“Cookie Lady” Wins $10,000 in Baking Contest Using Her Mom’s Recipe.

It sounds like a dream come true, and be honest, you might also dream of finding baking success with one of your recipes. From what I can tell though, although I am sure her recipe is out of this world, it seems like her hard work and perseverance played a huge part in that great win.

You see, after her son was born she did not want to return to her job and searched for some way to replace her income. She had always loved baking, so she started watching YouTube videos on how to decorate cookies. She was sure that she could do that so she started baking at home. In the beginning she did swaps in mommy groups to get her name out.

When her husband retired, they decided to open a bakery and make a go of it with cookies. Now she has custom orders, and around the holidays her work days are often over 15 hours (that’s a lot of cookies). For her large custom orders, she is booked months in advance. She does cookies for weddings, baptisms, first communions and more.

In addition to the baking, she is now teaching classes on cookie decoration. She as rented a shop adjacent to her business for her classroom.

So, what are you waiting for, grab your computer and start watching you tube videos. You too might grow a huge following. I believe it is possible and the “Cookie Lady is proof to of that.
