Pink and gold breast cancer decorated sugar cookies - ribbons and boxing gloves

I usually start my posts with a little story that quickly moves from normal (like a hungry person eating french fries with ketchup) to out of control (like 7 polka dot unicorns dancing the conga down the highway while setting off fireworks and releasing glitter balloons and then jumping into a pool filled with bouncy balls and grape jello) in about 4 seconds flat. I can't help it.  My thoughts just go from one side of my brain to the other when I start writing a post. Mostly because I type my posts late at night. And also maybe because I eat too much sugar on a regular basis.

But guys... there's nothing funny about cancer.

It breaks my heart EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

My stomach clenches up tight and regular things like breathing and making school lunches and buying socks at Target...just stop making sense.

I made these cookies for one of the fightingest fighters I have EVER known. From Playground Pals to rec center running...this girl inspires me.

And there is nothing I can do.

I hate that. know... I made cookies.

Because I don't have any other answers.

How to make Fight For A Cure boxing glove decorated sugar cookies: 

Step 1. 

Before baking, use the bottom corner of the snowman cutter to cut the knobby part off the right side of the cookie. Bake as you normally would.

Step 2.

Outline the top of the boxing glove with a medium consistency pink icing and a #3 tip. I like to start with the swirly part for the thumb and pipe the outside outline before coming back and piping the backward "L" shape for the rest of the hand. Let dry for an hour.

Step 3. 

Fill in the top area with the same medium consistency pink icing. Use enough icing to give it a puffy look...but make sure to not overfill the outline. Immediately add a reflection (shine line) to the top of the glove with a medium consistency lighter pink and a #1.5 tip.

Step 4.

Outline and fill the bottom part of the glove with a light pink icing and a #3 tip. Let dry for at least four hours.

Step 5.

Add the cuff detail to the side of the glove with gray icing and a #1.5 tip. Pipe two "X" shapes for laces with the darker pink icing and a #1.5 tip.
