Which do you prefer for cookies boquets? - Page 2

I followed CP's instructions that she posted about putting the sticks in before and then fixing any "poke throughs" with a glob of dough. It worked great!! Thanks Cake Princess!!

When I make cookie bouquets, I put a flattened piece of cookie dough on parchment papered cookie sheet. I lay my cookie stick (or popsicle stick) on that and then put my cut-out cookie on top--lightly pressing it down. Let it bake. When it comes out, if it has some rise to it or bubbles--I lightly press with a clean towel. Cookies stay put on stick.

If I get the bottom dough too thin and the stick shows, I just spread a thin coat of RI over that. No Prob!!!

I made the no-fail cookie recipe for the first time last night and tried: Wilton's sticks, the skewers and Starbucks stirring sticks and have to say Starbucks was the winner. It is thinner than a regular popscicle stick, looks nicer than a skewer. You need to make a very thick cookie (1/2 in. at least) to use Wilton's sticks. Now finding plastic bags wide enough to hold the cookie is a whole other challenge!

I just decorated for some bouquets for Mother's Day, I always bake with the sticks in. The only thing that happens on occassion is that the cookie will start to spin on the stick. In that case I just squirt some royal into the hole and push the stick back and let it dry. It stops the spinning and is still editable.

But what I would really like to see is the white candy sticks in a flat version, so the spinning thing would not happen.

My dumb butt looked at the pics that were posted on how to do it but didn't read it so i just pushed the skewers down and put a piece of dough over the back of each one.........lol.

I tried it both ways. When I inserted after baking, the stick fell out every time.

I've made cookie bouquets twice so far. Both times I've used the Wilton Cookie sticks and put them in before baking. I make my cookies between 1/4 and 1/2 inch think. With my mother's day cookies I only had 1 out of 100 break.

Okay, so I finished my cookie bouquets today! I have to say that the lollipop sticks are way too big to stick into the cookie before baking unless the cookies are really thick. Thankfully I found some skewers in the cupboard and used those, they worked great! I just pushed them in before baking and the cookies came out great. I only had one that I had to fix with royal icing. I think my cookies came out great, the best I have made so far. I just wish I could have gotten better pictures of them. I was in a hurry so I was not able to really capture all my work. Really enjoyed making these, can't wait to make more! Thank you all for your great tips!

I've just finished with my first attempt... exhausted... don't know how you guys do it !!! I'm not the least bit satisfied with the results, but I hope once it's put together my MIL will like it.

Anyway... I planned on trying both ways, before and after, but before was so easy (using the wooden skewers) that I only tried that method. I had read the tutorial that Cake Princess posted and that worked perfectly for me.
