Sweet treats, such as cookies, cake, or pie, can be fun to enjoy at a party or receive as a gift.
This post provides sample wording if you want to thank someone for cake, cookies, or pie. There is a separate post dedicated to thanking someone for the chocolate.
If you want to send a handwritten thank-you note, you can review the complete structure of thank-you notecard here. The examples are the center section of a note. Or you could use them in a text message or another way of sharing your gratitude with someone.
The example notes are split into sections for cake, cookies, and pie. For donuts, read this post.
Tips to get the most out of the examples
- The words cake, cookies, or pie can be substituted in most of the examples. For example, if you see a “thank you for the cake” note that you like, but wish it was for cookies. Simply change it to “thank you for the cookies” in your note.
- Also, many types of other desserts are popular, such as cupcakes, lemon bars, and sheet cakes. Please feel free to substitute words in the examples as needed.
- If the treats were received for a holiday or other occasion, you could add the word for the event before the type of treat—for example, Christmas Cookies, Mother’s Day apple pie, etc. Or add “for my birthday” following cookies (ex. Thank you for the yummy cookies for my birthday).
- You can also remove an occasion from an example. So, if an example that inspires you has Christmas cookies in it, but the cookies were not for Christmas, remove the word Christmas.
- Your note will be better if you include specific details. What type of cake or cookies? How did it make you feel to receive it?
- Compliments are good! However, if you didn’t like the cake, cookie, or pie, you can still thank the person for thinking of you and their effort.
