How do I Request cookies?

Please use the "Order 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 help me 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 ask for at least one week lead time, as they are all created to order, but I am frequently booked out 2-4 weeks.

Do you DO parties?

Yes!   Discover your inner cookie artist by hosting a cookie decorating party 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 under Cookies for more info!

Do you decorate on anything besides sugar cookies?

I also offer Chocolate sugar cookies, Shortbread, Orange Cardamon Spice, Peanut Butter, Cookies and Cream and seasonally Pumpkin Spice and Gingerbread.  I also offer Funfetti and Mini Chocolate Chip for an additional $1/dozen.    If you'd like other flavors, please let me know, and I'll consider them for the future!

I am also now offering Cake Pops to coordinate with cookies ordered!   Flavors are chocolate, vanilla and Funfetti!    Icing color is coordinated with the cookies, and decorations are either an icing swirl or sprinkles.   Price is $36/dozen.   Gold/silver hand painting or flowers available for an additional fee. 

Can you do other designs?

I love to do new designs and custom cookies!   If you have a photo you'd like to send, or colors and ideas/theme, please let me know and we can discuss.    I also can do printed PHOTO or LOGO cookies (assuming you have permission for the latter).

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.  

Simple cookies (ex - balloons, sunglasses, etc) are $3-5 (for 3"-5" cookies respectively), Detailed cookies (ex Raccoons or Wedding Rings) are $3.50-5.50, Elaborate cookies (for example, Dreamweaver or Las Vegas sign) are $4 and up... the ranges are for the size of cookie (3"-5").   Character cookies start at $5/each.   Mini cookies (1.5-2") can be added to any order for $7.50 for 6 simple cookies (eg, mini hearts in custom Bridal Set).    

How do I pay for the cookies?

For orders under $50, I ask for pre-payment in full.   For orders of $50 or more, I ask for a 50% deposit.  The balance is due upon receipt of the cookies.     

I prefer Venmo (playingwithdough@gmail.com) when possible.   If you prefer to use PayPal (PayPal.Me/playingwithdough) or a credit card, I will need to add on their 3% fee to your price.

Orders less than $50 cancelled with more than 14 days notice are refundable; 14 days or less notice are not. Orders over $50 cancelled with more than 21 days notice are refundable; 21 days or less are not.   If there is any non-refundable expense (ie, I've purchased a stencil etc just for your order), I will let you know with my quote.

WHAT are my options to get the cookies?

For orders over $35, we offer complimentary delivery within the Willow Glen and Cambrian neighborhoods of San Jose, CA (95124 and 95125).  For a nominal fee of $5, we will deliver to surrounding zip codes (95030, 95129, 95008, 95123, 95136, 95050, 95118, 95117, 95128, 95113, 95110, 95126, 95112).  For other areas within the county, delivery is based upon distance, averaging $10.      Alternatively, you are welcome to schedule a pick-up time at our home in Willow Glen. Unfortunately, we are not able to ship.

How are the cookies packaged?  

The cookies come in a window box with a ribbon.   I also offer cookies on a reusable platter for an additional $3.  If you'd like cookies in individual cello bags and heat sealed, there is a charge of $2/dozen.   If you'd like all cookies individually wrapped with ribbon for favors, there is an charge of $4/dozen (coordinating ribbon color).
