I took a class online, and I was completely hooked. The thing I like about cookies is they’re always different. I like always having new, exciting challenges. That’s what cookies are, right? You can do everything you can do in the art world, you can do with edible art.

I am 54 years old and I am happier than I have ever been in my life because I’m doing what I think I was made to do.

Meet The Baking Artist, Herself
Most of Laura’s work has been driven by her kids. She began homeschooling when her firstborn — diagnosed with severe dyslexia — was young. The two of them used their time to focus not only on the modern classroom curriculum but on the arts including baking together. She wrote a book inspired by him during the height of COVID called “The Boy Who Lost His Colors.”
Located in Versailles, Kentucky Laura bakes and decorates custom sugar cookies for all occasions. She found her love of baking when sitting with her mom at the counter to help bake cookies, cakes and pies as a child.
