Sometimes, as cookie decorators, we have our "bad" days,
We have all had them.
Simple cookies..turn bad.
Icing is not the right consistency.
A clogged tip.
A blow out in our piping bag.
You drop an entire tray of completed cookies.
You know...one of those days!
This week was one of those weeks for me.
It just sucked!
Then....I got a couple of emails.
I remembered WHY, I love decorating cookies.
It is NOT the number of fans on Facebook.
It is NOT the number of followers on my blog.
It is NOT the the praise from fellow decorators.
It is all about the CUSTOMERS!
The mothers who purchase cookies for a 3rd birthday party.
The devoted friend who hosts a baby shower and wants cookies to serve.
Making people happy with my cookies makes me feel good.
Making cookies that people appreciate, enjoy and order, that is what makes me happy.
Are my cookies the most beautiful cookies out there?
Do I sell as many cookies as others?
But what I DO have is thankful customers.
Today...I want to share with you the super simple cookies I made, and the emails I got in return.
Super simple Onesie cookies for a baby shower, hosted by Kari.
I just wanted to let you know how much all the guests and I loved the cookies you made for me in December! I had some left over and just finished the last one and let me tell you even after 3 weeks they were still as good, soft and fresh as day 1!! I can not get over how good your cookies were-- by far the best gourmet cookies I've ever had-- hands down!! Thank you so much again-- I hope I get an opportunity to Order your cookies again!!
Next up, I did simple Curious George cookies for Courtney.
Oh my god!!!! That is the most incredible job I have ever seen!!!!!!!!! I love you! You are so talented. I am so lucky to have crossed paths with you. I know that we will keep in touch long term! Xo courtney
Those two emails, they grounded me. They brought my head back to where it is meant to be.
To simple cookies. Cookies that my loyal customers want.
