I lived in Minnesota, my family and I had a Superbowl party every year. I've been making Superbowl cookies for a few years now. Check out some of my previous year over on my Flickr. Most years I really don't care who wins the game, I just enjoy watching it. This year is different. It pained me dearly to waste my time making Patriot cookies. I've NEVER been a fan of the Patriots, especially Tom Brady. I'll just leave it at that. I only made Patriot cookies because I'm somewhat superstitious. In 2012 I only made Notre Dame cookies when they were in the National Championship game and it only ended in heartache. Now I make sure both teams are represented even if I don't like them.
I made some different cookies this year because I didn't want to make the same thing as last year since the Seahawks are in the Superbowl again. The stadium cookies came from this tutorial, and the football players from here. I tried something new with the football cookies this time. I used this stencil to airbrush the cookie before adding the other details.
