In 2011 I started my new hobby of decorating cookies and trying out all kinds of fun treats.
This site started as a blog called Sweet Hobby by Natalie to chronicle my little adventures in sugar cookies, royal icing, glaze, fondant, cakes, cupcakes, anything yummy. I quickly focused on decorated sugar cookies only!

I started getting order request and in 2013 I officially started my sweets business and changed my name to SweetShopNatalie! 

I added teaching cookie decorating classes in 2014 out of my certified Home Cottage Kitchen, and have taught hundreds of classes and I really enjoy sharing the "cookie love" with others.

In addition to teaching classes out of my home I have taught locally at Bakers C&C and have taught classes at CookieCon SLC 2017, CookieCon Reno 2019, and recently was a core instructor at CookieC0n Dallas 2021 and will be teaching again at CookieCon Reno 2022. 

I have been on local TV shows a few times, including Studio 5 and The Place.

I am a wife and mother of two children and keep busy with them as well as another home business called Studio S where I have worked as a Master Esthetician and Makeup artist since 2001. 

Having these other two roles lets me only take a limited number of cookie orders with SweetShopNatalie, I now only offer holiday cookie sales and teach cookie decorating classes.

Use my LINKTREE links for all my social media platforms, online classes, in-person classes and holiday cookie sales!
