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.
