My name is Stephanie Larkin and I am the owner of Cookieâ€™s Cakes. I haveÂ been married for over 30 years. I am a mother of 3 wonderful children and 2Â grandchildren.Â As a baker, I love the traditional art form of blending raw ingredients and creatingÂ delicious masterpieces that Southern Marylanders enjoy and love. As a child, theÂ kitchen was my playground and baking my pastime. New recipes ignite myÂ creative genius and bring me great excitement. The smell of freshly baked cakesÂ and pies takes me back to the genesis of my love for baking, my mother andÂ grandmother.
I believe using good wholesome ingredients is the key to a great tasting dessert.Â Baking from scratch makes everything taste so much better. I love to experimentÂ and tweak recipes to make them my own and recipes from moms, grandmothersÂ and great grandmothers are some of the best recipes to have. Passing downÂ family traditions through baking and cooking recipes is a great way to keep the
past and present alive.Â I love to keep traditions alive by teaching baking and cupcake decoratingÂ classes, which gives me the opportunity to pass along my favorite pastime -Â baking from scratch.
