Our office is participating in a huge marketing event. Estimated attendance is about 1200. The event is called "What Women Want" . I spoke to my boss about making iced cookies to hand out, but I don't know what to do as far as design. She was thinking of purple and green colors with our logo. OK.. sounds good in theory until you realize that our logo is:
no artwork of any kind.. just the letters. I know we'll have either a sticker or a card attached with our information, but i'd like the cookies to stand out a bit more. Our office catchphrase is "architects of health" - but I can't see writing that on every cookie.
do you think writing CHC on each cookie would be enough? We're chiropractors and I've yet to see a spine shaped cookie cutter, lol.
If the event is "What women want," why not hand out a cookie that appeals to women (dress, shoe, purse)? You can then attach a business card to the packaging. Here is a picture of birth announcement/shower favor cookies I have made. The announcement part at the top is just printed out onto a business card and attached with double sided tape. Hope this helps.
Sorry, the picture doesn't seem to be showing up. If refreshing the page doesn't work, here is the link to the photo in my gallery.
You can do something pretty and feminine in those colors with the letters.
I've not seen a spine cutter either, but you could make a gingerbread cookie and pipe the spine in royal icing. (You could also use the chocolate recipe with the GB shape.)
You could do scrubs or white coats w/ purple and green flowers or CHC as monogram:
I think the scrubs idea is cute and in pink and purple to appeal to women and then have the logo in the front. I've done some cookies with scrubs and its really easy and quick.
chovest - the pic is great.. i think we'll package that way. then instead of tying ribbon after ribbon i can just staple, lol
Honey dukes - i LOVE the idea of the GB man with the royal icing spine! I think I can do that quickly, easily and adorably (is that a word?) with 3 different leaf tips. I'm going to try it tonight with some sugar cookie dough that needs to be baked!
I loved these simple scrub tops, you could alternate white, green & purple, using the company name on each. http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1224309
Go luck to you - be sure to post the finished product, I'd love to see it!!!
You know, now that I think of it, you could do regular sugar cookies and ice them with RI or (my fav) Toba's Glace' in peach and brown and then pipe the spine. They'd look like those spine pictures I linked. You can also tint your SC dough peach.
And yes, "adorably" is a word!!
another good idea HoneyDukes, lol
Scrubs are cute, but we don't wear scrubs and my boss can't stand them for some reason, lol. I know she'd get a bigger kick out of the spines. Maybe I'll try the sugar cookies with toba glaze tonight. Now if I could just convince my son to go to sleep early so I can play, lol
I didn't realize chiropractors don't wear scrubs. I love the Dr.s and the scrub tops -- I'm just aching to make some! Maybe for my vet for Christmas.
Have fun and let us know how they turn out!
*Everyone quietly sings*
Lullaby, and good night,
With pink roses bedight,
With lilies o'erspread,
Is my baby's sweet head.
Lay you down now, and rest,
May your slumber be blessed!
Lay you down now, and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed!
i just made 12 dozen cookies and if you're doing 1200 i would keep it simple...what about a circle alternate the colour choice with a few vines and flowers (you can cut out fondant quickly and it freezes well). just a thought-oh i forgot to leave room for the logo (my hand is still sore today and i only put "habitat for humanity" on half of them
simple is definintely a priority, lol.
i have to make more tomorrow, but i did a few test cookies monday night. the 'spine' with a leaf tip is very easy and quick. my royal icing was too thin so i didn't hold the look, so i need to check the consistency better next time. As soon as I get a finished cookie I'll post a pic
