Cute Baseball Bat Cookies

Over the years I’ve made many baseball-themed cookies, but it’s always bothered me that the common bat cutter isn’t proportionate to the rest of the shapes.  Luckily I have generous and creative friends like Natalie, of Palestine Painted Cookie who shared this idea for a “fat baseball bat” cookie.  I love it so much I may never use my old baseball bat cutter again!

I followed Natalie’s advice and used a milk bottle cutter for this design but if you don’t have one on hand a necktie would work well also.

Fat Baseball Bat Cookie Cutters

Create a baseball bat shape by trimming the corners with a sharp knife.


Use your fingers to round off any sharp corners.

To decorate these cookies you will need:

  • Brown piping and flood icing
  • Red piping and flood icing
  • Dark brown piping icing

Begin by outlining the photos as pictured below.


Flood the sections, waiting a few minutes for each color to dry before moving to the next one.  You might also notice that I had a rather bubbly batch of icing this time around.  Since I knew that I’d eventually add wood grain, I decided to skip stressing and cover them with a few finishing details.  It’s a simple solution, but definitely one to remember.  Bubbles happen.

Anywho, finish up by adding the woodgrain and handle detail {#1.5 and #2 tips, in that order}.

Stay tuned because my plan for June is to focus on perfect cookies WITHOUT a Kopykake.  Don’t be surprised to see another cookie in the set VERY soon.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
