Packaging Cookies

It's the holidays, and many of us love to bake sweets and share with our friends and family. The question that we all get stuck with is how to package those homemade treats. Here are my top ways to package my gifts.

1) Decorative Tins
2) Gift Bags
3) Bakery Boxes
4) Coffee Cups for my mini cookies wrapped in Cellophane
5) Individual Treat Bags for my kids to take to school
6) Individual treat bags to use as gift tags.
7) Little Baskets
8) Decorative Bowls

Play around with your packaging. You can really come up with some sweet looking gifts, that often cost very little. Try the Dollar Stores for ideas that are easy on the wallet.

Got an idea? Drop my a comment and I'll add yours to my list.

This would be an adorable Gingerbread House for any child or animal lover. This has to be the year I make a Gingerbread House.

Christmas cookies do not always have to be traditional. I like the simple colors and designs of these treats.

These cookies remind me of Christmas growing up. Though these lights were a little dangerous, these cookies are not. Just a sweet reminder of the past.

Mmmm Oreo Turkey Cookies

Now this is adorable. Love the detail and looks so yummy.

Americolor Gel Colors

I have tried several food coloring gels with my icing and have found the Americolor Gels work the best. The colors are true and consistent everytime, expecially when you are trying to get black icing. If you need to make an additional batch of icing, you can almost count on it every time being the same color.

The problem for many of us is that you can't find these colors in your local craft stores. You have to find a great place to buy them on-line. Here is a list of places to look for your colors.

I just love this site. Cakejournal.com is one of the best sites out there. Great tutorials and information about anything cake. It is not the same information I have been reading everywhere else.

Karen's Cookies - I Love This Site!

I have been referencing this site for quite some time, but Karen has been making improvements on the site since I started. This is one of the sites I have gotten great recipes, tutorials, and all kinds of great ideas. Karen really knows her way around a cookie.

Plus, Karen sells cookie and cake supplies. My favorite supplies are cookie cutters and Americolor Gels, and she has a nice selection. The prices are very reasonable too.

Have a question for Karen! She will respond to you with helpful tips also.

Check out this link and see for yourself that Karen's Cookies is one of the best sites on-line. http://www.karenscookies.net/shop/cookie-decorating-tutorials/info_7.html
