My Story

Hi friends, My name is Ashleigh and I am the creator of Cookie Lane. My story starts somewhere back in the early 90s, where I would spend Christmas holidays with my Grandmother in her kitchen creating delicious treats for our family feast for Christmas Day. White Christmas, Rocky Road, Fudge, Puddings, Cakes, Pavlovas and whipping endless amounts of cream and sugar to go on top of everything. 

I have always had a bit of a love for baking and from my late teens I was always the designated cake/dessert maker when it came to parties for friends and family. 

It wasn't until late 2017 that a friend and I decided to attend a super cute cupcake class at our local cake store. My teacher for that class was full of so much knowledge and kindness and with her guidance and encouragement, my friend and I walked out of the class with 6 cupcakes that actually looked like they came from a couple of half decent decorators. 

The following 12 months I attended more classes and watched way too many Youtube tutorials and a complete realisation that I actually had an intense passion for cake decorating AND I was actually good at it! 
Late 2018 my life had been flipped turned upside down after I had my most magical creation. My son, Elias. After spending my days getting to know this incredible human, I managed to peel myself away from him to attend another class.

This right here was my turning point. I knew I wanted to turn my love of caking, into a career.

Cookie Lane was created and my life just started taking all the right turns.
I was engaged to my longtime partner and mother of my baby, Kristie. Then the very next day I was offered a position with the AMAZING team at Lollipop Cake Supplies. Kristie and I had our wedding (You will find photos on my socials) and some fantastic family, personal and professional developments and here we are! I am truly blessed to have had the support and encouragement from my fellow cakers, my family and of course my wife and son and i am ever so blessed to be here today and to have the opportunity to create such special moments for others. I am one super dooper, lucky gal!!
