Our Story

In October 2016, I launched Cookies by Kate. After years of refining my decorating skills, I decided it was time to turn my passion into a business. I continued to work at my full-time job as a computer programmer and spent lots of evenings and weekend hours at the shared commercial kitchen where we were licensed baking, decorating, and packaging cookies.

The first year of Cookies by Kate was a huge success! We made thousands of fun cookies for all kinds of events: weddings, baby showers, birthdays, corporate events and so much more.

June of 2018 our family expanded and I gave birth to our beautiful little girl. I took some time away from Cookies by Kate just before and after her birth. The time spent with my little one made me realize how important it was to cherish those moments! In August 2018, I decided that I was no longer going to take on cookie orders.

Now with a little one running around and still maintaining my full-time job, I have decided to focus less on cookie sales and more on time with my friends and family. Instead of taking cookie orders, I exclusively offer cookie decorating classes and parties.

Thankfully, because of judge’s ruling regarding at-home baking in Wisconsin, I was able to continue to scale-back and transition Cookies by Kate to be an at-home baking business as of April 2020. Products are made in a private home not subject to state licensing or inspection.
