I am Kate: a mama, wife + lover of great aesthetics and design. To me, baking is about honoring seasons + evoking magic. And few things illuminate celebrations or spark joy in the people around you

like a delicious, personally crafted, elegantly designed cookie.

My penchant for appealing treats surfaced early, as early photos of me posing proudly beside my decorated cakes attest. After a Christmas cookie spree years ago, I was hooked on this craft and Festoon Baking Co. was eventually born.


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 Cairo.

Festoon Baking Co. currently operates in Cairo, where I now reside with my husband + two little kiddos.
