I am making cameo cookies for my Grandma's 85th birthday, and I need help with packaging. I am used to cakes so this is new to me icon_smile.gif Since they will be decorated with fondant, and the cameo will be elevated off of the cookie, what is the best way to package these and have a pretty presentation? Any thoughts??? THanks icon_smile.gif

Bagged and tagged, using a coordinating paper for the tags would look lovely. Make one cookie larger than the others, and buy a clear acrylic easel frame. Position the easel in the center of your display (tray, table, whatever) and place the large cookie (without wrapping) on it like you would a painting. Surround it with the bagged cookies.

If you budget would allow, putting each cookie in a clear plastic box and tying with really pretty fabric ribbon is a very nice presentation. Especially if the cookie is also the party favor. Plastic boxes can be pricey though.

Both of those ideas are great!! In this situation, the cookies are my gift to my grandma, and only my grandma. So I was thinking more of a single box with the cookies inside, topped with a ribbon and bow...
My dilemma is how to arrange the cookies inside the box without covering up the design or just simply placing them side by side. Make sense?? I was looking for a creative way to box them together and yet having a striking impression. icon_smile.gif

careylynn, how many cookies do you want to put in the box. You could easily use a clear plastic box, so that your grandmother can see the cookies (and so will everyone else) without having to open a wrapped box. Again, use some thing decorative in the bottom and a really pretty fabric ribbon to tie it all up.

I know you can get them online. Michaels or AC Moore, or JoAnn's might also have something.
