do you do cakes AND cookies?

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
just wondering how many here do both? Or do you only do cookies? I do both and there are many times I wish I only did cookies icon_smile.gif I enjoy them so much more than the cakes! Just wondering what others take on this is?

I do both. Lately I've been making my kids more cookies than cake because I don't eat sugar cookies and I'm trying to lose weight. icon_twisted.gif
I mostly do stuff for home so I get to pick what I do and the kids at school beg for my cookies.

Just started offering both and enjoy both parts. porblem with cakes, they are needed mostly on weekends and that cuts into family time. Cookies I can make a couple of days ahead to dry them, so I have something to do in the beginning of the week

I sell both from my home based business. I am getting to where I rather do the cookies. People flip when I tell them the price of a cake, but they will pay $72 for 24 decorated cookies. Go figure!

I do both but rather do cakes, I think cookies are more work, make dough,roll, bake,cool, make icing, decorate then wrap, all that rolling of the dough!! I like cakes better

i do both and plan to do both when i get my storefront also. in my area cookies will be a daily thing for the storefront where cakes will probably be more of a weekend need and a few during the week. i would also like to get into pies but that's going to be awhile since i've only done a few in my lifetime lol

I do only cakes, except for 3 times a year when all my students participate in cookie day. I make 12 dozen sugar cookies, flood them with RI, and then the kids decorate them. Each takes home thier own decorated cookies. Three times a year is more than enough of cookies for me. Give me cakes any time.

I do both also but definitely would rather do cookies. The cookies are so much fun to do. I am still fairly new to baking but love to try new things.

Yup, I do both. And I like to do both - I love the nitpicky small work on cookies, and I like to decorate cakes.

I'm toying with 'hand painted' cookies now. It's like the kitchen is my personal playground. icon_biggrin.gif

I do cookies also when it I get in the mood I think they are un but i would only do them for my kids I don't know anyone who would pay me $1 per inch maybe because they are not that good, but I would also not do them or anything less than...

I do a little bit of everything...have not done a real wedding cake yet, but someday I hope.

I do cookies, cupcakes, cakes (special occasion/event), cheesecakes, tortes, pies, trifles...basically any sort of gourmet pastry/dessert, I'll try my hand at it. icon_biggrin.gif

I do cakes, cookies and cupcakes, but my favorite is cookies. I've just started doing them and have found my new passion. So many more options w/ cookies.
