Behold, the Birthday Cookie Cake!

Cookie Cakes

Traditional birthday cakes are so 2019. If you’re looking to switch things up this year, look no further than our fresh baked, gourmet cookies! We already told you that Dessert Bars are a unique way to treat your guests, so why not ditch the traditional cake?! Here, we have a “cookie cake” idea that is a sure way to spruce up a kids birthday party! Kids love cookies, so imagine their face when they see mounds of cookies with bright, illuminating candles!

All You Need is Cookies

When we say “Cookie Cake”, we’re not talking about one big cookie with frosting and sprinkles, but rather, stacks of cookies put together to resemble a round cake. Depending on how many guests you’re hosting, you may only need a few dozen, but if you’re expecting a large crowd, we suggest our Box of 144-1oz cookies (also, leftovers never hurt anybody). You can select up to six flavors which is great because your guests will appreciate options! 

We think it’s fun to mix the stacks with different flavors, but you can certainly assemble your cake as you please! One option is keeping the flavors together – for example, one stack of all chocolate chip, one stack of all lemon drop, etc.

Cookies, to-go please!

After the candles have been blown out and the very important wish has been made, let the kids go wild! Okay, maybe not wild, but have them dig in! It will be fun to see which flavor(s) they choose. If you find yourself with leftovers, you can put together goodie bags for the kids to take home!

Christmas is Over…Now What?!

It was a successful holiday season here at Pacific Cookie Company, and we can’t thank our wonderful customers enough! Many of you purchased gift items on our website and sent them to your loved ones across the country. We also had gift items available for pick up at our Pacific Avenue location for local customers. Whether you ordered cookies for a loved one or for yourself, the holiday orders sure kept us busy!

Here is a recap of some of our best selling gift items:

A White Christmas Cookie Tray – This item is unique to our other gifts because we package it with four dozen mini cookies. It was popular among business offices with plenty to share!

Santa’s Nightcap – This was a new gift item for us and we are so thrilled you loved it! We had this box custom designed with a chocolate chip topper! We can’t wait to bring this back next year!

Adorable Santa Pants – Year after year, you guys have cherished this gift item, and we can see why! Cookies and Santa Pants…You really can’t get anything cuter than this!

What are we up to now that Christmas is over? Believe it or not, we will soon be brainstorming ideas for the 2019 holiday season! Of course there are essential upcoming holidays – Valentine’s day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day – but, with Christmas and Cookies, can you name a better pairing?

Holiday Cookie Gifts…Sneak Peek!

With September coming to an end, many are embracing the changing season – the crisp Fall air, the orange and brown leaves, and pumpkin spice everything! One’s biggest worry may be what their Halloween costume is going to be, but for us, Fall has a very different meaning.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

We’ve been brainstorming new gift ideas since Spring and have devoted much time and attention to making our visions come to life. With that comes a ton of creative energy. Let’s just say we’ve flipped through a LOT of ribbon catalogs.

We know, we know…it’s only September, so we won’t dive too much into Holiday lingo quite yet, BUT we’d love to give you a first look of some of our new Holiday gifts! We think you’re going to love them!

Stylish Wishes

Our custom designed cut-out box has been a very popular item for us during the Holidays. This year, we are adding new, fun colors that will compliment the holiday spirit! Our Stylish Wishes Cookie Gift Box holds one dozen of our gourmet cookies and tied with a bow. We think the cut-out of the classic Christmas Tree adds a special touch that the recipient will adore!

Available soon

Santa’s Nightcap

We are especially excited about this cut-out box! We spent quite a bit of time perfecting this design and we are in love with it! We’ve created our own spin on Santa’s Cap with a playful  chocolate chip topper. This box fits one dozen melt-in-your-mouth cookies. All that’s missing is a glass of milk!

Available soon

Home for The Holidays

What we enjoy most about gift giving is being able to customize your gift for the recipient. Our Home for the Holidays Cookie Gift Tower allows you to do just that! You may select the tower color which is available in green, white or red AND select which holiday greeting to be wrapped around. Greetings available are, “Home, Holidays, Hope”, “Season’s Greetings” and “Cookies Make the Holidays Sweeter”. Holds one dozen scrumptious cookies.

Alright, alright we really did dive into that Holiday lingo, but can you blame us?! Cookies and Christmas do go hand in hand. We will have our complete holiday collection online SOON! We hope everyone enjoys Fall! We’ll be recruiting some of Santa’s helpers in the meantime 🙂
