Tips To Get the Most Out of the Examples

  • Substitute as needed. 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. Change it to “Thank you for the cookies” in your message.
    • Also, other desserts are popular, such as cupcakes, lemon bars, sheet cakes, cupcakes, lemon bars, and sheet cakes and other baked goods. Please feel free to substitute words in the examples as needed.
    • If the treats were received for a holiday, birthday, or another occasion, you could add the word for the event before the treat type—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.
  • Be detailed. 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! A good compliment for a cake or other baked goods can include descriptions. Compliments of the baker’s skill are also great. These compliments can be added to your thank you note.
    • The cake was moist and tasty.
    • The cookie was perfectly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
    • You make the best pies! The fruit in the pie tasted so fresh.
    • Best tasting cake [pie/cookies/lemon bars/etc.] ever!
    • The texture of the cake was fantastic. It felt so smooth, and I enjoyed every bite.
    • The cake was beautiful! I can only imagine how much time you spent designing it.
    • The cake was delicious. (or choose a synonym for delicious).
  • Say thank you when you don’t like it. If you didn’t like the cake, cookie, pie, or other baked goods, you could still thank the person for thinking of you and their effort.
  • Say thanks for sharing. If the person shared the recipe with you, you can also thank them for sharing the recipe.
