making cookies on a stick but not sure - Page 4

post #46 of 91
Thanks Shiney. I never thought to put the foam in over the tissue to hold it in place. I was always sticking it in the back but it was not very sturdy.
cookies45, adding chocolate on sticks is a great idea to add to cookie bouquets. Thanks.

Shiney, I've been catching up on the cookie forum as I had company for a week and ran across your bouquet instructions. You are brilliant, but apparently I'm not icon_confused.gif Further in the post you wrote about sticking "foam"in over the tissue. What type of foam are you talking about? As you can tell, I don't get out much icon_rolleyes.gif TIA!

Pebbles: I use that green styrofoam brand Gentle Grip stuff, usually used for artificial flowers. it's kind of a pain when you cut it to size, but you don't want that hard green stuff from dollar store, it doesn't 'grip' the sticks. Don't get that that stuff for real flowers, it is nasty!

A picture is worth a thousand words - I also had a hard time understanding. Great idea. I'll have to try this.

There is no doubt this is a great way to do it. What I really like about it is when the cookie is opened, it is a cookie, no stick attached, no worry about little kids running, and it is easier for adults too. Thanks Shiney. Here is my St Paddys day bouquet using this method of attaching sticks:

Thanks for looking

Linedancer: Your cookies are GREAT! Thanks for sharing. I'm so glad the method worked for you. I really like the fact that kiddies aren't walking around with a stick, That was actually my first reason for the stick-on-bag method, and found it so much easier to bake, store and decorate without the stick thumbs_up.gif
I've been absent from CC for a while, I've been overloaded with work, and spending a lot of time with my mom who lost her husband a couple of weeks ago (Y'all say a little prayer for her)
I'll have A LOT of CC-catching up to do when I get back to my normal groove!

Shiney, I have been stressing for 2 days over whether I should try to make cookie bouquets - I thought I could do OK decorating the cookies, but the part about the sticks left me stumped... After reading this, I have no doubt that I can do it. Thanks so much for the great post - and the pictures!!

I did it!! icon_smile.gif I made my first bouquet - attached sticks to back of bags (only used packing tape) and it worked like a charm! icon_smile.gif My dollar store had the styrofoam cylinders to put inside the little bucket. Didn't have/want to buy rocks to weight the bottom, so I glued the bucket to the plastic plate in pic. Here's my pic:

Thanks so much for the idea, Shiney! icon_smile.gif

Nice bouquet, djs328 and thanks for your kind words, shiney. So nice of you to share your method.

Shiney, thanks again for the tip - I made my first bouquets yesterday, and taping the sticks to the bag worked like a charm. Here they are! http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1373797.html

Linedancer, did you use a stencil on those cookies in your st. pat's bouquet or are they edible images? Nice job?

All your bouquets are absolutely beautiful guys!

I LOVE this method! I have been doing that as I would get raised spots on my cookies where I Put the stick, or they'd be too flimsy. So now, I cut the chilled dough, carefully turn it over and put the stick on back and push down just slightly and then put a small ball of cookie dough that I smash down around the stick (I usually put the stick up half way). When it bakes you can't tell that you did that and it hasn't changed the shape of my cookie at all. icon_smile.gif

Just an alternative...

Keyshia,

Do you bake the cookies in the oven with the stick side up, or stick side down?
