When shelter-in-place orders took effect last March, Chef Sam and Nancy Major’s family bakery shop experienced a 90 percent decrease in sales practically overnight. As parents of four small children and an employer of 14 people, it was a devastating time for the Majors.
What happened next would prove to be pivotal to their survival. They reinvented cookie decorating during a pandemic.
With space they had previously leased to expand production, they took what they knew best, the art of baking, and pivoted to a new entrepreneurial dream. They turned to their most popular cookies, the iced shortbreads, and the rest is history.
Now owners of Color My Cookie, they invented an original take on cookie decorating kits. Parents and kids love them!
These paint-your-own tasty cookie sets come iced, with edible watercolors and sprinkles making them the perfect canvas for your creativity. The only thing you’ll enjoy more than seeing your cookies come to life as you paint them is eating them!
Every Color My Cookie set includes:
- Six cookies to decorate
- Edible palette with edible watercolors, icing, sprinkles with edible glitter
- Two paint brushes
- Two cups–one for water, one for sprinkles
- A link to an online cookie decorating tutorial taught by a real pastry chef!
Color My Cookie has a variety of seasonal sets, each becoming more adorable as they are painted. Today featured the “You’re A Gem” cookie decorating set for its Valentine’s Day roundup of craft kits that kids will enjoy.
