I was actually thinking about this order this morning, wondering how it was coming. Wow, it looks very professional and well done! You definitely should be proud of this work! Excellent job! thumbs_up.gif

My hands hurt just looking at that! I don't think I would have the strength to package them up after piping all that! (I'm also a little jealous of you. They are all so perfect and beautiful...)
When the going gets tough, the tough start baking!

I still don't know how I did it..!! I don't want to do anything like that soon lol
I bake on sunday (regular oven, one sheet at a time).. started decorating while baking.. And I work monday 7h30am to 1am (with a few pause) and then tuesday 6h30am to 12h30am. Slept until 2am and then did the packaging until 7h15... The boxes are individually wrapped in shrink wrap.
My sister was supposed to help me with the ribbon but I was late in the cookies so it wasn't possible.. but she cut all the ribbon and the padding! Glad it's finally over.. now I can look to see what I'm doing for christmas.. lol

I'm definitely going to freeze cookies when I overbook myself in the future!



I have a minimum order of 24 cookies (regular sizes) in the same colors. I don't care about the shapes. I don't freeze cookies after they are baked. Only my cut-out unbaked shapes. I use glace so it doesn't freeze very well..
I charged 28.75/each for a 6.875x5x1.625" box. 11 cookies - 1 large cactus, 2 minis,1 sun, 6 limes (2 differents sizes) and one logo cookie.
Their budget was between 25 and 30 thumbs_up.gif
And the other corporate box (with christmas colors), was 15$/each but the logo cookie was VERY exhaustive to do.. all handcut (for the cookies and the edible image paper)
