Royal B’s Cookies creates custom sugar cookies to help celebrate the milestones, memories, and special events in your life. Our signature sugar cookie is soft, thick, and buttery – hand decorated with royal icing to include every special detail and request. Your guests will rave about the detail in the decoration, but they will not stop talking about the delicious taste. In addition to our signature sugar cookie, we also offer red velvet, chocolate, strawberry, gluten free, and so many more options.

As a child, I always wanted to be a scientist, and as I got older, I focused in and wanted to go into cancer research. After spending so much time successfully tutoring my peers, I decided to change gears and go into teaching. Being a baker was never on my radar, and yet here I am – baking cookies and decorating them for holidays and special occasions!

I love using my chemistry background to develop new recipes, but my favorite part is hearing how much my clients enjoy their cookies! My first wedding cookies were for my sister-in-law. She and my brother-in-law are pretty non-traditional and wanted something other than a cake for their intimate wedding. They are both huge chocolate lovers, and so my chocolate sugar cookie recipe was born!

“Royal B’s Cookies made cookies for the guests of my small backyard wedding. We are pretty non-traditional and wanted something other than a cake. The cookies were perfect, and the details of our wedding date and names on each cookie were outstanding! We have used Royal B’s Cookies for every special occasion since. Be sure to order enough, we always run out!”
- Bethany D. (Bride 2013)

I have worked with quite a few couples for pre-wedding cookies, and I love to see them come back and order more for the holidays and other special occasions. As a cookie lady, I am ready to make cookies a permanent feature of the non-traditional weddings!

Having a couple select you to take part in their special day is such an honor, and I cannot wait to help bring some non-traditional desserts to the table!
