making cookies on a stick but not sure - Page 6

post #76 of 91
Ruthi: I've never had it melt the bag. I buy the bags from Wal-Mart or Hobby Lobby or Michaels, never had one melt. Maybe try other bags.
I'm so glad this has been helpful to y'all. I'm always rummaging through CC for help!

Thanks for sharing such a great method!
Just a thought about the melting bags..... What if you were to apply the glue to the stick, rather than directly to the bag. It might have time to cool down just enough that it wouldn't melt the bag????
If anybody tries this, let us know what happens.
Good luck! thumbs_up.gif

Mme_K that is what I do, for me, it is easier to put the glue on the stick. I also put a piece of cardstock, cut just a bit smaller than the bag, into the bag. That way I am sure the bag will not be melted. The cardstock also opens the bag, so when you put the cookie in, you don't have to fuss with the bag to get it open. Don't you just hate it when you have a cookie in one hand, the bag in the other and the bag won't come open ?

Sticking the glue on the stick and then the bag sounds like a wonderful idea. THis glue cools rather quickly I have found and I am sure that if you did that, that way you probably wouldn't have any melted bags. You all are wonderful.

I have never done cookie boquets...but can see the value of this method!
I wonder if glueing down the lenth of the stick would give enough support to avoid using the tape also? Or doesn't it matter???

well, I made some cookie bouquets and tried both methods I had been wanting to try. THe glue on the stick worked best because it only took those few seconds to cool it down before touching to bag and it didn't burn bag through. I also put something in the bag before doing that. then I used the tape over the stick. That was wonderful. The cookies I made were more on the smaller size so it didn't look as good with all of them. The second method I used I think that somebody in my cake club suggested and it was to use melted candy melts on the back of the cookie and put the stick in. that worked really well, but I also needed to put something beyond the cookie to support the stick and hold it in place until the candy could set. So that was time consuming, but both worked great depending on what your cookies were in size. I think that I will use the glue on the stick and tape method with bigger cookies and small cookies I will use candy melt on. Just wanted to let you know how helpful you were. Thanks again.

Just want to give you a heads up on the candy melts. If it is winter or you live somewhere not very hot, they are OK. If it is hot, they will melt in a short time. I live in FL, ask me how I know icon_smile.gif If you are going to attach the stick to the back of the cookie, RI is a safer way to go.

I already went that route. It didnt work for me. We usually have a very hot summer and I know that the candy on the cookies would not work, but I did try the stick on the bag method and it worked pretty good on most of them. So I will just judge the situation and work it from there. This summer was unusually cool for our summers and very pleasant. I don't remember a summer like it. Thanks for the suggestion though. icon_smile.gif

I've always baked my cookies on the stick or on skewers and havn't had any problems. I used the method that I found on this tutorial:

Did you use the dragon fly cutter from the little set that has a spider, ladybug, butterfly, tulip, caterpiller and dragonfly or do you have a bigger dragonfly cutter and where did you get it? That bouquet looks really nice.

I will continue to 'stick' to this method, last week a friend wanted a cookie on a stick so her kid could hold the stick and eat it, baking it in didn't work, so I glued it with RI, and it fell off as he was eating it. So, I myself am lov'n the stick-on-the-bag trick! So glad I could help.

Thanks so much for all the tips ladies. I used the stick on the cookie method last week b/c DH was being a PITA about them being fake lollys if they didn't have the stick IN the cookie. so once he tried it and the cookie broke in half when he ate it he changed his mind. LOL Then he turned to me and said: why do I ever doubt you? hahahaha

I'm so glad I found this thread in the search function! icon_smile.gif I wanted to make a cookie bouquet for my mother and mother-in-law for Mother's Day, but was worried about trying to bake them with the sticks already in. I'm definitely going to try this way! Thank you Shiny! icon_smile.gif

I did it for the first time last week. The hot glue did melt my bags. So I just slid a piece of paper into the bag before I glued the stick on and that prevented it. This is an awesome way to make cookie bouquets!
