I accidentally stumbled into a cooking decorating career fifteen years ago when I walked into a just-opened cookie shop. I spent the next decade in that shop decorating cookies for a living while earning Masters degrees in Literature and Liberal Arts. I'll turn any dessert into edible art, but I'm especially fond of decorated cookies, painted marshmallows and sweets on sticks. My first book, Cookie Sensations, was published in 2007. My second book, Sugarlicious: 50 Cute and Clever Treats for Every Occasion, was published in early 2012. I writes the blog, The Decorated Cookie (www.thedecoratedcookie.com), and I'm the Edible Crafts editor for CraftGossip.com.
