Cookie Bouquets: Baked Blooms of Joy!

A cookie a day…keeps sadness away!”

We’re not quite sure who said that, but it was probably someone who loves cookies as much as we do! Cookies sure have come a long way back from the early days when they were used as “cake testers”. Yup, back in the day bakers used cookies or “small cakes” to test the oven with small amounts of cake batter before baking the entire cake- that’s how the concept of a cookie first originated! From back then,  to becoming many things to many people- a favourite dessert, an any time snack, great for on-the-go, chai’s favourite companion; cookies are here, there and loved everywhere! It’s no surprise then that enterprising bakers and lovers of edible bouquets soon came up with the concept of “cookie bouquets”. Cookie bouquets celebrate the coming together of two much loved and popular gifts, flowers and cookies and elevate them to a totally different, way funkier level!

Cookie bouquets are unique, creative and funky bouquets and make for a personalized gifting option

Gift a cookie bouquet and see the ‘cookie bouquet effect’ for yourself! Cookie Bouquet by Con Affetto

The original concept of cookie bouquets is often credited to Gwen Willhite, founder of Cookies By Design. From the first edible arrangements of custom shaped and hand decorated sugar and cinnamon brown sugar cookies on sticks arranged in baskets, cookie bouquets have come a long way. Today, from the baking and design to the decoration, cookie bouquets can be uniquely personalized to the recipient and occasion at hand. Here’s a fun look at how this deliciously delightful concept comes together:

Step 1: Choose your cookie!

Pick a cookie! Which one will it be?

Pick a cookie! Which one will it be?

Wanna go with the classic sugar cookie? Or is the snickerdoodle cookie more your style? Give it a twist with peanut butter cookies? Or chocolate chip cookies for lovers of chocolate? When you’re done with the flavour, pick your shape of choice. Will it be a heart shaped cookie or a balloon shaped one? Or would you rather go for stars, bunnies or tiara shaped cookies? Take your pick- if you can get your head around the dizzy assortment of choices, that is!

Step 2: Style your cookie!

Become a cookie designer for a day! Styling cookies is an art!

Become a cookie designer for a day! Styling cookies is an art!

Choices, choices! Style your cookie with icing, frosting, sprinkles, candy melts, drizzle or dip in chocolate- you can’t go wrong with chocolate & cookies ;)…or just go for a hand painted cookie! After all nothing says “I care” better than a freshly baked, warm from the oven, customized hand decorated cookie.

Step 3: Pick your cookie accessories!

Shopping for cookie accessories has never been more fun ;)

Shopping for cookie accessories has never been more fun ;)

Coz’ when you’re talking cookies, the more the merrier! That’s right, with cookie bouquets you get to accessorize your cookies too. What would you rather pick to accompany your cookies? From chocolate dipped crispy pretzels, melt-in-your-mouth marshmallows to an assortment of candies and chocolates, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Step 4: Put together your cookie bouquet!

Cookie bouquets are unique, creative and funky bouquets and make for a personalized gifting option

Yup, you guessed it right- more choices! Select the most aesthetically pleasing arrangement for your cookie bouquet. From traditional bouquets wrapped in confetti kissed cellophane to boutrays (bouquets+ trays!) to gift baskets to personalized containers; you can personalize your cookie bouquet arrangement whichever way you like.

With their versatility and chic style, cookie bouquets make for the perfect gift for just about anybody. And whether its a new baby announcement; a wedding gift basket, a special anniversary or a just because occasion (yup, it sure IS a legit occasion 😉 ) cookie bouquets make the cut everywhere! So the next time you’re thinking of gifting someone a regular flower bouquet (B.O.R.I.N.G. Besides, what a waste of those pretty blooms!); or searching for a flower and cake delivery option (could you possible be any more BLAH?), think outta the box- think cookie bouquets!

Here are some of our favourite cookie bouquets to give you that added inspiration 😉

Edible Bouquets: What Makes Them Rock!

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet…

Edible bouquets with the Con Affetto tag will make a regular flower bouquet pale in comparison

A rose by any other name…?Not if it’s from a Con Affetto bouquet!

Well, what if Shakespeare were wrong? Impossible, you say? What if we were to tell you about a bouquet created with rich, moist cake…soft as butter and dipped in the finest chocolate with a promise of melting on your lips? We can bet even Shakespeare would be drooling at that! And he sure would agree that a rose with the Con Affetto name is a million times yummier 😉

Edible bouquets bring together the perfect union of gourmet baked products and the alluring good looks of a flower bouquet

Melt in your mouth gourmet bakes inspired by the beauty of flowers; visions of heaven are guaranteed!

Don’t get us wrong, we love flowers just as much as any gal. And which gal wouldn’t love getting a bursting bouquet of gorgeous blooms? But what happens after that initial heady rush? Those very same blooms begin to wilt and fade away, and eventually end up as trash. And that just made us kinda sad. It also made us sit up and think…

What if you could get a bouquet with blooms just as gorgeous, but that wouldn’t need to be trashed? What if they could smell as great, look as gorgeous….and taste divine!

Eureka! And that’s how Con Affetto came to be. The finest creations, inspired by nature and designed to make mortals go weak at the knees! Anyone who’s bitten into one of our sinful delights will tell you it was love at first taste.

Our edible bouquets range from cake pop bouquets, cookie bouquets, cup cake bouquets to cakesickles, cake truffles nd the works

LOVE! At first bite 😉 Dip into our red velvet cake pops bathed in dark chocolate or our classic vanilla petit bites in swathes of milk chocolate

Has to be be, when you marry the sophistication and taste of gourmet baked treats in all their layered, frosted delight with the sheer beauty of flowers and when the union looks something like this!

One of our edible bouquets is the gorgeous and yummy cupcake bouquet

What looks better? Our gorgeous cupcake bouquet or exotic packaging it’s encased in?

Talk about gifting something unique, meaningful and oh-so-delicious! We don’t like to brag but even the most gorgeous bouquet of flowers cannot compete with our soft, moist, rich edible delights that will explode on your taste buds in a burst of decadence.

Do you really need to think again next time you’re looking for, say…maybe an online flower delivery to your special someone? Here are a few more reasons why an edible bouquet beats a regular flower bouquet any day:

No gender discrimination;)

So you Googled the best online flower delivery option and had their finest (and most expensive!) bouquet delivered to your love. That lush bunch of flowers may have HER swooning, but can you say the same for HIM? Last we heard, flowers aren’t really that big a deal with the guys (some of our guy pals even confessed that they think being gifted flowers is kinda embarrassing- not macho enough, no?)! No such problem with our edible bouquets once they unwrap the packaging and start discovering the scrumptious delights that lie within!

One of our edible bouquets is the cookie bouquet with an assortment of cookies, pretzels, marshmallows

Think we’re only about chocolate? Our cookie bouquet brings you a dizzy assortment of vanilla butter cookies, sugar cookies, pretzels and marshmallows ….swooon!

Maintenance…say what?

Remember the last flower bouquet you were gifted? What did you do once you’d finished ooh-ing and aah-ing over it? Trimmed the stems, put it in fresh water and changed the water daily, most likely. Only to see those pretties wilt away and end up in the trash eventually. Edible bouquets? Receive. Ooh and aah! Unwrap. Eat. Bask in the blissful memories…and taste! And say ta ta to maintenance!

Edible bouquets are better than regular flower bouquets in that they require zero maintenance

Drop dead gorgeous and oh so low maintenance!


Just in case we didn’t say it enough;) Our edible bouquets taste like they’ve been concocted by the Gods of Chocolate themselves, right up there in the divine chocolaterie….lip smacking drool-icious! Now you’ll just have to taste one and see for yourself! And if you’re wondering about the variety you’ll get into a tizzy trying to pick just one from our giddy assortment of cookie bouquets, cup cake bouquets, handcrafted cake pops, cake truffles or cakesickles!

Our edible bouquets come in a wide assortment of products and flavours

Cookie bouquets; cup cake bouquets, cake truffles, cakesickles…we’ll have you spoilt for choice!

The perfect gift for just about anyone…

Forget about frantically searching for the best online flower delivery option and then trying to pair it with a cake or maybe chocolates thrown in for good measure. With an edible bouquet you have the perfect package tailored for you: gourmet baked products that look even better than flowers and presented in a way that will make the most gorgeous bouquet pale in comparison. If you’re looking for the perfect gift, look no further!

Edible bouquets look gorgeous and taste even better!

Fall in love with our gorgeous bunches of edible blooms :)

So in case you’re still thinking about a traditional flower bouquet as your go to delivery gift option, think again! Let the flowers bloom we say, and gift an edible bouquet instead!
