A long time resident of Del Ray, I started my small confections company, Culinary Endeavors in 2002. During this time I was a contract chef and recipe developer. I was no stranger to Del Ray so in 2010, I made my debut as the Del Ray Cakery at Art on the Avenue festival. I had been serving up sweet treats and cakes to my friends and family but thought it was time to share them with others. The Del Ray Cakery was born. For 10 years I created many beautiful cakes and thousands of cake pops for my clients. In 2020, I rebranded my company in a new direction creating the Del Ray Cookie Company. No longer will I be making cake or cupcakes but instead full time cookie treats!
Before cooking, I was a master teacher in Fairfax County where I taught second grade and mentored new teachers. My second love after teaching was baking and making anything with chocolate. My first aspirations where to be a chocolatier. I really loved anything that was made out of sugar and chocolate but my husband suggested that I first learn how to cook and if this was what I wanted to pursue, then I should enroll in pastry school. So in 2001, I enrolled in culinary school at L’ Academie de Cuisine to explore this new possible career. Culinary school opened up a whole new world for me. I absolutely loved it! So I continued my education a second year in pastry school. I graduated with high honors from both the culinary and pastry arts programs. After working in several area restaurants, I landed a position as Pastry Chef at The Blair House, the President’s guest house. There I created desserts, pastries, cookies and fine chocolates for presidents and heads of state for almost 4 years! My experiences there helped to create what I am doing today.
Today, my home-based, cookie boutique bakes and decorates cookies for each of my clients. Still available are my cake pops, cocktail pops, cakesicles, fancy pretzels, rice krispy treats and my hand-rolled truffles from the Del Ray Cakery. These can be added to any cookie order occasion. My new endeavor is here to make sweet cookie treats for your next celebration!

If not paid within 24 hours, I will not honor your request and your order will be cancelled. I am only able to take a limited amount of orders each week so my calendar fills up quickly.
How long do cookies generally stay fresh? All cookies come individually wrapped in a heat sealed bag and can stay fresh for up to 2 weeks. If you need to save them longer then 2 weeks, place them in an air tight container and freeze. If wanting cookies to come wrapped with a bow and in a box, an extra fee is added onto your final cost.
How long do cake pops and cocktail pops last? These treats should be refrigerated until your party. If wanting to save longer, bag tightly in an air tight container and refrigerate 2-3 weeks or freeze for 1-2 months.
