Decorated Sugar Cookies - Kawaii Dota 2

My boyfriend is OBSESSED with Dota 2. In fact he's playing it as I type this blog post! Over the years dating him I have learned to accept the fact that he is truly addicted. When he suggested that I make his friend Isaac Dota 2 cookies for his graduation, I had a sneaking suspicion that he was hoping I'd end up with "extras." He did end up helping, though! He actually piped the bottom left red cookie in the above picture. (For those of you wondering what that is supposed to be, it's the Dota 2 logo which is supposed to represent the map on which the game is played.) I was so proud of him - I could hardly tell his cookie apart from mine! 

As you can see, my cookies are only loosely based on the actual characters - I was going for more of a kawaii look. They are cookies, after all! I actually didn't like these cookies at all after I had completed the set, but when I woke up the next morning I took one look at them and loved them. Don't ask me why. The bright, fun colors and their cute little faces just make me happy!
