questions & answers
Custom desserts, specifically cookies, are a labor of love and take time! Please remember that I am a single baker who does all design, baking, decorating, packaging, and admin, therefore a special creation from Yellow Tulip Bakery will cost more than a few dozen cookies or a sheet cake from the grocery store.
How much do custom cookies cost?
Cookie pricing is determined by lots of different factors including complexity of the design (time to make each cookie), size of the cookie itself (2, 3, 4 inch), additional embellishments (text/words, jewels, hand painting, edible lace, glitter/sprinkles), and packaging (sealed in bags, ribbon, boxes, etc).
Cookie prices start at $3.50/piece for 3-inch basic designs (one or two colors with minimal details) with a two dozen minimum. Complex designs, details, embellishments, and extra large cookie shapes increase the time and supply cost for each cookie which will increase the per-cookie price. All cookies are individually heat sealed in a bag and fresh for up to two weeks, or frozen for up to three months.
If you have an event coming up, I will gladly work with you to make a combination of elaborate or simple cookies to match your budget and theme!
What cookie flavors do you make?
I offer several flavors and can take special requests as well. The best sellers are my Vanilla Butter Cookies which are a cross between a shortbread and sugar cookie, and my Dark Chocolate Cookies which have a rich chocolate flavor without being too sweet.
How far in advance should I place my order?
I request 2 weeks notice for cookies under 2 dozen and 3 weeks for larger cookie orders. Please note: Orders for large events and weddings must be scheduled at least 1 month in advance to ensure a spot on my calendar.
Can you make cookies from a picture I saw online?
I --will not-- duplicate someone else's cookie designs as those belong to the artist who spent time and effort creating them. I would be more than happy to create a cookie set *inspired* by your theme or photos so that your order is custom and unique to you!
Do you deliver?
I can deliver locally within 15 miles of Ashburn, VA. and may be able to accommodate delivery outside that window based on availability. There may be a fee associated with delivery to your home or event.
