The Cookie Cups, a local bakery with two locations in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, was started by entrepreneur Nicole Pomije five years ago after making a mistake in her home kitchen. Since then, it has grown considerably and has been seen in Buzzfeed, Forbes, Fast Company and several other media outlets.
Like so many other small businesses during COVID-19, The Cookie Cups had to adapt to new protocols, offering delivery services and closing it doors to the public for a period of time until it was safe to open. When Pomiji’s husband shared a link to a virtual cooking class, she had the idea for the bakery’s first ever at-home experience: The Unicorn Cookie Cup Baking Kit.
The Unicorn Cookie Cup Baking Kits allow families to experience the magic that can happen in a home kitchen when the entire family bakes together. Available for nationwide shipping, each kit includes everything needed to make 24 mini cookie cups, including dry ingredients, cooking supplies, an apron and an adorable unicorn serving plate. It also comes with a unicorn horn mold to make chocolate unicorn horns.
The Cookie Cups also offers a Pizza Making Kit to complete the family meal experience. Kids ages 3 and up will be able to bake a 12” pizza from scratch including making their own dough from flour. It includes an apron, measuring cup, stainless steel baking pan, spatula, pizza cutter, rolling pin and pizza ingredients. All that’s required outside of the kit is cheese.
