Common Questions

How do I know if I want PYO or DIY? 

If you're undecided between a paint your own or DIY cookie as the perfect activity, some considerations that may help you decide are where you are hosting your event, your budget, and the age of the participants. 

We find that PYO is less messy and better for our younger guests or in environments where we are trying to keep the mess to a minimum. They also make for great party favors!

Our DIY kits are better suited for our older guests because there is some sharing of the icing and can get a little messy (that's the fun part!). We like to think of these like a "paint and sip" activity for kids that can fill time at a party and create a fun, creative space for all. 

Another consideration you may have is around price. The PYO cookies start at $7/cookie, and DIY starts at $40/1 dozen, so that may inform your choice, you really can't go wrong with either!

Do you have a minimum order? 

For PYO cookies, the minimum is 1 dozen.

There is no minimum on DIY cookies (they come as a dozen, so technically that is the minimum). 


If you are looking for fewer treats, some of our other Treats may be a perfect fit.

How much are they? 

PYO cookies begin at $7.00 per cookie and include cookie in flavor of your choice, along with a paint palette and mini paint brush. (Please note there is a minimum order of a dozen cookies for PYO). 


DIY cookies begin at $40 per dozen and includes one dozen cookies in flavor of your choice, 3 pre-made icing bags, and instructions for decorating and storage. 

How do the cookies come packaged? 

All orders come individually packaged with all supplies required to start decorating. 

Do you deliver or ship? 

We are able to offer shipping or delivery options at this time for an additional fee, or your cookies can be picked up in Nashville, TN!
