Welcome to Y & L Custom Cookies. My name is Lorez and my husband's name is Yusef. Previously we owned a business that specialized in special occasion cakes and baked goods as well as delicious chocolates. When we added custom cookies to the list of goodies, I just fell in love with them! After some time, we decided to focus only on designing delicious custom cookies. Yusef, (the "Y" in Y & L) has encouraged and supported me through the process of turning a hobby into a business that is both fun and makes others happy!
My journey to creating wonderful baked goods began about 20 years ago when I volunteered at our church to run the kitchen for a two week long summer camp. Since I have a background in restaurant management, this was a good fit. During that event, I became a "foodie" obsessed with offering creative delicious meals for the staff and campers.
I then began to cater events where I prepared meals of several courses including desserts. This is when I fell in love with baking! Seeing the smiles my cakes and confections brought to the faces of my friends, family and customers made me want to focus in that area.
Thank you for allowing me to do what I love, which is making delicious cookies that will become part of your celebration!
If you have any questions, need any additional information, or would like to place an order, please contact us. I look forward to hearing from you and creating your special order of custom cookies.
