More Cupcake Cookies and shipping thoughts


I love making cupcakes cookies, the possibilities are endless and you can use so many colors.I feel people always tent to go for the pink, but I I have seen many cupcakes cookies using unconventional colors and they are adorable.
I made these cookies for a birthday party, I made 2 sizes, the larger ones were given as cookie favors and the smaller ones were mean to eat at the party.



These other cookies were for a Cupcake Theme Baby Shower in MA. 

Shipping cookies is very stressful, I always pack them so well and I have never had any problems so far. ( crossing fingers here).But as soon as I leave the box in the hands of the carrier I feel already stress.It doesn't matter how much packing peanuts,bubble wrap or air packets I use, I can't be in pease until I hear from my client. If you sell your cookies...  Have this ever happened to you?

Hello Kathia - I don't ship my products, but I can relate to the stress. Last week I agreed to make and deliver a same-day cake! What was I thinking?! When the cake was ready the frosting was the consistancy of pudding, not the cement-like features of chilled buttercream. My daughter came with me for the delivery and was my eyes as I manouvered pot-holes, corners and a bumpy railway track. I was close to hyperventilating when we arrived, but shockingly the cake was fine. I will not do that again!

I can't imagine the stress of waiting for the mailman to come through! Thanks for your beautiful post.

Que pases un buen fin de semana.

YUM! I made over 80 bikini cookies for my sisters wedding in Mexico. I carried those cookies through three airports and customs like they were made of glass and could explode at any second. Also if you would like to try out a shipping style I will be happy to donate myself as a test subject. =)

Your cookies are always so beautiful. Pink and brown work so nicely together. I can imagine shipping cookies is very stressful. I've never mailed anything before but I have been on a number of long bus trips delivering cakes and cupcakes, talk about scary.

Gorgeous little cookies! Shipping is always a worry, especially if the cookies have appendages. Learned a long time ago never to mark a box as Fragile as it is just a magnet for shippers to toss it around like it was a rubber ball. I just pack them up well and make sure that the box of cookies has no movement when shaken back and forth.

I don't sell my cookies, but I do ship them to my kids and grandkids. I just wrap and pack them well with bubble wrap. As far as I know, most of them arrive intact. These cupcake cookies are adorable!

Kudos Kitchen said...

Great looking cupcake cookies. I too remember the stress filled times when I needed to pack anc ship cookies. You should have seen the first order I ever did for a wedding, I packed them in some crazy foam contraptions. It was certainly overkill but they got there safe and sound. I love the bows you use on your bags and the addition of the tag is really, really cute too! Sweetly done.

Hola. Gracias por visitarme!.

Me pediste la receta del "relleno" de mi pastel de piña... te cuento que el bizcocho es de piña y nueces, pero el relleno de nutella. El relleno está buenísimo y el tutorial está aquí http://www.sugarmur.com/2010/09/butterswiss-de-nutella.html.

Espero que te sea de utilidad.

Un besitoooo

I LOVE these cupcake cookies, Kathia! I know what you mean about packing. I just ship to friends and family, but still don't want them broken. I can imagine that I would be a nervous wreck if they were shipped to a paying customer! :)

Maranda said...

Gorgeous! I've never had to ship cookies but I can imagine how stressful it would be!

The cookies look awesome. Luckily, I don't [yet] to have war with the shipping gods!

very cute! I completely understand what you are saying about shipping cookies, though. It's really my least favorite thing...so stressful and I while the majority of the time things arrive fine I have had some breakage.
