celebrating & illustrating unique lives with edible artwork
in nashville, tn
hey friends! i'm emily, the cookie girl.
I’m an entrepreneur, cookie designer, & content creator with an abiding love for helping people feel seen & celebrated through handcrafted decorated cookies.
My cookies may look professional now, but trust me, they weren’t always this pretty! Over a decade ago I started Cookie in the Kitchen in my hometown of Atlanta, GA as a lil' eleven year old. Unlike the other creative hobbies I toyed with for a year then lost interest in, cookies stuck around; they grew up with me!
I decided to study entrepreneurship & graphic design at Belmont University in Nashville, TN to grow my business & pursue my dream of opening a bakery. After 11 years of being both a baker and a student I graduated in 2022 and am now creating cookies in Nashville full time. Woohoo!
i believe everyone is worthy of celebration.
Celebration is serious business. Whether I'm making cookies for Harry Styles or my next door neighbor, I strongly believe that everyone deserves their significant moments, relationships, and stories to be celebrated—big and small.
My hope isn't simply to provide you with beautiful & delicious cookies, but to help you & the people you love to feel seen. Just like the way you feel when a dear friend remembers a little detail of a story you told months ago or gives you such a meaningful gift for your birthday you can't believe someone knows you THAT well. I would be honored to collaborate with you in your celebrations!
so what do you say?

time for the secret ingredients.
You deserve cookies as uniquely made as you are! Every cookie that goes through my oven I personally design with a thoughtful attention to detail, making sure to curate the whole set with interesting shapes, color palettes & icing techniques. No order is the same! I decorate by hand and don't use edible images.
My cookies are after capturing the real you, right now. In a way, they're like mini, edible time capsules! (Just don't bury them for 10+ years.) I also care about showing you the real me; I'm not a cookie robot nor a perfect businesswoman. You can trust I will be upfront with my own humanness as we work together!
