Where Sweeter With A Cookie Began

About Simer

Hello! My name is Simer (pronounced just like simmer), and my cookie decorating journey began rather unintentionally.

In 2013 I was planning my son’s first birthday party and decided that looking after a baby while working fulltime in project management planning wasn’t enough, and I needed to teach myself the art of cookie decorating! The first few years of my cookie decorating journey were as a very casual hobby. I would bake a handful of times a year, just for fun. It wasn’t until I was on maternity leave with my youngest that I (with a gentle push by some very encouraging supporters) started my little business and began taking orders. A year later, due to personal circumstances, I left my fulltime job and my cookie business exploded!

In the past 4 years I have learned a lot about cookie decorating. I’m a meticulous researcher and a bit of a perfectionist. I am always looking to further refine my craft. I’ve never taken a cookie decorating class – not for lack of desire, but back when I first entered this world, there were very few options available locally. Now I love to pass my knowledge onto the others, and I offer a variety of cookie decorating workshops, for beginners and intermediate cookie artists, as well as for those who simply want a fun night out with no aspirations to pursue the craft further.

A fun fact about me: Ironically, after years of being around my own cookies, I rarely eat them myself. I have also become “nose blind” to the smell of my own baking!
