Decorated Sugar Cookies
About Our Sugar Cookies
Our decorated sugar cookies, just like all SugarBot Sweet Shop items, are made from scratch in our St. Charles, MO storefront. Custom sugar cookies are made to order using only high quality ingredients - including real butter and pure vanilla.
Our sugar cookies are rolled, cut, baked, and decorated by hand. Our icings are all mixed and color tinted by hand. We don’t use bag mixes, artificial printed image sheets, or imitation extracts, and we don’t take shortcuts. Each cookie is handled as it’s own individual item, taking the time to make sure they are held to high standards both alone and as a set. The process takes several days from start to finish, with each individual cookie taking anywhere from 6-15 minutes to decorate. Because of the time intensity of the process, we do not offer discounts on decorated sugar cookies.
The price of decorated sugar cookies greatly depends on the size and level of detail of your design. Our cookies are rolled 3/8" thick, and most shapes we work with are 3" x 3" or larger.
Typically, decorated sugar cookies start at $48/dozen, with a minimum order quantity of 12 per shape/design/color combination.
We offer several packaging options for sugar cookies, which include but are not limited to:
Bulk Box Packaging: No Charge
Sugar cookies are stacked in a bakery box. This is a great option if you’re planning to arrange the cookies on a platter at your party or corporate event. (Please note, when cookies are packaged in bulk, cookies may rub together resulting in damage to iced details.)
Gift Box Packaging: $5 per 6 pack box / $7 per 12 pack box
Cookies are individually heat sealed, and packed with tissue in a kraft gift box with clear window, then tied with satin ribbon and a gift tag.
Individual Cello Wrapping with Coordinating Ribbon: $6 per dozen
Individual Heat Sealing: $4 per dozen
Decorated Sugar Cookie FAQ
Do you have decorated sugar cookies readily available in your shop?
We typically have sugar cookies at the shop during the week and weekend closest to holidays (Ground Hog’s Day, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, 4th of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas), but they are in limited supply and tend to sell out quickly. If you’re wanting cookies to celebrate, it’s best to call the shop and pre-order. You can also follow our Facebook & Instagram pages for daily posts of what’s in store.
How big are the decorated sugar cookies?
Most cookies are roughly 3” x 3”, but it does vary depending on the shape.
Do you do custom orders?
They’re our favorite! We can create a custom cookie for any event or celebration.
Do you make cookie bouquets?
We do not offer bouquets featuring cookies on sticks. Because our cookies are baked to perfection, leaving them soft and buttery, they tend to not be contained on the sticks. We can, however, offer decorative gift boxes with clear viewing windows for a nice presentation.
Can you put my logo on a cookie?
Because of the handmade nature of our icing process, some logos are too detailed to maintain on a cookie. Please send us an email with your logo, and we can work together to create a solution if the logo or image is too intricate.
How far in advance should I place my order?
Decorated sugar cookies are very labor intensive, and take a minimum of 2-3 days to produce (the icing alone takes 24 hours to dry!), so we require a minimum of 7 days notice, however we are often booked 2-3 weeks out during most of the year, and 3-4 weeks out during the winter holiday season.
How long do the cookies last?
Decorated sugar cookies are best consumed within 2-3 days of pick up. Heat sealed and cello-bagged cookies can last up to 10 days from pick up. If kept longer, the texture will change and icing may discolor.
How should decorated sugar cookies be stored?
Cookies should be store in airtight containers (or wrapping) at room temperature. Moisture and heat or cold is detrimental to the texture of the cookie and the colorfastness of the icing.
Can sugar cookies be frozen?
Yes, very carefully. To freeze the cookies, wrap them individually in freezer bags (if they aren’t already heat sealed or cello bagged), then place them inside an airtight container with lid, and place them in the freezer. When thawing, remove the container from the freezer and thaw at room temperature. Do not open the container until fully thawed. Opening it while the cookies are cold will produce condensation on the cookies and ruin the icing.
Do you offer wholesale for retailers?
Yes - please contact the shop for details about wholesale.
