With edible paper, printed with edible ink, personalized cookies are a snap. I have not one, but two printers that will scan an image -a photo, logo, any image – and print it out in any size up to 8.5 x 14″. The edible paper is really an icing sheet, made of sugar. It’s an actual layer of icing that bonds with the icing on the cake. It can be applies to all varieties of cupcakes, cookies, chocolate, blown sugar, fondant, etc. The ink is a special formula of food coloring, modified to held their coloring on the icing sheets. (There is even a Kosher option) I thought I would use this fun technology mostly for cakes, but really, the cookies are very, very popular.
I have made them for all of the members of my BNI chapter, and for inclusion in gift baskets. The cookies are a Greek cookie, Koulourakia which is a butter cookie which is a perfect blend of taste with the butter cream icing that is iced on top! YaYa Yummy!
Here was a note I got recently from a BNI colleague, after she received a logo’d cookie for her residential insurance company:-
“I hope this is not to short notice BUT if it is PLEASE tell me ~ it will not bother me at all. Next Sunday the 17th at my church we are having our back to school blessing and all the Sunday School teachers are getting together as well to do a meet and greet and little welcome to new Sunday School students, etc… would you be able to make me 40 cookies with my church’s logo on it for the kids? I would need them by Saturday 8/16.”
Not too much to ask. We did them and they were sooo cute! Delighted Client, Delighted Baker and some really happy little people!!
