Jennifer Taylor-Miller started Fatty Cakes NY on a "total whim".

Her job in children's media wasn't giving her the creative outlet she desired. So she started baking cookies.

Jennifer was playing an old-fashioned game of "Stump The Baker" where friends of hers would give her off the wall suggestions for cookies to bring into the office. One of the favorites of the office was an original flavor, the movie theater. A salted buttered popcorn cookie with Swedish fish. I know, it sounds crazy, but inspiration comes in so many forms.

Her job in children's media wasn't giving her the creative outlet she desired. So she started baking.

**Expert Tip**: Jennifer says take a look into your local Small Business Association for support on creating your business plan, and all of their other resources.

The flavors of Fatty Cakes are original and interesting to say the least.

  • Sailor Jerry Dark n Stormy sandwich cookie
  • Drunken Piglet
  • The Betty Jo (A red velvet sandwich cookie)
  • The Bacon Chip
  • The Original- Chocolate Chips, Pretzels, Potato Chips, and Chocolate Sandwich Cookie Pieces
  • Her co-packer reigned her in a bit to streamline the cookies that can be ordered online. This allows Fatty Cakes to offer only their best products, and maintain business at the same time. The practice of offering only the best cookies keeps waste to a minimum and controls inventory costs. Jennifer has the ability to raise some of the old flavors from the dead for her special customers.

    One of the more specialized products you can order from Fatty Cakes NY is the 8 inch cookie cake with personalized edible image placed on top. The 8 inch cookie cakes are layered with flavored frostings. These are great for dessert bars and fun events.

    When Jennifer started taking her baking from hobby to "real business" she learned the importance of communication with business connections to make sure the products are made and packaged correctly. She uses photographs and spec recipes to ensure quality during the production process.

    Jennifer has recently moved with her family to Florida, and hopes to find space to open a Fatty Cakes NY brick and mortar storefront.
