How To Customize Cookie Bouquet And Cake Orders Online

January 8, 2013

Ordering a cookie bouquet or a cake online presents an opportunity to send a unique gift for a birthday or other special occasion. Customize the cake orders or cookies to include a personalized message or decorated in favorite colors. Cookie bouquets and cakes are available from a wide range of online bakeries and gourmet gift shops.

Cookie bouquets come in a variety of flavors. Choose from traditional favorites including chocolate chip, shortbread, or sugar cookies. Other flavors include white chocolate chunk with pecans or with macadamia nuts, oatmeal raisin, and peanut butter. Some online cookie bakeries offer sugar-free, gluten-free and fat-free varieties for the health conscious.

Select from shaped cookies based on a theme, such as poinsettias for the holidays or shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day. Shaped cookie bouquets are available in either shortbread or sugar cookie versions. The shaped cookies are frosted and piped with royal icing to match the specified theme. Include a personal message for the recipient as a focal point of the cookie bouquet.

Another option is to order a cookie bouquet with individually wrapped cookies. Cookies are artfully arranged in a basket or vase for gift giving or for display on a buffet table. Order the cookies in a single flavor or as an assortment. Coordinate the cellophane wrapping to the event.

For a different approach, place online cake orders as a special gift idea. Like cookie bouquets, the cakes are available in numerous flavors and styles. Choose traditional favorites, such as chocolate, vanilla, and marble layer cakes; red velvet cake is another popular choice. Layers are filled with chocolate ganache, fruit preserves or butter cream frosting. Hazelnut, peppermint, cappuccino, and coconut are among the range of other flavorings readily available.

Gourmet bakeries and food shops offer a selection of layer cakes covered in fondant to look like wrapped presents or seasonal figures, such as snowmen or pumpkins. They are decorated with edible embellishments and can serve as a centerpiece for a holiday table.

Layer cakes are not the only option for online cake orders. Send a cheesecake or a bundt cake for a change from the standard decorated layer cake. Order mini cakes or cupcakes in an assortment of flavors for a change of pace. During the holiday season Buche de Noel cakes make a welcome gift. Multi-layer tortes present another alternative to a more traditional cake order.

Online cookie bouquets and cake orders ship quickly, usually within 24 to 48 hours after the order is received. For customized orders, be sure to allow additional time. Some online bakeries offer same-day delivery if they have a local storefront. To preserve freshness cake orders are generally shipped frozen.
