Hi All,
I am doing my first cookie order - 200 3" cookies wrapped in cello and tied with a ribbon - no backing/board underneath.
I need to transport these to the venue and I'm wondering how you all do this without breaking them. What can I put them in/on? I also need to transport a 4 tier cake in 4 separate boxes on the same day, so I only have so much room in my truck. I was thinking of ordering boxes, similar to the size of a large pizza box, and laying them out in a single layer, then stacking the boxes in the car. Is this a good idea? How do you all do it?

Thanks for your help!

I've always put them into a box, or the 40-cup rubbermaid container that I store or dry cookies in, or (of all things) a laundry basket, that is after they are bagged and tied. Just put them sitting up straight with bag ties at top (make sense?) and never had a problem.

Unless they are especially thin or fragile I cant imagine needing to lay them flat. I always just line them up in the box standing as shiney said. I've never had breakage.

I've transported mine standing as well in a fitted box. They all rest on each other, no breakage. Unless you make super thin cookies, i think the method i describe would work just fine.

I cut the tops off of bakery boxes (unless I have a huge order and need to use the extra-sturdy sheet cake boxes that are corrugated), line them with a few sheets of colored tissue paper, and stand the cookies up.

Wow, thank you so much for your help everyone!!! LOL, it never, ever occured to me to stand them up! They're not especially fragile, so I think that would work just fine! I have my test batch, so I'll try it with them to make sure before the big day!! Thanks again!!!
