If you’re looking for a unique and delicious gift for your next special occasion, look no further than Pam the Baker’s custom-decorated sugar cookies.
Pam Sissons is a lifelong baker whose passion has always been baking bread, muffins, cookies, baklavas, and all sorts of goodies ‘just like Mom used to make.’ Once she started custom decorating cookies, the obsession took hold, and today she is a registered NY State home food processor. “My kitchen has always been my ‘happy place’!” Pam says fondly.
To Pam, every cookie she makes is a mini work of art. She uses high-quality ingredients and pays attention to detail to create custom cookies that are not just a statement for your next event but also a gift that is equally satisfactory for the giver as it is for the receiver. Sugar cookie designs begin with creative cookie cutters to create one-of-a-kind shapes. They are then baked and hand-decorated with royal icing.
Pam’s decorated sugar cookies are perfect for any occasion, from birthdays and baby showers to weddings and christenings. Elegant and ornate cookies will please your hosts at a fancy holiday party, while vibrant colors, shapes, and characters are perfect for a child’s birthday party. Pam can even brand cookies for company events in a unique way. When asked about some of her most memorable orders, Pam recalls “I made several dozen very ornate baby shower cookies for an event in New York City. I packed every single cookie so carefully for shipping…it was quite an undertaking! It was all worth it when I was told the mother-to-be was in tears when she saw the cookies.”
Cookies are perfect for fun and meaningful edible art! Pam’s cookies come in all flavors, including vanilla, lemon, almond, and chocolate. She even offers ‘Paint Your Own Cookie kits’ that include a palette with four colors of edible food coloring, a brush, and a delicious home-baked custom cookie ready to paint with a fun image.
You can find Pam the Baker and her cookies at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market or submit a cookie quote to her website.
