Lindsey Love is the sugary sweet powerhouse behind Coco Love Homemade. Kissing her buying career at Urban Outfitter adieu she made the plunge into the oven and came out with her to die for, buzz worthy whoopie pies and cookies. If you are cruising for mom of the year award you might want to put your order in for a giant Whoopie Pie Cake. But she makes a ton of other things I just happen to favor the most decadent of all her creations.
This month she let Philli Jilli and her side kick Hazel into her test kitchen for a little sugar cookie 101. Love’s test kitchen is beyond whimsical and if you even wanted to know what it feels like to be inside a pinata you should try to finagle an invite. Now this was not all fun and games. As HipsterHenry.com’s Food Writer, Philli Jilli had some tough questions for Mrs. Love while she learned to make, bake and ice her way to cookie heaven.

I had a great time with Lindsey at the Coco Love test kitchen! Making delicious sugar cookies and decorating them were totally cool! Lindsey made everything seem easy! Making the icing was much easier than I thought. Lindsey had so many ideas to decorate the cookies and of course her crazy cookie cutters like the squirrel one. I loved touring her creative house while we waited for our cookies to be baked. Thank you, Lindsey!
