Condolence Cookies

I have done many cookies for people in the hospital and they loved them.  I gave them happy face bouquets.  I would give them for condolences and I would make them flowers.  Even if they don't eat them, it feels good to share them.  Remember the power of a cookie.

  1. I do I don't know if I explained it well enough, but the cookie bouquets made the very ill happy for two reasons.  It's a happy gift, and it is something they can share.  They would give it to visitors and the nurses.  The giving made them happy and seem to lift the mood.  I'm sure the same thing is true for those dealing with the death of a loved one.  Cookies make you feel good and again they love to share them with people visiting.

Great Question! Yes, I have regular orders for my Bereavement Platter.  White doves that each say peace with 2 red cardinals. This is a very quick platter to make. It makes a wonderful gift. It is very appropriate to be delivered to a home or a bereavement gathering. See attached photo.

Thanks for sharing! I really like the bird theme.

I made a cookie set for my neighbor when his father passed away.  They enjoyed them and had them to serve when family stopped by.  I wrote messages on some cookies, attached fondant dogwood flowers on some, and royal icing cherry blossoms on other.  The messages said "Wishing You Comfort and Peace,"  "Thinking of You," and "Deepest Sympathy."

Thanks for the photo!  The fondant flowers are so pretty.

I'm late to this discussion but I've just recently done 2 different sympathy orders. The first one was for a woman returning to work after her dad passed. I did hearts and flowers, the office gave her a card to go with it. I did the same theme for someone who just got out of the hospital after falling off a ladder.  I also made cookies for someone with stage 4 cancer. He's an author so I put some of his book covers on cookies for him. It's a treasured gift, he won't eat them and I don't blame him!  

Some people thanks the people who visited them due a parent that passed away giving cookies too. You can put black roses or crosses.   I was surprised in my niece funeral when my sister in law family gived  bookmarkers with my niece picture dressed like a princes.   They give also rosaries too.  It felt strange but people said is a trend.

One family took the cookies to the gravesite on the one year anniversary and ate the cookies while telling stories about him. I feel honored to do sets like this!
