About Frosted Jules Cookies
Hi there - I'm JulieMarie, owner and decorator behind Frosted Jules Cookies! Lots of people asked how I first got started baking and decorating cookies - it was a journey that started in middle school. As a kid, I was a member of my local 4-H club and one of my projects was cake decorating. This was where my knowledge of and love for holding a pastry bag, mixing icing colors, and bringing a design to life in dessert form first came from. Over the years, I made a lot of cakes (even my own birthday cakes!), dabbled in cupcakes, and then in 2012, found my true passion: decorated sugar cookies.
The very first set of cookies I made was for a Halloween party and soon, I was baking and decorating cookies for every special occasion and just because! After much encouragement from family and friends, I finally decided to make this a "thing" and opened Frosted Jules Cookies in 2016. There have been so many people who have believed in me, supported me, and taste-tested for me along the way - I'm forever grateful. Most of all, thank you to my customers who trust me to bring a sweet touch to their special events and enable me to nurture my right brain.
When I'm not in the kitchen baking and decorating, you can find me at the University of Colorado, where I'm a professor with the Presidents Leadership Class. I also enjoy international travel and spending time with my husband, Michael, and our dogs. We love to volunteer with Guide Dogs for the Blind as puppy raisers (another 4-H project turned lifelong passion pursuit!)
I hope you'll get in touch soon about your custom cookie needs!
- How much do you charge?
Pricing starts at $42/dozen or $3.50/cookie with a minimum order size of 12 cookies. Once you get in touch and let us know what you're wanting, we can build a custom proposal for you.
- How far in advance do I need to order?
7-10 days is helpful for smaller orders. Custom decorated sugar cookies are an art! Between planning designs, acquiring supplies, baking, and decorating, it is a multi-day process. For larger orders (over 4 dozen), 2+ weeks is preferable. You can always contact us and we'll let you know what the calendar looks like!
- What kinds of designs can do you do?
The sky's the limit and we will work hard to bring your vision to life in cookie form! When you get in touch, let us know your preferences: shapes, colors, writing can all be customized to make a cohesive set. For example, we are happy use pictures of your party decor or invitations for inspiration. You're welcome to share pictures of other cookies you find out there, but please know out of respect for our fellow cookie decorators, we generally only use that as a starting point and do not directly replicate others' designs and original ideas. A lot of time and energy goes into planning custom cookies and we want to create something truly unique and special for you!
