“Every Christmas, I looked forward to the tradition of decorating those old fashion looking sugar cookies with my mom. Eventually, I would bake up some of my own and decorate them in a whimsical manner and give them to friends and family. Later, I developed a desire to learn
more about the art of sugar cookie decorating. Through a variety of classes, both in-person and on-line, practicing, studying, reading,
watching videos, and searching endless cookie photos, blogs, and websites, I suddenly found that I was really into this cookie thing.
Cookie decorating provides for me a creative outlet and allows me to decompress after a busy week of teaching. Designing
different cookies and displays in order to meet customers’ ideas that they have in their minds and presenting to them
their idea in real life is immensely satisfying. It motivates me to continue to better my craft in order to spread
this sweet happiness to more and more people.”- Terri Mickels
