Your cookies and packaging are perfect. I have just begun fiddling with cookies, myself. But, as I study your pictures, I cannot fathom how you created the "tequila" text on the cookie. Could you please explain that technique -- it would be appreciated.

Great job! Love your packaging. Your site is so neat - so this is a corporate order? You must keep very busy - your cookies all look wonderful. Now, do try to sneak in a short afternoon nap or soon your cookies will start speaking to you!

And also 20 dozen logo cookies (240!!) each one in a white gable box with ribbon.
Now I'm off for the holiday corporate order icon_smile.gif I'm very happy since it's my first year as a business icon_smile.gif

KHalstead Posted 16 Dec 2009 , 9:25pm

how much did you charge for these????????? They're stunning. Do you have a minimum that they have to order also??? Do you ever freeze them ahead of time. I had 2 doz. cookies for Sat . and 60 cookies, 300 cake truffles, 20 marshmallow snowmen, a cookie bouquet and 5 cookie Christmas cards for Sunday (not sure WHAT I was thinking taking it all on)........well, I made the birthday cookies a week ahead and froze them fully decorated and they came out perfectly! I'm definitely going to freeze cookies when I overbook myself in the future!

indydebi Posted 16 Dec 2009 , 9:34pm

I was actually thinking about this order this morning, wondering how it was coming. Wow, it looks very professional and well done! You definitely should be proud of this work! Excellent job! thumbs_up.gif

just_for_fun Posted 16 Dec 2009 , 10:00pm

My hands hurt just looking at that! I don't think I would have the strength to package them up after piping all that! (I'm also a little jealous of you. They are all so perfect and beautiful...)

verono Posted 16 Dec 2009 , 11:49pm

I still don't know how I did it..!! I don't want to do anything like that soon lol
I bake on sunday (regular oven, one sheet at a time).. started decorating while baking.. And I work monday 7h30am to 1am (with a few pause) and then tuesday 6h30am to 12h30am. Slept until 2am and then did the packaging until 7h15... The boxes are individually wrapped in shrink wrap.
My sister was supposed to help me with the ribbon but I was late in the cookies so it wasn't possible.. but she cut all the ribbon and the padding! Glad it's finally over.. now I can look to see what I'm doing for christmas.. lol

I have a minimum order of 24 cookies (regular sizes) in the same colors. I don't care about the shapes. I don't freeze cookies after they are baked. Only my cut-out unbaked shapes. I use glace so it doesn't freeze very well..
I charged 28.75/each for a 6.875x5x1.625" box. 11 cookies - 1 large cactus, 2 minis,1 sun, 6 limes (2 differents sizes) and one logo cookie.
Their budget was between 25 and 30 thumbs_up.gif
And the other corporate box (with christmas colors), was 15$/each but the logo cookie was VERY exhaustive to do.. all handcut (for the cookies and the edible image paper)

motherofgrace Posted 17 Dec 2009 , 12:12am

wow these are great!!! no i want to try it!

luv2bake6 Posted 17 Dec 2009 , 3:20am

The cookies and packaging are absolutely gorgeous! I can imagine how you felt when you finished packing up the very last one!lol
Where do you get your tins and padding? They are very nice.

Elise87 Posted 17 Dec 2009 , 8:58am

They look fantastic!! Very neat and clean presentation too. Well done to you on a great job thumbs_up.gif

Wow! The cookies look stunning! To think you did all that by yourself. You are one seriously talented lady. Well done indeed.
