Super Bowl XLV.
We just returned home from the Jones’s Super Bowl party. Everyone had a great time, even if Philip was the only Steelers fan in the bunch! (Not that everyone else was a Packers fan, of course. Some were Dolphins, Panthers, etc.) There were a ton of kids in the 9-16 range this time, so the boys were quite entertained as well – an unexpected bonus!
When I asked Jennifer earlier in the week what she needed for the party, she said there was plenty of food planned, but nothing sweet. Sweet?! I’m pretty sure I can handle that! *wink*
I made cookies & cupcakes! I had an order for Steelers Super Bowl cookies for today, so I figured, “Why not go ahead and make double?” Then I decided to make a gift dozen for my friend Jan (HUGE Steeler fan!) and surprise her with them. While I was cutting out the cookies, Philip asked if I could make a few extra for a guy in his squadron, so I made eight more for Benford, too. Suddenly, 24 cookies turned into 61!
Coordinating Thank-You cookie.
(Yes, Philip says it looks like a basketball. I wanted to make my typical round, but I wanted it to look
like a football,with the words being the “laces.” Fail, I think.)
Cupcakes for each team.
(Taken at night under the kitchen light.)
Boy, these would have been big sellers around here. Uncle Tim said that the store sold more than even Thanksgiving and Christmas!!! Big fans around here. Very dissappointed today, but there’s always next year.
Keep up the great work. MOM
If the Steelers make it again, I’ll use the bigger jersey and get the names on there. Well, at least for one of ’em!
These look great! I want to know why you didn’t put Roethlisberger’s name on the back of his jersey though?!;)
LOL! I was *going* to, but there was just no way it would fit. I had a bigger jersey cutter, but then the jerseys would’ve been twice the size of everything else, so I decided to go with my smaller one. And I could’ve fit “Rodgers” and “Polamalu” on their jerseys, but I figured that since Ben’s wouldn’t fit, it wouldn’t be fair!
Great job!!! These look fantastic! I’m not sure I could have eaten them =)
Thanks! The cookies were alllll gone by the end of the party, and that made me feel GREAT!
