GIVEAWAY! Sugarlicious sneak peak and totally tubular cookies

Lots more giveaways are coming your way, as promised. Every week I’ll give you a little something leading up to the day that Sugarlicious graces the world with its presence. (Have you pre-ordered yet?)

This time, I’m giving 3 of you a signed copy of the 16-page booklet thingamajig (called a BLAD in the publishing world) that glimpses inside Sugarlicious AND a special treat from my own kitchen. Because I love you all that much.

After spending so much time decorating cookies, presenting them is just as important. I usually package cookies in cello gift bags found at the craft store, and tied with ribbon. But the beauty of cookies is that once dried, they stack, pack and ship well, too.

I found these tube containers at The Container Store. Perfect for round cookies. I cut out a piece of decorative cardstock 9 1/2 inches by 7 inches, wrapped around the tube and secured with double-sided tape. for the cookies, I cut out my cookie dough with a circle cutter just under 2-inches across (these fit snugly, if your cookies spread at all, you may want a slightly smaller circle), and decorated them with my royal icing tinted with Americolor soft gel pastes. I assembled decorating bags with couplers and decorating tips, size “5″ (find tips on supplies here), and piped swirls. Let the cookies dry overnight. Stack sets of five cookies in a large cello favor bag from the craft store, wrap the cello bag tightly around the cookies and tie at the top with ribbon. Slide two stacks of five in the tube.

What about all of you bakers and treat makers? How do you give your cookies as a gift?
THE GIVEAWAY
to enter to win the sneak-peek thingamajig and a tube of ten cookies
(reminder, this isn’t the book itself which is out February 7th,
this is a booklet sneak peek that my awesome publisher made)
leave a comment here before
Thursday, January 5th, midnight, EST 

For a second and third chance to win,
like me on facebook and/or follow me on twitter,
come back and leave another comment(s) telling me.

    I wrap them up in plastic wrap then bubble wrap and put them tightly into a box. They stay all nice and bump free that way. I had never thought of a tube. I just might try that next time. Love you blog btw!

    I gift cookies in a recycled cookie tin. I line the inside (sides and bottom) with parchment paper cut to fit. Then I stack cookies in paper muffin cups. Next I cover over the cookies with a cut to size piece of cardboard and stack more paper muffin cups with cookies on top!

    I pack cookies in a recycled cookie tin. First I wash the tin and dry it really well with a hair dryer (to keep it from rusting). Next I line the side and bottom with parchment paper. The cookies get stacked in muffin cups with a cut to fit piece of cardboard between layers.

    I use my love of making decorated cookies and gingerbread houses for marketing giveaways (my business has nothing to do with food!). At least 4 times a year I give away hundreds of cookie gifts to clients. It's hard to find quick, affordable packaging. I usually use those clear plastic clamshell cookie containers you see in grocery stores with a stretchy gold tie or cellophane bags with ribbon. Right this minute I am making your Snowman Cookie Kits but I couldn't find an afforable source of Chinese take out boxes so I'm using the clamshells. I am so looking forward to using the tubes in the future! You are a constant source of inspiration to me and I am so grateful that you are so willing to share your talent! You are awesome!!! I'll see you on fb & twitter too. I've got your book on my Amazon wish list! You are awesome!

    My favorite way to give cookies are to make those mixes in jars and allow people to bake on their own. However, if I'm really feeling generous, I love those Chinese takeout looking containers.

    I usually wrap my cookies individually – and I love using glassine bags with custom seals. {Thank goodness for Avery Labels! } LOVE the tube idea, but that would mean I'd have to give 10 away at a time – HAHA!!

    So, in line with your "totally tubular" cookie tubes, I thought I would share how I "stack" mine….

    Using a rinsed and dried pringles can, I re-cover the outside with coordinating paper and lid topper. Punch one round hole in either side of the can, and loop some decorative ribbon through the top, securing at both sides (not over the can).
    And….there ya have an instant cookie tote ready to be gifted!
