How to Order.....
O Taste & See cookies are handmade sugar cookies custom decorated with royal icing for every holiday, occasion, and theme.
Please look through the Gallery to get ideas on possible designs. Custom cookies can be designed to match your theme, colors, invitations, decor, anything! If you don't see what you'd like, just ask!
Please be sure to order your cookies early. Our calendar can fill up quickly! Only a set number of orders per week can be accepted. The earlier we get started on finalizing the details, the greater your chance of scoring an opening. Your order is not "placed" until details and payment has been finalized. Your order will not be started on until payment has been received.
Two weeks lead time is usually the very minimum to place an order.
Each cookie order is made over a two to three day period - one day for mixing, cutting, baking. One day for decorating. The third day for additional details (if needed) and dry time (at least 8 hours). Cookies are baked as close to your needed date as possible. Once your cookies are bagged up, they'll stay beautifully fresh for up to two weeks.

Our cookies contain flour, milk (butter), and egg. Though our basic sugar cookies do not contain nuts, they are baked in a kitchen that does use nuts as an ingredient. Some of our ingredients are prepared and packaged using machines that may come into contact with Wheat/Gluten, Eggs, Dairy or Dairy Products, Peanuts, Tree Nuts and Soy.
Storing Decorated Cookies At Home:
Sugar cookies have along shelf life. They stay fresh for up to two weeks when kept in favor bags or an air-tight container at room temperature. Keep them out of direct sunlight. The sun can fade the colors.
Occasionally, people like to freeze individually bagged cookies to give as gifts. Icing can sometimes (not always) take on a slight blotchy appearance (especially darker colors).
If you do decide to freeze: Place individually bagged cookies into a freezer zip bag, then into a plastic air-tight container. Place the container into the freezer.
Defrosting: Remove container from Freezer. Leave it untouched until cookies are room temperature. Do not expose cookies to air while they are cold. Condensation will appear on cold cookies that are not wrapped, ruining the icing.
Please note: The pricing sheets are a general guideline. All cookies don't fit neatly into size categories. Prices depend on both size AND complexity of design/personalization.
