COOKIES BY DESIGN Tips & Tricks II

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
I found a thread http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopic-74191-75-days0-orderasc-.html that was started back in 2007 about how they do things. Some people that claim to work there at one time or another posted answers but when it came to the nitty gritty they where vague. I though maybe some one has new info to share icon_rolleyes.gif

It's so ironic that you posted this! I actually just read through that entire thread the other day really hoping to find out the inside dirt but was disappointed not to learn much of anything. icon_cool.gif

As far as learning , there is lots of info in the thread you just got to put it all toguether however it looks like a lot was omitted. Like what type of mixer an operation like that will use what type of oven, cooler , freezer. If someone is comptemplating opening a bussines this is the kind of info that will save you headakes and $$$. Since they being in bussines so long they allready sort most of this out. Of course4 every one asks about the secret recipe and if you start out with NFSC, you are in the right track , I have purchase their cookies and compared them to mine and most of my guinea pigs like mine better (NFSC) of course they had no idea wich was wich. As for the frosting (Icing) im still fighting that one one day it looks great and the next is trash time, but Im sure i will find something adequate eventually. There is lots of people with great ideas and experience in this club more than whilling to help. So dont be shy and spill the beans we are eager to learn. icon_rolleyes.gif

I saw them featured on unwrapped one year and they showed how they ran the dough through a sheeter to get the right thickness..They didn't share any recipes though...The franchisee owners go to a university type school training for a week to learn how to decorate the cookies and speed and such and then return to train their employees.They also showed that coppergifts.com(I think..correct me if I am wrong) supplied them with alot of their cutters which are custom made to them only.As for anything else it didn't divulge..I too would like to learn more like where do they get their containers from to put the cookies in,some recipes like the icing I wouldn't mind having.

These are also specially made for CbyD. I had one and it's stamped that it's trademarked and made for C by D.
