Does this sentence imply whether the cookie is going to be transported from one location to another?

It does. With the use of "quo" there is an implicit "to": Where are you carrying it (to)? or (To) where are you carrying it? English used to be able to say this in a single word: whither. :)

I just feel this sentence is awkward. Somehow it needs the "to", but then it would also be awkward. I'd probably ask, "Where are you taking the cookie?"
