I have orders for 8" heart cookies for Valentines. I've never made cookies this large. Can I bag them or should I get boxes? This is one of those "I'll never do this again for this price".

I would get boxes. Those are some big cookies!

I cut a cardboard backing to put them on, with a few dabs of frosting as glue. If they're too thin, they will break.

For my large 12" heart cookies I used foam board and cut out a "cake board" and covered it just like I would for a cake - then I can just use cellophane to wrap and tie with a bow....I think it was cheaper than boxes and takes up a lot less room![/img]

For fragile cookies, I cut cakeboard to fit the cello bag and place two layers of parchment paper in between the cookie and the cakeboard to prevent the cakebaord from getting butter staining and detracting from the overall look. It has worked like a charm, even on my long-necked electric guitar cookies and those were plenty fragile. Worked great! thumbs_up.gif
