I've been making more Fathers Day cookies. I had a few orders this week.....but I thought I'd have lots more. For some reason, I thought that the cookie boxes would sell well, but I was wrong. Everyone loved to see them, but most were not interested in buying them.
Maybe I'm charging too much, but it is a LOT of work to put them together beyond making/decorating the cookies, so I won't charge less than $18 for these larger boxes. It's a lesson learned.....just as I learned about bouquets last year.....I should not make them up ahead of time hoping to sell them. I only sell bouquets when they are requested......not when I've made them up ahead. Some things you just have to learn from trial and error, you know? (Do you know anyone that wants FOUR boxed sets of Fathers Day cookies?????)
I pretty much made all the same cookies I did last week, except for a few variations.....so excuse the repeats.
A friend wanted a cookie that said "I love Addy" since her little girl can't pronounce that first "D" yet. :)
My favorite set of all for this 2010 Fathers Day (I know I've already posted last week's version.....but I couldn't resist)......
One order was for a teacup set with "Sister" on the tag cookie. Believe it or not, there were pink decorating bags along side my "manly" colors this week. lol
Boxed sets from this week.....
I leave for the Ukraine TWO weeks from Friday. Oh my! There is so much to do to prepare for the trip.....and SO MANY cookies to make between now and then. I'll do orders for the next two weeks, and then the days right before I leave will be filled with making cookies for our team members and the Ukrainians we will see while there. Can't wait!
