Shane Willow Mittman Enjoys Creating Visual Cookie Stories With Interesting Designs

Shane Willow Mittman happily lives in Napa, CA with her beautiful husband Robert. Baking and cooking has always been her favourite activity thanks to her maternal grandparents who used to have a bakery in St. Louis. “The alchemy that happens when making dough and icing is beautiful to me. I feel the heritage and old world traditions of working with the ingredients coming through. I love it every time the dough becomes buttery yellow and forms into the perfect texture. There’s something special about rolling pins, too…” she states on her blog. Her training in a cookie factory years ago was just enough to her hooked! Ever since she enjoyed making cut out, hand-decorated cookies during the holidays for family and hosted lots of fun cookie decorating parties with her friends. Sh never thought she’d grow it into a business but she believes that “Do what you love”. She describes what she does as follows; “As a fine artist I’ve used various mediums over the years to create my art and now it’s icing! I enjoy creating a visual ‘cookie story’ with interesting, thoughtful designs, varying cookie sizes and colors to delight the mind, eyes, and taste buds. It’s fun to create my own techniques or use traditional ones in new ways.” She also adds; “Not unlike an artist studio, Cookies Too is a bakery where ephemeral art is made… on cookies with royal icing… to first delight your eyes… blow your mind a little… make you think outside the cookie box … and then to delight your taste buds with sweet and buttery shortbread goodness…” Cookies Too is her bakery where you can find cookies in varying sizes from bite size to double extra large, complementary colors and interesting themes providing an array of alluring edible sweets for your enjoyment.
