VT Maryland 2009 012


it’s football time, and this season has definitely provided a few good opportunities to do some Virginia Tech “cooking”  – which I’ve decided to post since I had such a difficult time finding examples online when I took on a few of these projects.

here are the “hokie bird” cookies, cookie cutter purchased at the Tech Bookstore:

September 19-21 084

definitely the most difficult – and in order to get the maroon frosting that dark, I had to use so much food coloring gel that it stained your mouth.  but they were cute.

This batch also included a few of the more basic “VT” cookies:

September 19-21 088

and here’s the whole shebang on my football platter:

September 19-21 239

For the Tech/Miami tailgate in Blacksburg, I went with the basic VT cookies but this time I used maroon and orange M&Ms for decoration rather than frosting:

Not the greatest picture and the heat of the baking cracked the M&Ms, but you get the idea.  I hope.

And now the fun part… Virginia Tech Jello shots!  For the first tailgate, I started off easy – black cherry and orange layers:

Which you can hardly distinguish here.

But now for tailgate #2, it’s getting serious.  Five layers – maroon, white, orange, white, maroon.

Yes, my parents are proud.

Woo  – can’t wait for tomorrow!  Let’s go Hokies, beat Maryland!!!!
