I have an order for 200 boxing glove cookies. I have looked everywhere for an idea on how to decorate them and NOTHING !! Any ideas ?? I have no clue what it should look like. I got the cutter from Kitchen Krafts, but no decorating ideas there. icon_cry.gif

Do you know what event this is for? Both men and women? Women only? Children? I am working on something for you but I also need to know who is the intended audience?

Ok this is what I would do. I took the picture of the cookie cutter and drew our your color scheme. You are going to have to pardon my artisitic skills. (also my chicken scratch, I was jotting down some ideas) So basically you would do these following color schemes the first color in thelist below being the majority representing color 1

Red/black
Pink/white - if for women
Royal Blue/white
Royal Blue/black
All Gold for the Golden Glove
Yellow/black
Black/white
Red/white

I would cut out the fondant of color 1 with your cookie cutter, then i would take your cookie cutter and go over your cut piece of fondant and shift it over to the left about the amount shown on my picture and cut that part off with your cutter (unless you have a good steady consistant hand) Use a pizza cutter and cut out that portion. Then cut out the portion of color two from your second color of fondant and attach it to your cookies.

Then I would have a bag of Royal Icing I am thinking you may need to outline the whole cookie to give it detail with Royal Icing, maybe a black or a white...possibly white may do.

Then I would get another back of Royal Icing and either do a silver or gold and write the following phrases where it says messages I sooo dont have good writing with a pen let a lone with a pastry bag, So I hope you can do this.



TKO
KO
Everlast
"Rumble"
Sugar Ray
Tyson
Marciano
Ali
Uppercut
Jab
Hook
IBHOF - International Boxing Hall of Fame
WBHOF - World Boxing Hall of Fame

I would dust this with shimmer.

I also am including a good picture that demonstrates contrast of the boxing glove. Maybe my drawing is off a little big but your cookie cutter is a side view, but this picture should help you get a take on my vision.

icon_eek.gif Granted I know you need to make 200 Cookies and this will be alot of work, hope they are paying you well, cuz I think these would turn out good. I have had fondant on cookies for a week and they still tasted fresh I kept them in a ziplock. I hope this helps GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!

ADDITION/Ammendment to my post: I just looked at your gallery, you look like a good Royal Icer, you might be able to do the whole thing with royal icing, I sooo suck at it, so thats why I stick to fondant. So if you create your dams in one color that could be your outline that i was referring to above....after looking at your cookies you can do it with Royal Icing, please let me know how it turns out.

The red and black color scheme seems a little too complicated for me. I'd do them all in red, half of them with white "x" stitching for the inside of the glove. The other half with a rectangular shaped label on the cuff that reads, "Everlast." Here are two very simple pictures for you. I'm guessing you are using a mitten cutter? -- just "moosh" down the cuff a little or leave it be, either way it's perfect for these.

Honeydukes is right, it might be better to use a mitten cookie cutter this boxing cutter you have is kinda wierd looking. Honey has the right idea, her's is more simple and probably easier to knock out 200 in no time, so if the everylast is too long you can also to TKO also. Honeydukes probably has a much better approach. Good Luck. You should probably check out the mitten cutter and do a trial for both and see what comes out the best!!! But if i had to guess I would say the muffin cutter is better

Kneadacookie, that's exactly what I thought when I got it. The person I am doing the cookies for ordered it and I have NO idea what this cutter is supposed to be. I guess a side view ????? I think, actually, that I am going to use my mitten cutter just a little smooshed up. I think I can figure that one out a whole lot easier. I don't think she will care as long as they are boxing gloves.

I don't know about being right, but I'm all for easy! icon_lol.gif

BTW, I didn't realize you wrote 200 -- I thought it read 20!! icon_eek.gif Hopefully you own some food color markers. They'll make it so much easier to write Everlast rather than pipe it. If you're piping, I'd go with what fondantfrenzy suggested, TKO! At least on half of the 100.

ya thats why after i had all these brilliant ideas, i was like...hmmm thats a lot of writing..ha ha ha ha ha TKO is good....

Hope your client wont get all offended, better check with her..cuz you know how some people get all wigged out.....that cookie cutter is a side view..and its supposed to be a boxing glove thats what it said in the description, I am sure the person didnt know any better, but you should probably check anyways..just tell her you found one from a front view and you think it will look better ..dont tell her its a mitten icon_evil.gif

Yeah, I will check. But I'm sure she won't have a problem. I just did an order of 400 Eiffel Tower cookies for her last month.

And as far as the cutter being a side view--can anybody figure it out ??? A side view, how ??? I have racked my brain most of the day trying to figure out how it is a side view. Hmmm...............

I think it's an upright view of the glove. The little lumps are where the top of the mitt and the thumb meet. The rounded part is the back of the hand. That's my guess. icon_confused.gif

Do you know if it's a Kitchen Collectables cutter? They used an old Corel Draw program for a lot of their designs. I can't find the book or I'd look it up.

Ok, they are done !! I was not happy with them cuz I'm not sure what a freakin' boxing glove cookie should look like, but the client LOVED them.
Pics are in my photos.
