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