I am so happy today to feature SweetsAmbs, a custom cookie shop owned by Amber Spiegel. Her gorgeous cookie designs have been featured in InStyle Magazine, Your Wedding Day Magazine, and Cake Central Magazine. One peek into her Etsy shop and it's easy to see why her sweet edibles have received so much attention.
What was your background before you began SweetAmbs?
What inspired you to start SweetAmbs?
I was inspired to start SweetAmbs by my mom, who after seeing my first batch of decorated cookies, encouraged me to open my online shop on Etsy.com. Cookies are the best way for me to combine my love of baking and art. And, since they are easy to ship, it allows me to share my craft with people all over the world.
Describe your work in 5 words.
Elegant, delicious, unique, detailed, beautiful.
What is your work space like?
I have a small bakeshop in Upstate New York. It’s just big enough to fit me and my stuff. I’m really lucky to work in a space with huge windows and lots of natural light, which is great for taking photos of my work. It’s the first bakery in which I’ve worked that isn’t in a basement.What are you doing when you are not creating? When I’m not busy decorating cookies or coming up with new designs, I’m doing some mundane business related task such as organizing receipts. But, when I do find myself with free time, I’m usually browsing local antique stores and vintage shops, which is where I get most of the inspiration for my designs.
Who or what inspires you?
My parents and grandparents have been the biggest inspirations in my life. I come from a family of artists and entrepreneurs and I’m blessed to be able to follow in their footsteps.
What advice would you give to couples seeking to make their wedding memorable and special?
Including handmade items in your wedding is a great way to make it a memorable and special day. Etsy is an amazing online marketplace for all kinds of handmade items and most sellers are willing to create something customized to your taste.
