Get answers to some of our most frequently asked questions right here!

Do you actually print on your cookies?

YES! Our photo cookie toppers are made from high quality, tasteless icing sheets printed with a small amount of edible ink!  Similar to what you would find on a standard birthday cake. Each edible topper is then placed on a thin layer of fondant and placed on our cookies.

What size are your cookie favors?

Photo cookie favors are 2.5", Net Wt. 1.3oz.  For gift cookies, please see individual product description.

How are your photo cookies packaged?

Each photo cookie favor is individually wrapped in a crystal clear cello bag and sealed to preserve freshness and prominently display your design!  Please inquire for different shapes & sizes, or custom packaging requirements. Cookie gifts are packaged as shown on product detail pages.

How long do your cookies remain fresh?

Our cookies are individually wrapped to retain freshness.  They are best enjoyed within two weeks but have a shelf life of 3-4 weeks. Please keep at room temperature in their original packaging. Please do NOT freeze or refrigerate to prevent condensation on your photo design.

Color Matching

Here’s where it can get tricky. We do our absolute best to match your colors!  However, we use FDA approved edible inks, therefore some colors (particularly red) may not print exact match.  Please also note that computer and phone screen colors differ based upon individual settings.

What flavor are your cookies?

Our soft, shortbread sugar cookies are super decadent, made with real butter, real cream and imported vanilla. Our standard shortbread cookies have a buttery, vanilla taste with a hint of lemon. Unlike other cookie makers, our cookies have just the right amount of sweet, soft and crunch! We also now offer chocolate chip, red velvet, birthday cake and seasonal flavors!
