Too Fun!

I finished my first batch of cookies today decorated with RI.

Why didn't anyone tell me cookies were so much fun?! It beats the heck out of trying to ice smooth buttercream icon_biggrin.gif How do you store a big batch like this? Do you wrap each one?

Very nice cookies! If you are just storing them for personal consumption, I would put them in a plastic container with sheets of waxed paper or parchment between. If they are for an order or if you are giving them away, how about bagging each and closing the bag with a coordinating ribbon? Or you can do a few cookies in a take-out type container. I bet the stores are starting to carry Valentine's Day containers now. The possibilities are endless. Have fun!

It is addicting, I know I've been cookie crazed lately and looking forward to excuses to try new designs. Yours came out very nice and I might have to borrow some of your ideas thumbs_up.gif

Thanks for all the nice comments and suggestions. Again, I had a blast making them and I'm already thinking about what to do with my next batch icon_lol.gif I may take these to work or just give them to family.

Love the take-out container idea...you could even wrap them individually 1st. Individually wrapped cookies with a patterned ribbon would be very cute!

Very cute, yes! And you did such a wonderful job on the cookies! You'll be surprised how the packaging you're considering will take them to an even higher level. Welcome to the obsession that is cookie decorating!

You are so right about that! Last week, I made snowflake and mitten cookies. They were all appreciated icon_razz.gif , but the ones that I put in individual cellophane bags with silver twist ties got compliments like, "Wow, you could go into business and sell these." So, yes, packaging makes them look really special.

BTW, your cookies already DO look special -- it's hard to believe they're your first batch!

Thanks JGMB! I felt like a little kid coloring. I used to doodle constantly in college...maybe it paid off.

I can't wait to package up a few for Valentine's. I"ll have to check into this doughboard thing too.

How much would you charge for these if they were individually wrapped and tied with ribbon?
post #15 of 27
Generally, the going rate as suggested on CC is to charge $1 per inch for the cookie and the cost of the packaging added to that. You can adjust the price depending on complexityof design and what you think your area will bear.
