How do I Request cookies?

Please use the "Quote Request" button in the upper right-hand corner of this website.    If there are photos you'd like to send, you can email me at playingwithdough@gmail.com,  This will provide me what I need to provide you a quote.  Unless my schedule is full, I'll  hold a spot in my calendar for you for 24 hours, to allow you time to send the deposit. Once I receive the deposit, I will send you a confirmation.  Note that I am frequently booked out 8 weeks or more so please place your order early :).

Do you DO parties or Classes?

Yes!   Discover your inner cookie artist by hosting a cookie decorating party or class at your home or venue!   An event that is sure to be memorable for children ages  8 and over, as well as adults!    Minimally 2 weeks notice is needed.    Please click on the link for more info!

Do you decorate on anything besides sugar cookies?

Although Vanilla is the most popular, I offer Chocolate sugar cookies, Gluten Free vanilla, Orange Cardamon Spice, Shortbread and Cookies & Cream, and seasonally Pumpkin Spice and Gingerbread. Some flavors are a little extra due to ingredient cost, so see the Quote Request form for details.

I also make several chocolate dipped treats to coordinate with your cookies!

Coordinating cupcakes and mini-cupcakes are also available! The flavor choices are the same as Cake Pops. Buttercream frosting color coordinates with the cookies with sprinkle decoration. If you’d like a more fancy decoration, it is custom quote. $42/dozen for full sized cupcakes and $30/dozen for mini cupcakes.

Can you do other designs?

I love to do new designs!   If you have a photo you'd like to send, or colors and ideas/theme, please let me know and we can discuss.    I no longer offer printed sugar sheet cookies as these icing sheets don't taste as good as regular icing to most people. I also do not do cookies covered in fondant (although I use fondant for small decorations!),

What are your prices for custom cookies?

Custom cookies are priced based upon the amount of detail, the number of colors/consistencies of icing needed, if gold or silver hand-painting is needed, if they need to be custom cut, and the size of the cookie.  

Prices start at $48/dozen for 3-3.5" cookies with a simple design.   Elaborate cookies (for example, Dreamweaver or Las Vegas sign) and character cookies start at $5 each.   Some cutters are larger, so the larger cookie will have a higher price.  Mini cookies (1.5-2") can be added to any order starting at $10 for 6 simple cookies (eg, mini hearts in custom Bridal Set or with Shopkins).     Hand decorated cookies are very labor intensive!

Note that cookies are 1/4" thick, except for cookie pops/cookie bouquets which are 3/8" thick.

How do I pay for the cookies?

For orders $100 and under, I ask for pre-payment in full as a deposit.   For  larger orders, I ask for a 50% deposit.  The balance is due upon receipt of the cookies.     Deposits are not refundable.   

I prefer Venmo (playingwithdough@gmail.com) when possible.   You can use PayPal (playingwithdough@gmail.com, or if you don't have a PayPal account http://PayPal.Me/playingwithdough) or a credit card via Square, however I will need to add on a 4% fee to your price for PayPal or credit cards.   If you are ordering one month or more in advance I also accept checks. 

WHAT are my options to get the cookies?

Delivery charges are based upon distance, at $2/mile from our location near Hillsdale and Meridian in SJ, with a $10 minimum, Delivery is available on weekends or 11am-3pm weekdays.      Alternatively, you are welcome to schedule a pick-up time at our home in Willow Glen. Unfortunately, we are not able to ship however can pack for YOUR shipping! Cookies have been successfully shipped to NY and Texas that I know of!

How are the cookies packaged?  

The cookies come in a window box.   If you'd like cookies in individual cello bags and heat sealed, there is a charge of $3/dozen.   If you'd like all cookies individually wrapped with ribbon for favors, there is an charge of $5/dozen (coordinating ribbon color).    For gifts or favors, I can get individual clear or window boxes to fit your individual cookies in white, kraft brown, or possibly other colors!   I charge you only my cost for these little boxes.
