Pretty Easter Cookie Presentation & Packaging

Share it!   


{Random thoughts…}

I’m loving this burst of spring we’re experiencing… Buds peeking through the ground, the sweet song of birds in the trees, {especially when I head out to the car in the morning}, longer daylight hours and more walks in the forest.

H-banana seems to love baking as much as I do and she had some Sunday morning fun decorating and eating her lemon-vanilla cupcakes this weekend. She makes me smile with the things she says… She wanted to make sure her ‘fairy’ and owls had a cupcake too.

She loves all the Easter cookies I have around the house right now.

We’re not eating them anymore, as I let these dry out since they were made in late January for My Little Jedi’s online magazine, but we’re enjoying them as Easter decorations. If you’d like to make them you could of course serve them right away or use some of these packaging ideas as Easter gifts or centrepieces.

Some of these I’ve shared with you already, but I’d love to share some more pretty & fun Easter cookie ‘presentations’ I came across on the ever inspiring Pinterest.

To first quickly answer some emails I got about these photos in the last post, this lovely purple cake stand is from a charming bakery/florist shop in Toronto, called Flour Studio, where not only do they sell delicious cupakes (decadent peanut butter chocolate was one of my faves…  not going to tell you how many I ate), they sell pretty cake stands & flowers too. The two sisters who operate Flour Studio (one is a baker, one is a florist – how cool is that!), were lovely. If you don’t live in the area I would try phoning them to see if they will ship or help you locate the cake stands closer to you.

The TomKat Studio is the creator of the adorable Easter printables which were perfect as tags on cookies wrapped in cellophane bags… either attached as ‘somebunny loves you’ mini cards, or little messages on the back of each cookie.

If you’ve never bought printables on line before, it’s such an easy way to dress up your sweet treats, especially if you’re not able, or don’t have the time to, make your own pretty tags. It’s as easy as choosing the files you like from on line shops like The TomKat’s here, having them sent to you over email, printing and cutting them out with scissors or a craft punch, such as this circle punch below, and attaching to your package.

I even used them to dress up the tops of the jars below. Thanks to Scarlett O’Neill, btw, the creative talent behind the coming photographs!

The ‘tree’ below, from Pier One Imports, is one of two adorable wire ‘trees’ they have available. The other one is pale green and actually looks somewhat like a real tree, and it definitely was an effort for me not to pick that one up as well. If you end up buying it and trying the same idea out, I’d love to see what you come up with! The nice thing about the white one, is that I’ll be able to use it throughout the year for different cookie themes.

And of course, the classic Easter basket!

On to some pretty Easter cookie presentations I found on Pinterest.

How gorgeous are these vibrant Easter eggs made by witty Georganne, whose blog LilaLoa, is not only an inspiring {cookie} decorating blog, but a place to enjoy a good chuckle. I love how she’s placed these cookies in a bowl of matching rainbow jelly beans!

And these gorgeous spring tulip cookies from the lovely Glory of Glorious Treats. I’m loving the way she’s presented them… so fresh and pretty! Her blog is full of sweets & treats as clever and yummy-looking as these!

I love how the talented Haniela has presented these in-a-basket Easter cookies with blue & white colours, against a complimentary background – not to mention the beautiful, intricate piping! Stunning! You can find more of Haniela’s pretty sweets on her blog, Haniela’s Food and Photography.

There are so many other beautiful cookies, cool cookie presentations and talented ‘cookiers’ out there, I couldn’t possibly share them all, sooo, I’d love if you would share your Easter or spring cookies! Thanks to Georganne of LilaLoa for this ‘Linky Party’ host idea – all you need to do is click the blue frog below, and follow the directions to add your Easter cookie photo and link.

If you happen to be looking for Easter or spring cookie decorating ideas, you can also find lots of inspiration in the current Sweet of the Month contest. I knew I recognized Georganne’s vibrant Easter eggs from somewhere!

Looking forward to seeing your creations!

    Hi Marian, I too have been enjoying the gorgeous Spring weather …it’s funny, I think we must live in the same area. I love your Easter cookies ~ and all of the ways you’ve thought of to display them. My favourite is the wire tree with all of the little mini cookies. Just adorable! You are so talented and your little assistant … well, she’s just sweet!

    @ marian: Actually, I have one set up for CuteEverything, and since you have to have a personal account affiliated with it, I haven’t figured out how to do another FB account for my other blog. So, I’m not quite sure how to handle that. Thanks so much for visiting and your kind words. I appreciate that!

    Your Easter cookies are all so sweet. I especially love the chick’s little feet!

  28. March 28, 2012 at 9:33 am | Permalink

    I JUST keep coming back to look at the cookies in the jar. It is SUCH a great idea. They are beautiful showpieces. Literally. I’m thinking about making them as centerpieces for an upcoming fancy dinner…

    And thank you again for including my egg picture!

    Hi Marian

    I only just discovered your blog this week and have visited very day! Your work is amazing and I am itching for the weekend to arrive so I can don my apron and have a go at creating something delicous, but not as pretty as yours.

    I have a question though that I was hoping you would answer for me; with the royal icing technique, I understand how to get the marble effect, as seen on the Easter egg cookies above, but how would you get a solid colour, for example the eye on the chick above – the black icing hasn’t blended in with the yellow. Would I just use icing of a thicker consistency if i wanted solid lines/patterns?

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Thank you, Kelly

    Thanks @ julie!

    No problem, @ kelly! You let the bottom layer dry and then add the black dot (a tiny bit of pressure on the piping bag to pipe the dot out). I generally use the same consistency icing – you can see how I find the consistency and other videos on my youtube channel, if you like. I hope that helps and hope you have fun decorating! Remember not to be too hard on yourself for the first time – it may take a little bit of practice to get where you want to be. xo

    Your cookies exemplify what mine are lacking, elegance. The chicks and eggs are simple, yet amazing.. elegant. I need to figure out my style and work on developing it. Is ham handed a valid style? LOL… Maybe multiple personalty cookies? haha… anyway love your stuff! Thanks for all the amazing inspiration! Anyway off to make some cookies…

    @ John Snediker: You are too funny! Thank you for your compliment, but I beg to differ about your style – whatever you call it (ham handed hee hee or not), you’ve got pizzazz! Hope you’re having fun making your cookies!

    @ marian:
    Thanks Marian, I am have a blast, truly it is something I love to do, and that it makes friends and family happy receiving them is a bonus! Each time I make them I think they are getting better and better, I just need to find my style. Thanks for the encouragement and instruction, the progress and fun I have had is thanks in no small part to your instruction and Sweetopia!

    Girl, you are amazing!!! All of these are fabulous & how cute is your daughter!

    Loving the spring colors and adorable factor. 🙂 Joined the linky party with the blue frog – great idea and thanks!

    That owl pillow aches to be a cookie.

    I know! I was thinking the SAME thing! My 12-year-old daughter is my “food stylist” sometimes! HAHA!

    Ha ha! You’re so right, @ Jeannie, the owl pillow needs to be a cookie, thank you! =) And thanks for joining the linky party with the blue frog!
