I have been asked to make 200 decorated cookies for a professional conference. The cookie must be in the shape of the lower penninsula of Michigan. I have found state cookie cutters on-line, but they're only 3" tall. Any idea where I can find either a bigger Michigan cutter (5.5" or 6") or someone who will custom-make one cutter for me? Thanks for your help! (Cookies are a new thing for me.)

I have ordered their stock cutters. They are good quality, and ship relatively fast.

Hope that helps!

www.coppergifts.com will also do a custom cookie cutter. If you want to compare prices.

Try www.foosecookiecutters.com
If they can not make the cutter for you, they sell kits that enable you to craft the cutter yourself.

Thanks for your responses! I found someone who will custom-make the cutter I need for $20 -- frankencutters.com in Ludington, Michigan. Excellent customer service. If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll report on the quality of the cutter when I receive it next week.

I just received my cutters today and they're great. He responded quickly the first time I emailed him a week ago. Did you send your email to [email protected]? Anyway, the cutters are copper w/ handles - great quality. Good luck.

nickdrewnjaysmom ~ I saw a cross that shape at one of our local fancy grocery stores. I think it was by Anne CLark and I know you can buy those online. It's a beautiful cookie!!!


Here's a link. It is about four down. You can buy them from other sites as well. Hope this helps.

nickdrewnjaysmom - It took about a week. When he emailed, he asked when I needed it and I told him by the end of this week, so I think he just goes by how urgently you need it.
