* Welcome *

Dash of Sweets specializes in custom decorated cookies for any occasion. All cookies are made from scratch and decorated to make your occasion as tasty and memorable as possible.

My apprentice

My 5 year old daughter's attempt at turning a leaf shaped cookie into a turkey. 

Just a tasty reminder than they watch us (closer than I would like sometimes), and that we need to be someone they look up to. 

I can't wait until she perfects her flooding technique, she'll be unstoppable. Don't you just love the white eye lashes? She said "that's so they'll know it's a girl turkey!"

My Cupcake Addiction

I have been following  Elise Strachan on www.mycupcakeaddiction.com for quite some time and I am so glad I was scrolling through Instagram at 11pm last night or I would have missed that she was going to be here in Arizona today. 

I loved listening to her tell the backstory of how she got started and amazed at how far she has come. Her cookbook is chalked full of fun and yummy treats and awesome ways to hosts a fabulous party.

If you have a chance to meet Elise or even just pick up her book, you will not regret it. I was pretty star struck myself, and who can get over that accent, it's the best!

Halloween Cookies

The Halloween cookie fever is going strong here today and thanks to www.instagram.com/ks.cookie.creations/ for the inspiration for this bunch of scary faces! 

I whipped up a couple dozen because nothing makes getting Halloween "Boo'ed" more fun than finding these little cuties on your front porch. 
Plus, ding dong ditching is still one of my most favorite things to do! 
Although literally carrying my 5 year old while running out of sight is more of a workout than I bargain for 99% of the time. I probably need a workout (or 100) after eating more monsters than I'm willing to admit.

Meet the Dash of Sweets Staff

Allow me to introduce you to the staff of Dash of Sweets:

Lindsay... that's me
I am the head honcho behinds the operation and cookie/treats maker baker.  
If you can't find me in the kitchen baking and filling orders, you can find me hanging out with my family and drinking Dr Pepper.... LOTS of Dr Pepper!

The Guy:
My hubby, and self appointed "Chief Executive", that part is still TBD, but he does hold the position of biggest supporter and boy does he fill that role well. He is an NP by day and cookie tester by night and I love having him by my side in this crazy adventure.

The under age and under paid employees are:

Little Miss: 
She is well on her way to a spot at the big decorating table, for a 6 year old her piping skills are wicked good. I can always count on her to test the cookie dough and she is always ready with a compliment on my finished products. She keeps my ego soaring!

Little Man:
If the mixer is running I can count to 3 and he will show up out of nowhere, spoon in hand, wondering what our next project is. He is working on his piping skills almost as much as he works on writing his abc's and is probably going to be permanently damaged by the amount of sugar he inhales.

After a long day of filling orders, her apron is my sentiments exactly! 
I love this business and am so excited to share this adventure with you all.
