For the cookie baking (and decorating) novice, Chic Cookie kits are fun and the website is full of inspiring ideas.

Amish Paradise: We love Amish baking, so we were excited to find Amish sweets, cookie mixes and more at Amish Acres.

What is Caramel Cob? They say it's a party in your mouth, and we love that kind of party. Thanks chou for the tip!
