Colorado Springs, CO, April 14, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Art & Style Baking, brings style and delight to this year’s Easter baskets with the release of their latest hand-painted cookie collection. Filled with bashful bunnies, cheerful chicks, and sweet little lambs, the new cookie collection will tickle and satisfy the sweet tooth of the young and the young-at-heart. Art & Style Baking recommends placing Easter orders by Friday, April 15 at www.ArtandStyleBaking.com/Easter or calling 719-694-6332.
Christine Yocum, owner and designer, combines her passion for baking and painting to create what she would regard as “edible works of art.” Each cookie collection starts off with research and inspiration, which render rough sketches. Those sketches are then translated into a paintable version. (Sometimes a design’s level of detail and its intensity of labor may prevent a design from making the final collection.) Each cookie can take up to fifteen minutes to produce which, when calculated, could take up to three hours to complete one dozen cookies. Yocum points out that the use of stencils or air-brushes are out of the question. “We only use fine liners and other small brushes to paint our cookies.” When asked about painting large orders, she states that in an order of five dozen or 500 cookies, each cookie is individually hand-painted.
But get her talking about their taste, and her baker’s conviction is apparent. “First and foremost, we are committed to making a great-tasting cookie—without preservatives. The ingredients we use are those that could be found in almost anyone’s home pantry.” Knowing that their clients value choice, Art & Style Baking cookies are available in seven different flavors. Regular customers have their favorite flavors and rarely budge when it comes to trying a new flavor. Popular flavors include butter, lemon and chocolate orange.
Yocum admits, “Our cookies are definitely a luxury item and are perfect for holidays and life’s special moments when lavishing your guests with something tasty and distinctive is of utmost importance.”
