Over recent months we’ve been working closely with Laura Dockrill to celebrate the launch of her debut picture book, Angry Cookie. Having built a reputation for baking and hand decorating stunning custom cookies for a wide range of corporate events, we were delighted when Laura and the team at Walker Books asked us to help.
The launch event went down a treat and boasted an impressive turnout. Laura did a fantastic reading of the book and there were speeches from the illustrator, Maria Karipidou, and editor, Lizzie Sitton.
To celebrate the book’s launch, our talented team created dozens of Angry Cookie cookies. Each one was freshly baked, decorated with Angry Cookie himself, and beautifully wrapped and tied with an orange ribbon.
Not only did we create a number of complementary cookies to be handed out at the launch event, we also created some to be sent to bloggers in the run up to the big day. Corporate gifts have been used as a promotional tool for decades, but although personalised pens and customised canvas bags can help raise awareness of your brand, delicious bespoke cookies can be even more effective.
The event was shared widely on social media and there was even a cute Snapchat filter of both Angry Cookie and Barbra for people to add to their posts.
One of our favourite memories from the event saw Walker Books’ Marketing Officer, James McParland, don a hilarious Barbra costume. Equipped with his very own pink recorder, he stood outside the venue ready to greet Laura and Maria with his musical talents. He certainly managed to catch the attention of passers by.
This isn’t the first time our cookies have been used to promote an exciting event. We’ve helped countless businesses and creatives to stand out in the crowd and show off their great work with the help of personalised cookies. Whether you’re throwing a launch party or you’re attending a trade fair, we can provide you with an assortment of sweet treats designed especially for you and your objectives.
We’re extremely versatile and have an impressive number of tricks up our sleeve, so whether you want individually wrapped treats that guests can help themselves to or gift boxes that can be sent to current or potential clients, we’ll work our magic.
