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 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!
Great idea! I just shipped some and am afraid they broke. will remember these tricks for next time
