Review Of “Color My Cookie” Mini Cookie Kit @ChicExecs A Perfect Mother’s Day or Birthday Gift Idea
I was sent this adorable cookie kit for review, and I thought what better way to test them out, than have my twins paint them? Keep in mind I have impatient 7 year old’s, who have a Fortnite addiction. While my twins painted them very simply, I could see the potential to go all out and make beautiful works of art.
I love that the paints came on one of the cookies, it made for a totally mess free experience. I was really expecting these cookies and the icing to be rock hard, so I was pleasantly surprised when I held it.
I would like to add here, that my boys were more excited to eat the cookie, so I think they painted them as fast as they could, just so they could eat it. I was able to secure one cookie from the pack of 3, and it was delicious!
I spent some time checking out Color My Cookies website today and they have some adorable kits ranging in prices form $22 to $39 a box. The packaging was adorable and perfect for gift giving. I would have no issue gifting this to my mom, my sister, or even just a fellow mommy friend!
The Color My Cookie Story
When we got married, we dreamed of having boys, girls, and a bakery. Catherine and Elisabeth were born in 2010 and 2014 and Peter and Andrew in 2012 and 2017. Along the way we became bakery owners, too.
In March 2020, shelter in place orders were issued in Dallas, Texas, and it became clear very quickly that without parties and gatherings our family’s storefront bakery would not survive Covid-19. With four small children and 14 employees, it was a scary time.
Right away, we started creating DIY cookie decorating kits featuring the iced shortbread cookies that had been the most popular item in our shop for years. Tremendous local support kept our bakery alive through the summer, but by July we had laid off 11 of our 14 employees and closed our storefront. The same week we closed our store, Nancy’s mom passed away from a sudden, non-Covid infection.
In August 2020, we moved from delivering Color My Cookie to local families from the back of our cars to shipping nationwide. Within 8 weeks, we had shipped Color My Cookie to every state in the US! Over the next few months, national recognition from The Food Network, Red Tricycle, The Today Show and Delish.com propelled Color My Cookie to the next level.
By January 2021, we had built our staff back to 10 people, including several of those whom we had laid off. Our former office manager made our hearts burst when he quit his new job to come back to work for us. We were able to promote two incredible leaders in the kitchen to managers. Together, our team has designed, created, and shipped thousands of Color My Cookie kits.
