Hi I'm Giselle!

I am a wife, the mother of six amazing kids and an obsessive cookie decorator.

My love of cookie decorating started in 2011 when my husband was on his second deployment. I wanted to send him cake but that just doesn't ship well. I saw some cute decorated sugar cookies and thought I'd give it a try. I picked up a piping bag and never looked back.

When my husband returned from his deployment I continued baking and decorating cookies, but with one difference....I did it in heels. I wanted to keep things fun and sexy. That's where Baking in Heels came in.

At the time you could not sell cookies in Louisiana, so I started a blog where I could talk "cookies" with others who loved decorating them as much as I do.

Since then, the cottage food law of Louisiana has allowed me to sell my cookies! *insert happy dance*

I run a small home based cookie business and I hope to open a cookie shop sometime in the near future.

Welcome to Baking In Heels!

Thanks for stopping by my shop. Make yourself at home and look around. If there is something you want but don't see listed, don't hesitate to ask. I'd be happy to put up a listing for you.

All of my decorated cookies are baked from scratch and hand decorated by me. Nothing is ever pre-made or frozen. I put only the highest quality ingredients into my decorated cookies. Since each cookie is hand made there can be slight variations in color or design with each cookie.

Since I do all the baking and decorating myself, I can only take so many orders per week. Be sure to order early so I can reserve the date of your event. Orders are not placed until payment is made.

I love making custom orders. If you would like something custom made for your event, please message me. I will need to know the theme, quantity needed, shipping zip code and the date of the event. If you have pictures of the invitation or cookies you would like me to use as inspiration please attach them with your message.

If you have asked me to set up a custom listing, asked about an available date or spoke with me in detail about placing an order, the date is still not reserved until you have paid for the order. I get numerous inquiries as well as clients asking to set up custom listings and an order is never placed. For this reason, I am unable to hold a date until the order is booked. The link for your custom listing will stay active in the shop until the next business day. Having the link up does not hold the date. The date is held after purchase. Sometimes the links are left up longer, in this event it is best to check back with me prior to purchasing the listing in case the date has been booked.

I look forward to baking something special for you.

*Please be sure to verify your address during checkout so that your order isn't delayed. If you need the address changed after purchase and your order has not shipped, please message me and I'll do my best to get the address changed for you. Changing the address may require you to repurchase and refund the first order.

Returns and exchange details
Your order is packaged with extreme care. Each cookie is individually bagged, heat sealed and tied with an organza ribbon. They are then wrapped in bubble wrap, placed in a box and surrounded with packing peanuts.

Unfortunately, cookies are fragile and Baking in Heels CANNOT be responsible for cookies that are broken once they are in the hands of USPS. I do not often have broken cookies, however it does sometimes happen. If you are concerned with cookies braking, I always suggest ordering a few extras.

Since this is an edible product, all sales are final. I cannot accept returns, exchanges, cancellations or offer refunds.
Cookies are made to order and will not be processed until payment is made.

I do not hold dates, even if we have spoken about an available date. A date is NOT booked until payment is made.

I accept payments through PayPal, Etsy Gift Cards, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
Orders are shipped via USPS Priority mail. It generally takes between 2-3 business days from date of shipment to receive your order. This is an estimate and cannot be guaranteed. Shipping cost include packaging, handling and shipping.

If no date is given, an order will ship out 10-14 business days from the order date or my next available. Whichever date is sooner.

If we have spoken prior to ordering and I have booked you for a specific date, your order will be shipped approximately 6 days prior to your event date.

Your order is packaged with extreme care. A lot of time and effort is made to ensure your order arrives to you intact. I am not responsible for any mishandling, breakage or shipping delays due to the USPS, weather or incorrect address information upon ordering.

Be sure to verify your address during checkout. I will ship your order to the address that is listed with Etsy.

I will include a tracking number with your shipping notification. Shipping notifications are sent directly from Etsy and are sent to your email address on file.

I DO NOT ship outside of the United States.
Additional policies and FAQs
*Please check with me prior to purchase to be sure I can get you in for your requested date.

*If you have ordered and no date is given I will make every attempt to get in touch with you. If I can't reach you, the cookies will be shipped out 10-14 business days from date ordered or the next available date (whichever is sooner).

*All of our cookies are made to order so be sure to place your order at least 2-4 WEEKS prior to your event.

*If you need cookies for an event sooner then two weeks please convo me and I'll see what I can do to fit you in. However, there will be a $15 rush fee if your date needed is less than 10 days away. Additional Shipping charges will apply.

*Please allow time for me to respond to any messages sent. I am generally either baking or decorating cookies and am not at my computer. I will get back with you within 24 hours, normally within a few hours.

*If you would like an existing item for sale with additional quantities just let me know and I would be glad to put up a custom listing for you. The minimum order is a dozen.

*Each cookie is hand made and unique so there may be slight variations from the ones pictured.

FOOD ALLERGIES: Although an allergen may not be listed in our ingredients, please note that our cookies are made in a kitchen containing known food allergens, including, but not limited to: wheat, eggs, milk, soy, peanuts, and tree nuts.
