I am Kate: a mama, wife + lover of beautiful treats. 

To me, cookies and baking are about honoring seasons, evoking magic + bringing joy to people around you. 

My penchant for appealing treats surfaced early, as young photos of me posing proudly beside my decorated cakes attest. I have (obsessively) pursued cookie decor for over a decade. After a Christmas cookie spree in 2005, I was hooked. I have since spent endless hours honing techniques and had the privilege of honoring countless babes, brides, birthdays, holidays, friendships, milestones + accomplishments with my creations.


My cookie affection + supplies have traveled from the Bay Area to Washington DC, Tel Aviv, and back.

Festoon Baking Co. operates just outside DC, where I now reside with my husband, little daughter + tiny son.
