Cookie bouquet

So here’s my first attempt at putting together a Cookie Bouquet. I have made cookies and also made cookie-pops for favors, but have never assembled them as a cookie bouquet. I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
A girl friend asked me if I could make one for her as a gift for a new baby, so here’s how it turned out. I used floral Styrofoam for the base and made sure that I used a heavy base, because after researching how to do it online that was one of the issues that was listed over and over as potential problems…too top heavy.
Another issue that I read about was whether or not to insert the sticks before baking or after…in the past I have inserted my cookie sticks directly after baking and they have turned out fine, but on many sites it states specifically to put them in prior, so I tried ti and they came out really great and sturdy, and I believe sturdier than doing it after. I will put them in before baking from now on.
I decided to use wooden skewers for the cookies because I had some that were nice and long, but I soaked them in water so they wouldn’t burn in the oven.
I used a royal icing recipe (with meringue powder) that leaves a more “frosted” look, rather than more of a glaze or fondant that I traditionally use on sugar cookies. I’m not sure which finish I like the look of the best.
Anyway, here’s how it turned out…


Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

    I make cookies bouquets also I bake the stick in the cookies to but use craft or popsicles stick I like them better they are wider I wrap each cookie. This is a good way so you can eat one at a time.the others will still be fresh. Good for older cookie lovers.I don’t frost them don’t want to take away from the cookie it’s self or use a glaze lightly to stick sprinkles or such to them I make all kinds of cookies not just sugar . I like your site you have the best recipes and ideals thanks for all you show us. Qqqqqq
