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}.

Cute and chubby baseball bats are adorable mixed with other baseball-themed cookies.

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!

    Hi Callye – you mentioned that this was a bubbly batch of icing…mine is ALWAYS like that! How do you combat the bubbles other than just popping them with a toothpick? This is not a very time-saving method, and I’m hoping you have a trick for this! I’ve tried letting the icing sit in the mixing cup for 5 minutes and then stirring it again to pop bubbles before filling my bottles, but that doesn’t seem to do anything about the little bubbles, which are the ones that drive me crazy and can mar the final product. Thanks for any advice!

    Hello!

    I LOVE your site, and you are the main reason I started decorating cookies! That said, it bothers me a bit that you categorize cookies by gender. Why can’t a girl enjoy a baseball bat cookie just as much as a boy?

    Bisides this, like I said, you are the best there is! :D

      I totally understand. My girl is a ball player also, I just posted them there to make them a little easier to find under a more commonly associated category. Sorry if I offended you. I truly believe girls are just as capable as boys in any endeavor.
