AFTER 12 years working in chemical research for drug companies nationwide, 45-year-old Sarah Lawrenson, from Worston, is about to launch her new business making cookies.
Sarah initially started baking with her children for Mother’s Day, but quickly found there was a potential market, after being asked to provide bespoke cookies for events.
Sarah set up the Queen of Hearts Cookie Company and now bakes cookies for everything from wedding favours, anniversaries, children’s parties to corporate gifts and greetings cards.
All the cookies are handmade using local produce and hand decorated. The cookies can be personalised with unique designs and shapes, photos, personalised messages and themes.
Sarah said: “I’ve always enjoyed cooking with the children and they have given me lots of inspiration and ideas. The cookies just seem to have taken off. I’m now looking forward to my new venture.”
Sarah is already looking at making gluten free and organic cookies, along with introducing new flavours such as spice, chocolate and rose-infused cookies.
