It's no secret I have such a strong sweet tooth. When it comes to planning a special event, delectable desserts are always first on mind! For my recent housewarming party, I ordered cookies from Spoonful of Sugar Cookies and was totally blown away by the detail. You might recall seeing the darling cookies on Instagram.
Q. When did you first know your baking could become a business?
Q. Do you have a favorite cookie design?Katy: That is a tough question considering all the unique requests I get from customers. Right now in the cookie world, plaques are all the rage. There are so many different designs that makers are coming up with. I like using them in different ways, not just for wording.
Q. What's the most interesting batch of cookies you've created?
Katy: I just recently did Harry Potter themed cookies for a first birthday. I love the book series and was looking forward to these all summer. They turned out exactly how I imagined them and they got a lot of traffic on my Facebook page.
Q. How far in advance do people need to place their cookie orders?
Katy: I prefer as soon as you know the date of your event, but at least two weeks ahead is ideal. I have, on slower weeks, been able to accommodate orders the week of. Due to the fact that I work my real job, it is sometimes not possible to do them on short notice. The process of a batch of cookies spans over three days on average - no matter how small. I make everything from scratch and drying time is key to make sure the icing cures.
Q. Do you ship cookies?
Katy: Yes! I have shipped all over the country. While I will admit it makes me nervous every time, they make it safe and sound.
What do you think? Are these these the most impressive cookies you've seen? I am thoroughly impressed with Katy's talent and recommend her to everyone I know. Her work is absolutely stunning!
