Hello and welcome to Sugar Sensation! My name is Angela and I am the sole proprietor of making your sugar treats sensational. I've been making custom decorated sugar cookies for over 4 years, providing my customers with cookies that are beautiful AND taste great with a soft texture that melts in your mouth. In addition, I have recently added cakes and French macarons to my bakery offerings.
My background is in finance from the software world and a second career in nursing. After I finished my BSN, (bachelor of science in Nursing) I decided to stay at home with our two children who were 5 & 7 at the time. They are now 19 & 21. I've been married to my wonderful husband, Gary for almost 29 years.
I stumbled upon cookie decorating by accident. My curiosity of how to get that smooth coat of frosting onto a sugar cookie perplexed me. So YouTube and I went to work. I figured it out plus so much more. I'm completely self taught and think you'll be pleasantly surprised with how beautiful your cookies will look, not to mention their great taste!
This is the first cookie I ever decorated! As I previously mentioned, this was meant to be an experiment, not a business. I continued learning and making cookies for friends and family. I would post my creations on FB and received amazing responses from friends, family and people I didn't even know - they wanted to buy my cookies! I was in no way prepared for this as I wasn't planning on starting a business. Life was extremely busy with our children being 15 & 17 and my husband on permanent disability. But, this was bigger than any experiment. It was a God thing.
I'm a faithful person and trusted that the success I was having with cookie decorating was meant to be. I prayed about it and God led me. God answered, showing me how to proceed ahead while I continued to learn this new found skill. I am extremely blessed to have learned so quickly and be part of a community that constantly shares ideas and knowledge.
