I did 250 cookies in 16 hours, baked and decorated and packaged the following day...

But in all honesty I would never do it again because it was just me working it alone.

I since then have planned ahead and organized my time better, so on day 1 I bake, day 2 I decorate, day 3 package and deliver.

I also learned to bake extras in case of damage or breaking along the way icon_smile.gif

I made 200 cookies in 2 days. It was a last minute order and i couldn't say cuz it was also a tremendous advertisement potential for me. The first day was baking, flooding, and preparing the colored icing i needed to decorate. The second day was decorating and bagging.
But honestly, i'd never do that again. It's so hard and if anything goes wrong, there isn't any time to redo anything. And i worked late into those 2 nights (had to stop when kids came home and then resume when they went to sleep). It was exhausting and it took a week to recoup physically!

I recently decorated 50 cookies over about 8 hours for a church bake sale. It took me so long because I am still fairly new at decorating and flooding with royal icing and because I did several different designs and colors. Next time I will keep it simple!

I make 5 dozen cookies every Monday and Wednesday...for delivery the next day.
From taking coookie dough out of freezer to completion it takes me about 1.5 hours.


I make up 3 batches of cookie dough at a time -
Roll out tray size quantities inbetween two sheets of oven bake paper
Wrap each quantaty in glad wrap -
Lay all layers flat in freezer -
So as when i need a tray load i just grab some layers.

It takes 3 minnies to thaw -
Cut out shapes -
Pop each tray in fridge for 5 minutes -
Then straight into Oven -
Whilst cookies are cooling i colour and roll out my Regalice (fondant)
Cut out shapes -
Place on cookie -
Decorate - fiddle around with decorations -
Done and dusted.
Trayed up ready for delivery. thumbs_up.gif


So much easier and quicker than making cookie dough every time i need to make a delivery.
Then when i am running low i just make a few batches of dough up after dinner - so as it doesn't bite into my day.

I did 600 cookies (6X100 wedding cake cookies) in 40 hours (in like 3 and a half days)...

I must say that I don't have a commercial oven.. So much time for the cooking !

Depends on the cookie, of course.

50 Hello Kitty cookies took 5-7 hours. 100 dog biscuit shaped cookies for wedding favors were iced in just a couple of hours. If I had known the fondant trick then, those 100 cookies would have taken about 20 minutes! icon_lol.gif

Fondant is definately a time saver when you have so many cookies to do in very little time.

I assume you stacked the cookies to form the wedding cake cookies. Sounds like a neat idea! Do you have photos?

I did 300 six inch cookies in less than 48 hours (baking, decorating and bagging). It was for a fundraiser. Originally it was supposed to be 100 and by Friday morning (cookies due Sunday afternoon), it was at 300. I had to tell them to stop selling cookies as I was doing it alone. I was in school at the time and my mother stayed up ALL night with me to help flood the cookies and then Sunday morning I had an assembly line going (mother, father, myself) packaging them. LOL - never again!
