I ran across a link for this woman's website on kitchen collectables and I had to share, her cookies are simply amazing. I would love to know how long she spends on each cookie and what the price is![url]

I used to shop at Nancy's Fancy's in Santa Rosa, California years ago and so did my Mother. It was a great shop loaded with everything needed for cake decorating and sugar art.

I did a Google search and came up with this link.


Hope this helps.

I have never seen that website and I thought I had seen them all! Her cookies are like nothing else I've ever seen. Very original. She takes just plain circle or square cookie cutters and creates little works of art on them. Gosh she's good. I will have to use her for inspiration. I've always thought of myself as creative but when it comes to cookies - sometime I draw a big fat blank!

Those cookies are really impressive. I'm not a cookie person, but had I not gotten into cakes, those cookies might have jumped started me into cookies instead of cakes. Wow! Thank you for sharing the web site.

Thanks so much for sharing! The cookies are outta this world! absolutely gorgeous...much too pretty to bite into. but i must say, are many people willing to pay so much for a cookie? or is it in the big cities?

It says in the press articles that the bakery she used to work for sold her cookies for $1.95-$9.95 each. I don't know if she charges more now she's independent, but I have to agree that all those cookies are just outstanding & beautiful!

Truly amazing - my eyes popped out of my head when I saw her business card cookie!! Not only are her designs totally unique and well executed, but I can't believe how many tiny royal icing details she does and how realistic they look!!

I read the article about her also and I couldn't believe she only charges 1.95 - 9.95 (esp. on the East Coast). My first instincts told me they'd be more like $20 plus a design charge. I guess she's a natural at it - the article said she was an illustrator for 20 years. I am definitely envious - wish I could draw like that. Thank you for sharing the link!!

Thanks everyone! Those of you who work alone know how great it is to get feedback, and I appreciate all the support in this talented group.

For the record, my pricing is different -- higher -- than mentioned in the Washington Post article, which is a bit old now and was written when I worked at a bakery, not for myself.
