Sugar Mama Cookies Offers Unique Creations for Birthdays and More

January 31, 2012

Sugar Mama CookiesInstead of a cake for your next birthday party, why not try offering custom sugar cookies? Sugar Mama Cookies, based in San Francisco, was started by mom Roxanne Pangilinan, whose unique, hand-decorated cookies are the highlight of many parties throughout the Bay Area.

All her cookies are made from scratch and baked to order and she offers gluten- and dairy-free cookies on requested. Pricing starts at $30 per dozen with an average price of $3–6 per cookie.

Popular designs include characters like Lightning McQueen from Pixar's Cars, Thomas the Tank Engine, Dora the Explorer, the Cookie Monster, and Elmo. Other shapes and themes are available of course—from a tutu/ballerina theme to a pirate theme party. Roxanne can even match an image from an invitation—customers will email her with their invitation or theme, and she'll get back to them with a few design options in a range of prices.

Roxanne, who has a marketing background, starting decorating cookies while staying home after the birth of her son. She had always wanted to try her hand at some "fancy" hand-decorated sugar cookies and made it a goal to learn how to make decorated sugar cookies for her son's first birthday party, which had a Where the Wild Things Are theme. Creating the cookies took some practice but the finished product actually exceeded her expectations.

After finding that there were not many local bakeries that make these types of cookies, Roxanne realized she could start a business selling her creations. She started a blog to post pictures of her cookies and soon began to get orders and inquiries from people who found her online. She was even recently featured in the current (Spring/Summer 2012) issue of The Knot magazine.
