Retired after 48 years in advertising, publishing and mailing industry with a short time as a kindergarten teacher right out of college. My passion is baking desserts, but over the last year have developed a huge passion for cookie decorating. I’m a work in progress and have my first order for 200 St. Patrick’s day cookies. I’m thrilled and have been reading all the great info from so many great cookie makers! I’m blown away with the talent I see.
