Where can I order custom cookies?
Check out my availability calendar first. You can then fill out an order form and I'll contact you shortly to discuss details.
Do you take last minute orders?
Short answer is no. Sugar cookies with royal icing usually take hours to decorate and sometimes up to 24 hours to dry completely before packaging. Some steps of the process simply cannot be rushed. You can always submit a request to see if I have had any cancellations. If I do accept your order, and it is a week or less before the pick up date, there will be a rush fee added to the total cost. If it is that close to your pick up date, I guarantee that I will be staying up very late at least one night to complete your order on time. I'm a one woman show with 4 kids at home, it's crazy here.
Do you make cakes?
No, only sugar cookies at this time.
Do you ship cookies?
Not at this time. Local pickup from Rocklin, CA. Delivery is available in the Rocklin/Roseville/Lincoln area for an additional $20 fee.
What are your cookie ingredients?
Butter, flour, sugar, eggs, baking powder, salt, pure vanilla and almond extracts, meringue powder, powered sugar, and food coloring. All cookies contain milk, egg, and wheat products. Cookies are NOT made in a nut-free or gluten-free kitchen.
How do I store the cookies to keep them fresh?
Sugar cookies will stay fresh for at least two weeks at room temperature, preferably in an airtight container. Keep them out of direct sunlight. If you need to keep them for longer, you can freeze them. My favorite method is to stack the them in a large, air tight freezer container with sheets of wax paper in between each cookie layer. Some color bleed may occur, but it is very rare. In fact, I've only ever heard about it, never experienced it myself. Defrost the frozen cookies in their container until they reach room temperature. Do not open the container until they are completely defrosted to avoid condensation. If you have more questions about this process, I'm happy to help.
How are my cookies packaged?
Two options for standard packaging (no extra charge):
1. Unwrapped cookies in a bakery box. Cookie layers will be separated by wax paper. This is the preferred option if you want your cookies out on a platter or dessert table.
2. Individually bagged cookies. They can be open bags or sealed and trimmed using a heat sealer. This option is best for party favors or handing out cookies on the go.
Any extra ties, tags, ribbons, or embellishments on the box or bags will have an extra fee. We can work out those specific details when we consult about your order.
