Hands down some of the BEST cookies I have ever had! Seller was awesome. Created custom cookies and completed the order on time as promised despite dealing with personal matters. She kept me posted the whole time. Her level of professionalism is much appreciated and unfortunately hard to find these days. The look on my daughter and guests face when they saw the cookies was priceless. Her work is fabulous!! I will def use again.

Perfect in every way - from the on time arrival, the careful packaging, the flawless decorating to the delicious taste! The notecard that was included was just the right touch. I am usually much more practical with gifts and my husband a bit more frugal but neither of us regretted our order for a moment after we received the excited phone call thanking us. I sure this will be just the first of many orders from us. THANK YOU!!

About

Living the dream!

Thank you for visiting Decorated Desserts! I'm Beth and I specialize in completely custom, hand-decorated sugar cookies that are baked and carefully decorated to order so they are absolutely fresh for your event. Each cookie is made from scratch from the best locally-sourced, pure ingredients I can find and nothing is ever frozen.

All my cookies measure 1/2” thick or more after baking and decorating. Cookies rolled out to 1/4” may be perfectly fine for many people, but I personally find that the presentation is not as impressive as a thicker cookie and they tend to be a bit crispy. My thick cookies take twice the amount of dough as a thin one but I feel it’s worth it to deliver a better looking and chewier cookie.

Because I have very high standards for quality and presentation in my work, I give 100% attention to not only each client, but each and every cookie that I work on. As a long-time manager of people and systems, I’ve found that an assembly-line mentality leads to assembly-line output. I accept a limited number of orders each week so that I may give the proper amount of time and care to each client. Custom cookies are not a frugal purchase and my clients deserve nothing but the very best. You will never receive a sloppy, hastily-made cookie from my shop and you can rest assured that your cookies will have the same or even better level of detail you see in the cookie listing.

I am a sole-proprietor and handle every aspect of my business from communications to sourcing ingredients to packaging and shipping the final product so that I may tightly control quality and am 100% accountable for what leaves my commercial cookie kitchen. Because I haven't yet discovered how to clone myself, messages may take up to 24 hours to be answered and I usually dedicate evenings to this task after my children are in bed. :)

Custom orders are always welcome! If there is a particular shape, design or collection you're looking for but you don't see listed in my shop, please contact me. I have made many custom cookie designs and collections that never make it into the shop. Please feel free to check out my Facebook page to see the variety and scope of my work!

Thank you again for taking the time to visit Decorated Desserts and I hope to do business with you!

Payment
I prefer payment via PayPal but will accept money orders or personal checks as well. Payment must be made in full before can I reserve your event date on my calendar.
Shipping
SHIPPING METHOD - COST - SCHEDULE
Because of the thickness and weight of my cookies I ship with USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Service because the weight doesn't matter and shipping costs are a fixed rate. I can generally fit 12-14 cookies in a 'medium' sized box ($12.35 postage) and 24-26 cookies in a 'large' box ($16.85 postage.) I pass along actual shipping costs only and do not add a packaging or handling fee.

Priority Mail generally takes 2-3 days to reach almost all locations in the US from my home state of Tennessee. I schedule baking/decorating/delivery to happen just before your event date and most packages are shipped on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for delivery by Friday of that same week so you have the freshest cookies possible!


PACKAGING
Each cookie will be individually packaged in a food grade cellophane favor bag which is then mechanically heat-sealed closed to keep your cookie fresh and protected from contaminants. Cookies are then wrapped by 2's in a sheet of bubble wrap and placed in the shipping box where your order is then surrounded by packing peanuts. Considerable care is always taken to make sure vulnerable and/or fragile sections of cookies (such as thinner neck areas, wings, beaks, etc) are well protected to avoid breakage.

I no longer ship cookies with raffia ribbon already in place as I've found that the ribbon tends to 'wrinkle' and just isn't as presentable on the dessert table as it should be. If favor packaging is requested I will gladly include an extra cello cookie bag and pre-cut ribbon for just .10/cookie.


DAMAGE
I take great care in preparing cookies for delivery but please understand that once the package leaves my hands it is no longer under my direct control and I cannot be responsible for delivery delays or broken cookies that result from extraordinarily rough treatment of the package by the carrier. I've shipped tons of cookies and have yet to have a singe cookie arrive broken. I normally include an extra cookie or two with each order just in case but this isn't a guarantee. If you do receive damaged cookies please let me know ASAP and I will issue a refund for the broken product as I want all my clients to be 100% happy with their order.

Local customers are always welcome to pick up orders at my commercial cookie kitchen to save on shipping costs!
Additional policies and FAQs
SCHEDULING
Please be sure to check for booked dates in the shop announcement before placing your order. Overbooked orders will be refunded as I do plan and schedule my kitchen time very carefully to make sure I give each and every order the proper amount of attention so they meet my high standard of appearance and taste. :)

I prefer a 2 week lead time on orders but could possibly accommodate last minute requests depending on my production calendar. Because all orders are made fresh from scratch - never frozen! - an absolute minimum of 72 hours plus delivery time is required for any order.


CUSTOM REQUESTS
I *love* to work on custom orders/colors. If there is a design that you don’t see in my shop just let me know and we'll make it happen!

MY KITCHEN
I have the pleasure of working in a completely separate, 250sq/ft commercial cookie kitchen located in my home. Children, guests and animals are not permitted in my cookie kitchen at any time nor am I cooking my family's meals on the same counter that your cookie order may be drying on. :) While my kitchen is not certified nut free, I do not store, transport or use peanuts or tree nuts in my cookie kitchen or any of my dedicated cookie equipment.
