A Cookie Delivery that says Thank you from your pet!

I grew up on a farm in Southwestern PA where dogs and cats ran around outside with the horses chickens and pigs. Dogs and Cats did NOT come into the house and though we loved them, they were just another part of the farm animals family. Move ahead to 2011. Now our pets are living right next to us inside the house and yes, they are part of our family. We take photos of them with us, buy their favorite pet treats and include their names on certain gift cards. Although my parents still living on that farm have a Newfoundland dog that they adore and he lives outside with the horses and does not like entering the house.
He's way too large anyways.
 On to the point of this post today. We noticed at our Cookie Bakery that customers were including their pets names on their gift cards, thanking their Vet for excellent care, sending thank you cookies to friends who watched their pet while they were on vacation, etc. We designed this box for those kind of occasions, a PET LOVERS BOX complete with a natural eco-friendly box and matching ribbon with paw prints.

The decorated sugar cookies are cut-outs made with butter, sugar, vanilla, eggs and flour. In other words, people cookies. These cookies are not meant for pets to eat, though I think that may be a fun business to run. We can even personalize one of the cookies with your pet's name!

We are now offering a CAT pet lovers box and a DOG pet lovers box. We also add an assortment of our gourmet cookies too such as chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, oatmeal raisin and peanut butter. Enough cuteness and good taste for anyone to enjoy! We will start shipping these adorable cookie gifts  in early June. I think they could be a unique thank you gift for your pet sitter this summer!

Festive Happy Birthday Cookies & More

Still raining in Pittsburgh with not much sunshine yet for the first week of May, but I'm thinking summer colors! I really like these new colors of lime green, aqua blue, creamsicle orange and fuchsia pink. The Birthday cakes are very popular with our Cookie Gifts as they can be added to any homemade cookie assortment. Add a decorated Birthday Sugar Cookie to a box of freshly baked Chocolate Chip cookies and you've got a winner for any Birthday celebration. I also like the simplicity of the Daisy Cookies for the spring and summer!

We're shipping sweet  Mother's Day Gifts today so I took one more photo of these adorable shoes and purse cookies. The combination of Pink and chocolate brown is nice too. I think we may add some other colors this summer for this line of decorated cookies. Maybe some chocolate brown with turquoise blue? Black is nice for handbags and shoes but not for cookies so I'm not sure about that combination.  The problem with black is a lot of food dye is required for the frosting to attain the perfect black shade. So I think we will stay with more neutral colors. Maybe a tan and blue??
