I CAN’T FIND EXACTLY WHAT I WANT ON YOUR WEBSITE. CAN YOU MAKE IT?

Of course – we would love to make your dream a reality! Our team specialises in personalised/ custom-made dessert treats, so we are eager to hear your plans and ideas. Just fill out the enquiries form on our website and let us know what you have in mind. Feel free to also attach any photos for inspiration.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE USED IN YOUR COOKIES?

Ingredients will depend on whether your chosen cookies involve fondant icing only, or a combination of fondant and royal icing. See ingredients for both options below. All our cookies come with ingredient stickers either on the cellophane bag of the individual cookie, or on the box of the cookie pack where the pack is intended for a single person.

Fondant Cookie: Flour, baking powder, salt, butter, sugar, egg, vanilla extract.

Royal Icing: Icing sugar, cream of tartar, egg, vanilla extract, food colouring.

Unfortunately we are unable to cater for specific dietary requirements like gluten free or vegan options, as all of our products are made in the same kitchen, therefore we would be unable to guarantee cross contamination of ingredients.

ARE YOUR COOKIES CUSTOM MADE?

As specialist dessert curators, we like to have a close relationship with our customers and design personalised goodies that truly satisfy their desires. That’s why every one of our sugar cookies and bonbonnieres is custom made to order!

IS THERE A MINIMUM OR MAXIMUM ORDER?

You tell us what you need and we’ll make it happen! Our team is open to orders of all sizes, no matter if you are catering for a large-scale event or seeking a solitary gift for a friend.

DO YOU DELIVER INTERSTATE?

Yes, we are happy to announce that we now offer delivery Australia wide. Please click here to see delivery timeframes.

HOW DID THE SWEET BOX COME TO BE?

Our team have been crafting delicious desserts and custom sugar cookies for many years. When the time was right and our expertise had been perfected, we decided to launch The Sweet Box and share our love of cookies with the public. Head to our About Us page to learn more about our history.

WHAT FLAVOUR ARE YOUR COOKIES?

When you’re craving something sweet, our cookies are the perfect solution. They’ll melt in your mouth and leave behind a delicious vanilla flavour that will have everyone asking where they can get some more!

HOW LONG DO YOUR COOKIES LAST?

Our cookies have a shelf life of 8 weeks from when they are made. Factoring in delivery time, this means they will need to be consumed within 6 -7 weeks of you receiving them.

Our cookies are made to order to ensure they are as fresh as possible, therefore please allow 3-6 days for us to process your order, plus delivery time.
