Weekly Update!

Hi everyone!!!

So it's time for an update!

I have been working with Columbus Alive for a future feature they are doing on local cookie companies and sent some Ohio to their offices to test. I am SO excited to be a part of this story with a few other local cookie companies. It will be published in CRAVE and will more than likely be in the Fall issue.

I FINALLY met Wolf (@twstarr) from the SBB (Small Business Beanstalk) last week. If you don't have an SBB card, they are free and you must get one! He is doing such great things with local businesses! I had such a great time meeting him and I cannot wait for Yellow Duck to be a part of The SBB!

My friend Courtnie and I were so busy getting marketing and all that together last week. I'm so thankful I have a best friend that is a Marketing/Social Media diva that can you know show me how to make and use a QR code :)

I am starting to email promotions and sales to people so please email me at and say add me to your email list! This way you won't miss a promotion or any great offers!

Saturday night was CYP A Date 2 Remember. I was so honored to be among so many other great food vendors that night. I was so happy to be next to my friend, Tammi, who owns PolkaDot Cupcakery. We had a good time :) There were around 1,000 attendees. Here are some pictures of the event. Thanks again to Katherine and Heidi for everything!

Homage to Billy Madison

I played around with Valentine's Day the other night and this is what came out of it. I will also be selling singles designs for us single folk :)

And last but MOST important please do not forget to vote for us for Columbus Alive's "Best local treat" We are #32 on the ballot!

It's been far too long!

Miss Maggie enjoying some Yellow Duck cookies!

Oh wow this is going to be a long blog!!! I've been so bad blogging but I'm here to get everyone up to date with all things Yellow Duck!!!

First off some pictures of orders I have done!

Ok that's enough :) haha

I am introducing cakes this week. The pricing and flavors and such will be up on the website this week. Here is a picture of a cake I did this past week!

I wanted to also update everyone on some fun charity events we are doing that are coming up! This year is my mom's 10 year anniversary of her death and I want to honor her all year long by doing great things with giving back!

- January 28: CYP A Date 2 Remember. We are honored to be the ONLY cookie company asked to sponsor this event. We are baking around 500 cookies to donate. See the website below to find out about this HUGE AWESOME event!!!

- Cakes for a Cause. We will be donating an auction item! Last year this event raised enough money to feed 16 families all year long through the Mid Ohio Food Bank! Such a great cause!

- The James Cancer Center. I am so happy to be getting the chance to donate to James. This is where my mom had her surgery and where her doctor worked. She just loved the care and the hospitality at James. I will be donating cookies for refreshments at an event for hereditary cancer fighters and their families and making a few items for prizes.

Ok on to holidays!

For Valentine's Day I will be offering some sort of basket. I'm thinking per great guidance I will do cookies that look like conversation hearts and red heart sandwiches. Keep a look out for pricing and such!

Then onto Easter! I will be offering cut out Easter eggs and Easter jars. The Easter jars will be topped with green colored coconut and jelly beans :) I will be offering cookie Easter baskets also!

Last but not least I want to announce that I am starting to do all things weddings! Rehearsals, receptions, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and showers. You name the theme and we can make it work! Each wedding party will be specially priced and quoted. Bundles are available for multiple events with discounts. Please pass this info on to all your engaged friends :)

I think that is going to wrap up this blog! Thank you to everyone who has been a supporter of Yellow Duck! I appreciate all of you so much!

Keep warm out there :)

Tasting event with Camelot Wines!

I wanted to post a quick blog with pictures from last nights tasting at Camelot Cellars. The event went very very well with around 65-70 guests there. It meant the world to me to see some faces there. Especially some high school friends, family, and my mom's best friend from high school and college room mate! We are thinking about putting together another tasting in the spring with all spring flavors... Think key lime! I am so appreciative of everyone's support and kind words. I'm a happy girl this morning.

Setting up the event

Me with the first spread. 500 cookies total...

Very beginning of the evening. I got busy and didn't get any pictures when Camelot was full :(

Please email me at for any questions or Tweet me!

Thank you all again for your support and I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and as a Fashion grad.... Have a fabulous black Friday!!! :)

My 9/11 post

Hi all. I meant to do this post yesterday. I have to admit I tried to ignore most of the 9/11 specials yesterday. While it was heavily on my mind, those memories are still hard to watch and to think what those poor people suffered is still hard to swallow 10 years later. As an American citizen I felt at the end of the day it was my duty to watch one and I did. I watched the special where a camera man followed the FDNY that day and actually had footage inside the tower as it collapsed. It was an amazing film. It was raw and real. Here are my memories....

My mom and I at Battery Park 4 months prior to the attack. This is what they used as the morgue.

Our group at Liberty Island 4 months prior to the attack.

4 months before the attack

A post card my best friend sent me from her visit in 1999.

Back at Liberty Island in 2006. I climbed the Statue of Liberty to the very top of her crown in 2001 with my mom, you are not allowed to do so anymore since the attack.

At ground zero in 2006. They had pictures up all around the rubble of the attacks. It was very quiet and most people there didn't speak.

Sorry, it's sideways :/ 5 years later and it still looked like this...

I am proud to have seen the towers before the attack and it always bothered me that I was there so close to the attack. Being in NYC pre and post the attack are very different visits.

God bless everyone affected by this tragedy and those who are still mourning lost loved ones.

Our new website!!!


We have finally launched our own website!

You are able to place your order on this site and through Paypal. You will have to include the specifics of the design and color in a message if you are ordering cut out cookies. I will still be blogging from this blog and updating it with new cookies as I make them. I am still in the process of deciding what cookies outside the Buckeye and cut outs that will be on the menu. If there is ever a certain type you need I am sure that I can whip them up :) We also can now ship cookies with the added price of shipping and handling.

I'm also so excited about the new business cards I ordered! They are so cute!

Also a BIG shout out to Jackie Shull for all the help with the website and business cards! I truly appreciate it! Love ya!

Thank you to everyone for your support and help!!!

Have a great week!

I'm still alive... Promise!

Hi all!

It's been way too long since I have blogged! So usually I just post one duck picture but I've collected a few since the last post :)

Aren't they perfect? ;)

I wanted to let everyone know that we will be having cookies at the JaneTv event this Thursday at Camelot Cellars from 7:00-9:00. Jane is doing great things for women in Columbus and its going to be so exciting to watch it take off! All girls should be there to have fun, drink wine, and eat a cookie. We are so excited to be a part of this event.

I went to a cookout a few weeks ago and the host had made these cupcakes. How cute are they?

I've been thinking about trying to get my cookies in some cafe's or coffee shops around Columbus. I need to get working on this! I think this would be so exciting!

I'm all about trying new local restaurants around Columbus. Here are a few that i have loved!!!
-Press Grill has become a weekly or some weeks twice weekly dinner spot. It has good dinner specials and amazing white pizza and macaroni and cheese.
-Nancy's is a breakfast/brunch eatery. It is very small but you sit and watch them grill your food in front of you. I recommend a breakfast sandwich and home fries. It is as home cooked as you can get.
-Jack and Bennys is also a breakfast eatery. It is also small and family ran. Their menu is huge and offer around 20 different omelets. I have a weakness for potato pancakes and they have delicious ones! Oh and the pancakes???? They have about 8 different kinds... Including Reeses!

So if you are looking for a new small place to eat that is all about local home cooked meals, give these places a try!!!

Have a great day and i hope to see you girls Thursday!
