I'm Kelsey Mae
I’m a wife to my bestie, and a mom to our 2 incredible boys and newly adopted daughter.
I am a child of the 90s and a creative soul always looking for a voice. I have done just about every form of art: dancing, acting, painting, ceramic, drawing, sewing, and now cookie-ing! As much as I enjoy all forms of art, I feel home with the icing bag in my hand!

How it All Started
So, let’s set the stage: The year is 2019. It’s December and I’m looking at these beautiful cookies on Pinterest trying to figure out how to get them to magically show up at my nephews baby shower. But I guess there is this thing where cookiers can’t ship cookies under the cottage law of their state. (same here in MI if you are asking) So instead of doing what normal people do and looking for a baker in my area, I decided with the generosity of my aunt, to snag some cookie cutters, meringue powder, binge watch YouTube videos, and dive into the world of sugar cookie decorating, it’s now January 2020.
After that initial set with these SUEPER cute elephant cookies that took 8 hours to do 4 of them…I decided, this cookie thing was TOTALLY for me. So I watched more videos, read books, tested recipes, learned about the beauty of WHITE food coloring, a cookie turn table, and a really sharp scribe.
Moving on from there I did everything I could to design creative sets and learn new techniques. My hubby also saw the value in me NOT buying every cookie cutter that came into my vision for a set, and he bought a 3D printer. (Late Summer 2020)
I’d say we learned a lot in 2020. Not only did we figure out how to do life during a pandemic, we also figured out how to run a business together. My hubby and I have worked together in the same environments since the moment we met, it seems only fitting that we continue that way.
Now we have a giant mixer, a dough roller, multiple 3D printers, A Christmas Cookie Challenge 2021 WIN and a business we love. Thank you for your support! We can’t wait to bring you along for the fun!
