During this last year, we have been making cookies, but not very many! We have both been working on our Masters degrees (no, not from Cookie College) and while I have just recently finished, Andrew too will be finishing up in a short time. What this means is... we now have some time to make cookies again!
It has been interesting to see the changes in the 'cookie industry' since we first began making decorated favours. Decorated cookies, are not a new invention, but their popularity over the past several years has resulted in a plethora of how-to blogs, home-business websites, and a considerable expansion of the 'cookie aisle' at craft shops like Michaels. It is amazing to me, the wealth of info available now if you decide to make cookie crafting your new hobby (or business!).
As I have said before, cookie-making is not our main gig. We have gone through many years of post-secondary education to further our professional careers, but have been fortunate to have The Steveston Cookie Company to provide us with so many other valuable and interesting experiences in life, and connections with many wonderful people. With our cookies, it really is a passion project... not one that we do out of necessity, but out of our own interest. For that reason, we will always strive to make each order special, and will refrain from blatantly copying designs from Pinterest or elsewhere that we know other cookie artisans have worked so creatively to make.
As always, we thank you so much for your continued interest and support of our business! Your compliments warm our hearts, and we are honoured when you choose our cookies for all of your special events.
