Getting A Cookie Bouquet Together

A cookie bouquet can brighten anyone’s day. You can design them with cookies of any shape and size, decorating them with icing, sprinkles and other items that bring a 3D effect to the cookies. Create cookie bouquets for holidays, birthdays and other special occasions. There are ideas that you can come up with based on the gender of the person and a few that are age-related, such as princess crowns and teddy bears for kids or poker cards for someone older.

First, decide whether you’re going to bake cookies yourself or use cookies that you get from the store. If you bake cookies, you need to make them thick enough to stand up on a stick and to hold up to the icing that you put on them. Design the bouquet on paper or with cookie cutters and decorations on the counter before you begin baking. This will help to give an idea of what it might look like when everything is ready to assemble. Gather all of the food coloring and other supplies that you’ll need so that they are ready to use instead of looking for them right before assembling the basket. It’s sometimes best to work with a theme instead of just putting cookies together. Fun themes include items fro the beach, flowers or things that relate to a holiday, like pumpkins or Christmas trees.

Find your container before making your cookies. A basket is an option, but if you want something that will look pretty and that can be used for multiple purposes, consider a vase or a decorative mug. A block of foam should be placed in the bottom of the container as this is where you’ll put the sticks that hold the cookies. You also need a piece of plastic or cellophane that is clear. You can use colored pieces, but make sure you can see through the plastic as you want the person to see the cookies that are in the bouquet. When you bake your cookies, you want to put a lollipop stick or a small craft stick in each one so that there will be enough support when the cookies are standing in the bouquet. Once you decorate the cookies, you can start arranging them in a fun pattern before covering the bouquet to deliver.
