Decorated Cookies and Gourmet Treats

Baking is my passion!!
I've been a Baker/Pastry Chef for over 30 years
I could give you a list of places I've worked, and achievements I've made.
But it would take up a lot of room. So I'll try to keep it simple.
And start from here in Florida :0)

After many years of vacations to Florida visiting family.
And getting tired of the snow. I told my boss in Michigan,
I was going to look for a job next time I came.
Needless to say, it only took 1 day.
I was offered a job at the Panther Hockey Team Stadium.
At that time it was called the National Car rental Center.
I was the Head Pastry Chef of the Emerald Club Room.
That's where the season ticket holders, music artists, and stars would come for games, concerts, and events. Loved it!!

After that...since with Florida. Most jobs are seasonal in my business.
I went to a Private Club in Hillsboro, FL
After working extremely hard for other people.
I decided to take a chance and do it for myself

The cookies started as a fluke...but the response was so great!
I designed cookies for gift basket shops. Worked with party planners.
It's so much fun! Plus I started in my little 2 bedroom apartment.

Things grew to enormous feats...I had to make a change.
I got so busy, that I taught my husband to bake.
He's been an amazing accent to the business!!!
Works all day, and bakes when needed...which is often :0)

I was inspired to open my Etsy shop with my Grandmother in mind.
That's her picture you see on my front page.

She was a Fabulous....I mean Fabulous baker!!
It's her Shortbread Cookie recipe that we use here at Lori's Place
It's a Polish recipe, by we've added our own twist by using Caribbean Extracts.
They have more intense flavors!

Freshness and Quality are the keys to our success!
We hope you'll try us and see!

Locals are the lucky ones!
They get Cupcakes, Chocolates, Caramel Apples, Gourmet Pretzels...the list goes on and on.

If your in the area...stop by!
I've met so many of my customers, coming down to Disney.
And by the way...they use our designs too :)
