Welcome to Emma's Sweets!

Edible Art. Creativity. Inspiration.

My name is Mary....

Emma is my daughter and was my inspiration to pursue my passion for baking. I have always baked for family and friends, but when my daughter (who was 3 1/2 at the time), showed me some YouTube videos on how to decorate with royal icing, I realized a whole new world existed beyond the realm of my basic banana bread and shortbread cookies. In the summer of 2013, I took the Wilton Cake Decorating Courses at Michael's to learn about fondant and buttercream.  I quickly realized that it was not for me...

I then stumbled into the cookie world and discovered endless possibilities to channel my creativity.  Being a mom of twins, I find that life can get overwhelming.  Releasing my energy into creating beautiful cookies has become therapeutic and very self rewarding.
