About the Author

Patti Paige

Patti Paige is an artist, baker, and owner of Baked Ideas in New York City. She and her small staff decorate cakes and cookies that reflect her affinity for clean simple design, vibrant color and artistic flair. Memories of the shaped cookies her grandmother used to make, a master's degree in painting, and a lifelong habit of making things in and out of the kitchen, have resulted in confections that are as fun and fabulous to look at as they are to eat. She also makes all her own cookie cutters, including a line of 10 yoga pose cutters and cookies that were featured in O Magazine. A few of her many esteemed clients have included Martha Stewart Living, Ina Garten of the Barefoot Contessa and the White House's infamous Egg Roll, featuring her intricately designed Easter cookies. Her first book is now available.Photo: Jennifer Causey
