While working in children’s book publishing in London, I happened upon a book about “hand-iced biscuits.” It seemed kismet, as I had spent the previous weekend walking around Liberty London and had spotted the most adorable tin of cookies by “The Biscuiteers” — the sticker had read. Charmed, but with no way to pay for them as an mm-broke university student, I walked away.
Just a few days later, standing in a small room of cast-off books at HarperCollins, I spotted a cookbook written not-so-coincidentally by The Biscuiteers. So, for a few quid, I bought the book and decided to learn how to decorate these beautiful cookies for myself.
Fifteen years later, it still amazes me how such a small inkling can change everything, if you don’t fail to miss it twice. While I never could’ve pictured where I am today – icing hundreds of cookies and celebrating life’s most precious moments with strangers turned family, garnering any kind of online following, or running a successful cookie cutter business with my husband – it turns out a girl, with a good book, a little curiosity and a whole lot of gumption can do quite a bit more than she originally set out to do.
And, I’m not done yet…
