This local baker is making epic cookies that will impress everyone you know

Words by Talia Rinaldo

Mind blown.

When it comes to the consumption of sweet treats, we’re all about that cookie life. They really are a primo all day, every day type of snack.

One type of cookie you’ve probably noticed a lot lately are royal iced sugar cookies! Handmade and usually customised, these cookies have become a must-have for weddings, baby showers, birthdays, corporate events, fundraisers and even make really sweet birthday gifts for a loved one!

One cookie artist that has caught our eye is Geelong’s very own Jacqui of ‘Cookies By Qui’. Creating premium custom cookies for all life’s special moments, Jacqui has been servicing Geelong and the surrounding areas since 2017, with over eight years of cookie decorating experience.

A home-based business with a fully registered kitchen, this local baking sensation is earning herself a solid reputation for the amount of detail she puts into her little creations. We’ve had to double take on quite a few of her posts of late because they are that realistic – and people are loving it!

From tulip cookie bouquets and Frida Kahlo inspired designs, to Valentine’s day creations, cartoons, ‘donuts’ and even a cheeky penis cookie, you’d be pressed to find a cookie she hasn’t designed. Our favourites yet sees Jacqui experimenting with 3D cookie builds with her recent entirely edible version of Cards Against Humanity. Seriously, how can someone be that talented? And while they look absolutely amazing, they taste even better, made only with the best quality ingredients.

Already booked out for August, this busy baker has already got her Father’s Day designs ready to go for when orders open again on September 1. Have a scroll through her Instagram page, we guarantee you’ll be impressed.

As they say, keep Calm, and cookie on.
