As specialty bakers of decorated cookies, we receive many creative requests: some are sentimental, some are humorous, and some are just plain kooky! We figured we’d share some of our more fascinating thoughts, and see if they spark some fresh and fun plans for your upcoming party or get-together.
Ideas for Weddings and Showers with Decorated Cookies
Without a doubt, baby showers, bachelorette parties, and wedding events are some of our more popular events for personalized cookies. With everybody seeking something exclusive for their event, these make for excellent party favors, goodie bag giveaways, as well as place cards!
A single bride-to-be who had a big wedding event placed an order on several of our “Edible Elegance” decorated cookies, and had the tasty dresses personalized to pair with every bridesmaid’s dress and shoes. Tiny paired tuxedos were personalized with the groomsmen’s names, and they made a game from locating their partners while blindfolded based on a guessing game. It was an excellent ice breaker for the wedding party, many of whom weren’t familiar with each other prior to the event.
Another fun idea for customized decorated cookies happened at a baby shower. The soon-to-be-mom ordered many boxes of our “Cuddly Bear” cookie favors. Guests at the event were each provided with some of the cookies, and some tubes of decorator icing. They had a fun game of thinking of possible baby names, writing the names on the cookies and then playing baby bingo!
The game was amusing, the parents got some great ideas for their baby’s new name, and every person enjoyed a tasty treat at the end of the event.
Decorated Cookies for the Team
Sports banquets are a magnificent place for sugar cookies custom-made for every team member. The cookies can be ordered with the team’s color theme, and then all the players can have their name and/or number adorned on the cookie. It’s a fantastic method to recognize the entertainment and teamwork of a proper season. Decorated cookies also make fantastic travel snacks for away games, or as a unique surprise for those long weekend tournaments.
One bowling team we worked with ordered specially personalized cookies shaped like bowling pins, with the name and high score of each league member from that season. They were presented on the last night of bowling, and were a big hit. You can find cookies to personalize for just about any sport, including basketball, baseball, bowling, football, soccer and more.
Whatever the event, decorated cookies are definite to become a hit. They are perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, showers, as get wells, to celebrate a new baby, or express sympathy. They also make a perfect thank you gift for a unique friend, a going away present for a co-worker, or a cheery embrace to the neighborhood. When you order, make sure you choose a cookie company that bakes their goods in the US and ships fresh. Cookies should be baked, packaged and shipped within just a few days, to ensure the best look, fresh taste and richest flavor.
We truly enjoy sharing the joy of specialty cookies. Our recipe is a sweet and delicious sugar cookie, with just the right hint of honey and hints of freshly-ground spices. The icing is created for the right balance of flavor, and adds a beautiful and artistic touch to the presentation. They are more than cookies; they are works of art!
