do you do cakes AND cookies? - Page 2

post #16 of 35
I love to decorate both .. but when it comes to baking I prefer cookies..

I am not very good at baking cakes..

If I could hire someone to do my baking I would be in seventh heaven !

I've been making cookies for years and started making cakes a few months ago. I actually got inspired to do cakes by seeing all of the beautiful cakes here. You are all so talented! I have alot to learn but I am having so much fun!!!

I'm way more comfortable with and better at cookies! I love doing cakes, though! I just don't have as much opportunity... icon_sad.gif

I've been making both for years. Each has its own set of challenges. When I'm doing cakes, I wonder why the heck I bother doing cookies. When I do cookies, I wonder why I bother doing cakes. LOL. Just nuts I guess.

It all depends on my mood. I really really enjoy decorating cakes, but the clean up seems to be a lot worse for cakes. (ugh!!) However I have started to get a good pattern down for cookies so they don't seem to take me as long (I use to hate doing decorated cookies b/c they took so long)

I really enjoy both, but the cookies are easier on my hands and I have problems with them already (darn bakery job!) But I like what I can do with fondant/gumpaste/buttercream. So ask me everyday and i'll give you a different answer

Me too (see my two websites, listed below). Plus wedding cakes are more profitable for the time it takes.

Fairytale, your cookies are just fabulous. When the kids tell me they need ideas, I put your photo album up on the screen for them to look at. Your skills and talent are amazing!

I do cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and candies. I love to do them all! I like to change it up instead of doing the same thing all of the time. icon_smile.gif

I do both, and like each for different reasons. I love the icing I use for cakes, as it's so easy to work with and tastes divine. The cookies I like because they are so portable, easy to serve, and versatile. (I've fallen in love with cookie bouquets because I get to decorate the pots as well as the cookies, and I love to paint.) But right now, I just want everyone to stop calling wanting things! May is such a busy, busy, month, and I could use a breather.

I do cakes and cookies, getting into molded chocolate and other candies.

I do both as well as pies and cupcakes, but cookies hands down are my all time favorite!

I'm just doing cookies right now. When I have a place to legally do cakes, I would love to do birthday/celebration cakes (scared to death to ever do a wedding cake- would hate to ruin someone's day!), but I've only done cakes for my son's birthdays and need a lot of practice! Until then I'm legal for cakes, will just keep using the family as my guinea pigs. icon_smile.gif

We do cookie and cakes - as well as cupcakes. Up until 1 month ago we did the HUGE chocolate and caramel covered apples and pretzel rods, but the mess wasn't worth it and we are WAY to busy with cakes and cookies.
