Upward Basketball!

It's the end of winter sports!  My boys tried Upward Basketball this year and we were so pleased with the program.

It helped to know lots of other children who were in Upward as well.  Made for some fun games, and the parents even got to socialize with each other.  :)

My boys had amazing coaches -- 
can't say enough good things about them!

Here's an order I did for a friend who's son was on the Eagles team.

I flooded orange on the cookie and immediately placed a royal icing transfer of the Upward star symbol on top.

I let it dry over night and then drew the black basketball lines on with a food color pen and piped on the wording in purple.

I did cookie favors for my seven and five year old's teams as well, but didn't write out Upward or their team name.

I just went with the star logo on a basketball.

I like both styles.

I was also going to make Basketball cake pops using my Babycakes Cake Pop Maker, but ran out of time - no surprise!

Instead, I ran out to Food Lion and snagged a box of Oreos, which I dipped in orange candy melt, let harden, and drew on Basketball lines with a food color pen.

Black food color pens come in SOOOO handy, sometimes!

They weren't perfect, but they WERE delicious!
