I need some ideas! I have a customer that has ordered NFSC with Antonio's glaze icing. I do not know anything about the person whose funeral it is. I don't even know if they are for a male or female! Any suggestions of how I could decorate some cookies? TIA
Were they religious (you could find out if the funeral is at a church or from the obituary)? You could do a cross maybe?
If not religious, then flowers may be appropriate even if it is a guy. Brush embroidery flowers look elegant.
Who ordered the cookies? Maybe you could ask how to make them personal/special for that person's family?
I don't know if this helps at all. I wish you the best on this, it's a tough one.
I really have no idea. When I took the order, I was kinda in shock at what they were for. She ordered them from me last week sometime, but they aren't due until Saturday. So, I'm wondering if it's like a memorial service for someone that passed away awhile ago? Not sure. I guess I'm going to have to call her and see what exactly she had in mind!
If you could do edible images, maybe a nice little poem? Or something simple like 'you will be missed'. Maybe hearts with initials in them?
I think asking is best because you could maybe get a feel for the personality of the person, and if it's a serious type funeral or more of an Irish wake type thing. For a more 'celebration of life' type service you could really do a lot more. Like fish cookies for a man who loved to fish...
I would think that if they wanted some decorations on the cookies, they would have asked for it.
If they didn't ask for any special decoration I wouldn't put any on there.
Did you ever find out from the customer what they wanted??
I know its late now, but maybe an idea for next time. We are having a memorial service for my father-in-law this weekend, we are doing Angel cookies, and just decorating them to look like an, well Angel. Just an idea.
Thank you for all of your ideas! I guess the person had passed away the beginning of Dec, but they were having a memorial service just a few days before Christmas. I ended up just doing round cookies with white icing & "snow" dust on the top. Very simple but I think they were pleased.
