Game Face Football Cookies

Technically, these little fellas aren't really wearing their game faces.  In googling "game face" I learned that a game face is akin to a "poker face", emotionless.  In my ignorance,  I thought a game face was  a mean, intimidating face, but even then I couldn't stop myself from making some cute, smiley faces on these football cookies.

For you sticklers out there, please forgive me. 

Even so, I claim a play on words since they are going to be a part of the big game. 

Okay, enough of my cornball ramblings, and on to more cookies...
football stadium cookies. 

I cannot take credit for this creative idea... 
Elizabeth, of Lizy B, made these awesome stadium cookies last year and I knew there would be some in my future. She is a fabulous cookier, and visiting her site is always a treat!

For another stadium goodie, take a look at this amazing Super Bowl Sundae from Katrina of In Katrina's Kitchen. She always has something sweeeet to share on her blog! 

I had a lot of fun making these football themed cookies and I'm sure you will too! 
So...put on your game face and get in on the action:) 

Football themed cookies

Stadiums:
The stands of people are made by pouring sprinkles over white royal icing, while it is wet.  Then the green royal icing is added.  When it's completely dry, the white stripes and numbers are added.

Footballs:
Outline and fill the footballs with brown royal icing.  When dry, add football details and the facial features in white and black.
