HI I have a few question about the bouquet.
1) do you put the stick in the cookie while it is baking or right after you take it out of the oven?
2) do you usually wrap each cookie in clear bag ( it is for a friend)
3) do most of you just use terra cotta pot and dress it up with foil or something else?
4)anything else I need to know?
thanks

Usually I put the stick in right after is comes out of the oven.

Some people wrap the cookies but mostly if they are going to make a bouquet then leave unwrapped.

You can all most anything, flower pot, cute sturdy boxes, beach pails anything you can see using can be used. I have seen some really cute stuff.

I haven't done much of these but I'll try to help.
1) Yes you put the stick first, I've used wooden sticks (popsicle sticks) and they work good too.
2) the wrapping is up to you, you could wrap them one by one. Or wrap the bouquet with cellophane wrap all together.
3) You can use almost anything to put your cookies, a box, a pot, a vase, a mug.........

I hope this helps and good luck, thumbs_up.gif

amaniemom, you can also use a styrofoam from in your container and stick the cookie sticks in it. For decoration use that colored shredded paper (like Easter basket grass). If you place some glue on the styrofoam to tack down the grass that would be a good idea as well. And since it is for a friend, I would just wrap the whole thing in cellophane with a great big bow.

I have made a fair amount of cookie bouquets and tried different ways. I find that I put the stick on first (I use skewers) I place the skewer on the back of the cookie, gently push it in a little then place a small piece of cookie dough on top, turn them over and bake. Every other way I have found that my cookies were falling off of the sticks, this way they work great and are very sturdy.

For clients I either individually wrap the cookies with cello or wrap the whole thing with cello just for the freshness factor, they last for weeks when wrapped.

I use any container that I think will go with the theme of the bouquet, terra cota you can paint or add great designs. I use floral foam in the bottom of the container to hold the sticks and then cover with shredded tissue paper with matching colors of the cookies
