This has been an idea in my head that I just had to see it through.
How fun would it be to get a box of cookies that were shaped like letters and have a secret message to spell out?
SO FUN, right????
First get cute packaging.
I got these cute candy boxes (3/pack)at Joann's.
Figure out your message and bake your cookies.
I used alphabet cookie cutters but you can also do circle cookies and ice them with letters. I was on a deadline for these, so I rushed and they came out puffier then I would like.
Icing them made them unreadable and I have to say the simplicity of just a sugar cookie appealed to me.
I should have dusted them with coarse sugar so they sparkled with edible bling or something.
Be simple or creative with your message.
Now you need some pretty ribbon or twine.
And make a fun label with hints to figure out the message.
I made this simple label in MS Word and printed it out on cardstock, and punched a hole in the top.
Did you figure these out from my cookie messages above?
The one on the left is "I'm Pregnant" and the one on the right is "Marry Me."
Other message ideas...
It's a Boy! (or girl)
I really don't like your cooking but I really love you.
I spent last night in the pokey.
I dented the car but eat these cookies before you look at it.
Really. I could go on forever.
