The joy and hope that come from seeing a loving couple who are about to share their lives together deserves a special treat—cookies, of course. Wedding showers are the perfect place to show off your baking skills with these special wedding themes and shapes.

 

Dresses

Shopping for a wedding gown is something every woman dreams of. Whether the bride-to-be has already found the dress of her dreams or she’s still on the hunt, she’ll appreciate these dress shaped cookies. To make it interactive, have guests decorate the cookies with their own perfect gown idea.

 

Engagement Rings

Popping the question just doesn’t have the same effect if you’re not holding a ring. You can celebrate the happy couple’s engagement with a ring of your own—a diamond ring-shaped cookie, that is. These sweet treats are a big hit.

 

Hearts

Wedding showers are all about the love which means heart-shaped cookies suit the theme perfectly. Use a fine tipped piping bag to write love notes or the couple’s initials. Add roses or lace patterns for a fancy, yet delicate touch. You can even use the heart shape to make dress and tuxedo cookies.

 

Groom Cookies

Wedding showers aren’t always about the bride. More and more couples are joining forces at these parties to celebrate together with friends and family. Since most people will cater to the bride, bring cookies with a theme personal to the groom instead. Whether it’s football, camping, race cars, or golf, every husband-to-be has a hobby you can celebrate in cookie form.

 

Cakes

Cookies that look like cakes. I know it sounds wild, but there are some cute ways to do this. An easy flat version is to get a wedding cake shaped cookie cutter and decorate with every detail of the full sized thing. You can also take your cake-cookies 3D by stacking round cookies of different sizes. Use icing to cement them together and you now have a three-tiered cookie masterpiece.

 

Bringing homemade gifts is very thoughtful and appreciated, but if you think you’d rather leave this one to the pros, that’s fine too. Our cookies inspire nothing but love with decorated heart-shaped variety boxes and full bouquets of long-stemmed cookie-roses. With dozens of love-themed options, you’ll find the perfect cookie for your next wedding shower.

Let’s face it, cookies are already delicious. So how do you improve on something that everyone loves? You add something to dunk it in of course!

 

Icing

Most people would think icing should be spread on top of the cookie, but why not be a rebel and dunk your cookies in it instead? Buttercream and cream cheese icings are gooey and sweet, perfect for dipping anything from a simple sugar cookie to peanut butter, chocolate chip, and beyond. While royal icing is fantastic for cookie decoration, it isn’t the best for cookie dunking because it hardens as it cools.

 

Chocolate

Whether it’s a simple shortbread or a double dark chocolate chunk, any cookie can be improved with chocolate. You don’t have to go out and buy a chocolate fountain just to enjoy a midnight snack this way. Use chocolate chips (milk, white, or dark chocolate are all great options!) melted on a double boiler to achieve a smooth texture. Dipping chocolate will need to be warm to keep from hardening so you may have to zap your chocolate in the microwave a few times throughout your snack time. If that sounds like too much work, switch it up for a cup of hot cocoa instead.

 

Coffee

Many people just can’t get through the day without their cup-of-joe. Make your mornings even better by adding cookies! Varieties such as shortbread and biscotti make for perfect dunking. Use flavored coffees to match or compliment the cookie you’re dipping. Coffees with notes of caramel pair nicely with chocolate chip while hazelnut flavors go well with snickerdoodles. You should never hesitate to add a cookie to your morning coffee. After all, eating an oatmeal cookie is pretty much the same as eating actual oatmeal, right?

 

Ice Cream

You may have a difficult time actually “dipping” your cookies in ice cream, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. You probably don’t have a soft-serve machine at home (if you do, can you invite us over?!), so let the ice cream sit on the counter for a few minutes to soften up. Gelato is denser than typical ice cream, but it’s meant to be eaten at warmer temperatures so it melts as it hits your tongue, making it a good cookie dipping option. For a really easy ice cream dipping experience, make a milkshake!

 

Milk

Of course, we couldn’t leave out the age-old favorite—milk. Cookies and milk go together like peanut butter and jelly, Bonnie and Clyde, Ohio State and football. One just doesn’t seem complete without the other. Luckily, any cookie is good for dunking in milk, so there’s no need to limit yourself! Crunchier cookies will hold together better when dunked, but softer cookies seem to soak up more liquid. Not only are you getting a delicious combo, but you’ll also be getting in your daily dose of calcium.

 

However you decide to enjoy your cookies, there is one requirement for any dunking choice—cookies! Hop on over to our shop page and pick out your favorites today then head to the store for your beverage of choice. Enjoying cookies couldn’t be easier with so many delicious dunking options.

 

The passing of a loved one, friend, or acquaintance is never easy to bear. It can be difficult to know how to appropriately give condolences to the family as traditions vary widely by culture and religion. In the Jewish faith, the immediate family of the deceased will mourn for a seven-day period called a Shiva. This is a time for friends to offer comfort and support for the family either in person or by sending gifts.

     While sitting shiva, relatives will not leave the house and are not allowed to cook or attend other daily duties. It is the job of the community to support the family so they may concentrate on remembering and celebrating their loved one. For this reason, it is customary that guests attending the shiva bring food for the grieving family in lieu of flowers.

     Sending or bringing a basket or platter as condolences is both traditional and thoughtful. Baskets containing baked goods, cookies, dried fruit, nuts, and chocolate can bring a bit of comfort and joy to an otherwise sad occasion. Shiva trays or platters may have fish, salads, and fruit to provide nourishment to mourners. Be sure to inquire ahead of time whether the family is only accepting kosher foods. Making donations to a designated synagogue or charity is also a good way of showing sympathy.

Cookies, brownies, pretzels, and other treats comfort people in times of sorrow. Here are some good options for shiva baskets:

Classic Gourmet Gift Tray – This basket offers a wide variety of treats from cookies to caramel corn to roasted peanuts and even hot chocolate mix; a good option for a family of diverse tastes.

Deluxe Bakery  Basket – Alongside the 40 cookies and brownies gracing this tray comes two loaves of pound cake, offering a sweet treat for breakfast.

Bakery Bites Basket – Inside of a round wicker basket sit 54 perfectly bite-sized cookies and brownies; a good option for kid-sized treats.

Sympathy Cookie Bouquet – Instead of flowers, send a sympathy bouquet of cookies. Simple and delicious, mourners will appreciate your kindness.

Grand Bakery Sampler – This basket features 80 of our most delicious and cheerful cookies, brownies, and loaves; the perfect option for large groups.

Black and White Cookie Tower – As the name says, this tower of black and white boxes contains nothing but cookies in 14 different varieties. A gift as elegant as it is comforting.

Baby showers are a time to celebrate the miracle of life with the parents-to-be. Show them how excited you are for their precious little one to arrive by creating these adorable baby-themed cookies.

 

Onesies

Decorating onesies is a sacred activity of baby shower rituals. It’s creative and interactive; it lets guests show their personalities; it’s very practical for the mother-to-be. For a more delicious version of this game, try decorating onesie-shaped cookies instead.

 

Baby Gear

It isn’t just kids who enjoy getting new toys; parents-to-be love them too. Put a spin on classic gifts by bringing toy and accessory shaped cookies. Alphabet blocks, pacifiers, bibs, rattles, and baby bottles are all popular and cute shapes to decorate and eat.

 

Animals

Do you remember how much you loved your first stuffed animal? Guests will be sure to feel the same love for your animal shaped cookies. Jungle beasts, ocean dwellers, and woodland creatures in fun cartoon themes are perfect to add a little playfulness to any baby shower dessert table.

 

Pink and Blue

You can’t go wrong with a baby shower cookie if you color it blue or pink. For parties with a big gender reveal, bring cookies of both colors. Before the couple reveals what they’re having, tell everyone to grab a cookie of the color they guess. It’s a good way to make sure you aren’t taking home leftovers.

 

Babies

It’s a baby shower, so making cookies shaped like babies makes perfect sense. Bring decorated baby faces or opt for adorable foot shaped cookies. Check your local craft store for a variety of baby-themed cookie cutter shapes.

 

If you know that your best efforts at these cookies may result in a social media post with the ironic hashtag #nailedit, you can order the perfect cookie box with us. Try the Block Tower; it arrives in decorative boxes to be reused for storage in the nursery and includes a small teddy bear for the soon-to-be-newborn. Or make an impression with the Footprint Cookie Box which comes in multiple sizes and offers up to 11 different cookies. No matter what you choose, there’s no better way to celebrate a new life than with cookies.

 

It’s not easy being green—especially for a cookie on St. Patrick’s Day. There are so many ways to flavor and decorate your cookies for this green-hued holiday, we can’t even list them all! But here’s a few of our favorites.

 

Shamrocks

You can’t have an Irish holiday without the iconic shamrock. Cover shamrock-shaped sugar cookies in gooey icing or pipe on a masterpiece with different shades of green. There are plenty of ways to decorate or you can use some of the ideas below to make your shamrock cookie dough green without food coloring.

 

Pot of Gold

Finding the treasure at the end of the rainbow is difficult, but making a pot of gold for yourself is easy when it’s a cookie. Shape, bake and decorate with green icing and gold sprinkles (yellow works too!). Make your cookies 3-D by creating dark chocolate cookie balls and drizzling them with caramel.

 

Chocolate Chip

You can go about a St. Patrick’s Day chocolate chip cookie three different ways. 1) Make the dough green and use regular chocolate chips. 2) Leave the dough natural and use green chocolate chips. 3) Color your dough green and use green chocolate chips! No matter how you do it, you’ll have the most festive cookies on the block.

 

M&M

These little candies are useful for a variety of baking needs, but our favorite is when we stick them into our cookie dough, of course! Only the green M&Ms—it is St. Patty’s Day. Spell out letters or make designs with your M&Ms. Bake a big batch to share with the kids or take to the office. You can’t go wrong with a custom styled cookie!

 

Mint

Mint is a flavor that compliments so many different cookies. Wrap a green mint in a dark chocolate dough and bake. When you bite into it, there’s a fun green surprise in the middle. Add a few drops of spearmint extract to your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and you’ve suddenly got mint chocolate chip cookies.

 

Matcha

Tea has long been used as a flavoring for cookies and other baked goods. Its strong aromas and dough-coloring capabilities make it a perfect flavoring to create naturally green cookies. Finding just the right amount of matcha for your recipe is tricky so you may have to make several batches. Don’t worry, I’m sure your family won’t mind eating the rejected ones. They are still cookies, after all.

 

Pistachio

If tea isn’t your favorite, try pistachio. As they say, you can’t have just one…pistachio cookie, that is! Although we’re used to seeing bright green, pistachios won’t color your cookies this way on their own. Add a couple drops of green coloring to your dough or cover in bright green sprinkles to get the St. Patrick’s Day effect.

 

All-Natural Food Coloring

If you prefer your St. Patrick’s Day to be a little more authentic, try going for naturally made food dyes. You can make your own with recipes for both fruit and vegetable-based colors. There are also several brands that sell pre-made natural food coloring in your local stores or online.

 

Any of these cookies will make your tastebuds green with envy (and with icing). Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day the way you celebrate every other holiday—with cookies!
