Moms on the Side: Cindy Kraus~ Cookie Cakes by Cindy (and Giveaway)

This post may contain sponsored or affiliate links.

One of my favorite things about blogging locally, is finding new moms that have perfected something and do it from home. I rarely visit a bakery, photography studio, gift shop, etc. anymore. I shop through my Moms on the Side. So, I was thrilled when Cindy Kraus emailed me last week to help introduce Cookie Cakes by Cindy! Here is what she wants you to know about her business:


I started a cookiecake business from home to add a second income and help support my 3 boys.  My sons love cookiecake and every year for their birthday, I either had to pay almost $40 for a cookiecake, or buy a cheap one from the grocery store that tasted like the cardboard it came on!  Last year I decided to experiment and make my own. They came out great and got rave reviews!  I started making them for family, friends and co-workers and the word spread from there.  So in December of 2011, I started Cookie Cakes by Cindy!  I love baking and love even more being able to stay at home with my boys!

My cookie cakes are rectangle, 9×13 size, chocolate chip, peanut butter or both with vanilla (can be tinted) and chocolate buttercream. I also offer mini cookiecakes (pictured below).  Please visit my Facebook page and try one of my Cookie Cakes for your next occasion!
