My good friend at work and I have birthdays that are a few weeks apart. Usually, we take each other out to lunch, but this year she stepped it up a notch by ordering decorated cookies. This immediately started a trend. I had two weeks to find cookies for her and have them shipped to the office. With each delivery, we both sampled and gave our opinions. Now we both have a year to find to new companies to try.
Actually, I’ve already found a new company. Luckily I was approached by Cookies by Design to try and review one of their cookies bouquets. Cookies by Design? I haven’t heard about them in years! I remember loving their cookies when I lived in Chicago over 10 years ago. The company I worked for at the time used them constantly, so I made many trips to the shop to get cookies. I would even buy one or two to add to Miles’ Easter basket.
Since I’m in the market for birthday ideas, I chose the Butterfly and Daisy Birthday bouquet. It arrived well packed in a large box and was even wrapped in plastic with a bow.
Each cookie was individually wrapped and firmly placed within the “flower” pot.
They were still just as nicely decorated as I remember. But did they taste any good? Yes! The cookies were very thick, yet tender and had a nice chew. Were they gourmet cookies? No. The taste reminded me of a good old-fashioned birthday cake I used to get as a child but in cookie form. It was very comforting and satisfying. I was going to keep this a secret and wait until next year to surprise my coworker, but I couldn’t wait and shared a cookie with her. The cookie never made it to lunch! I think we both already know what we’re getting each other next year. If you’d like to check out Cookies by Design click here.
