Back in 2009 I stumbled on a picture of a decorated cookie and absolutely hadto try making some for myself! I started practicing with whatever designs I could think up. I started with a royal icing recipe in an old cookbook and had to stumble my way through figuring out how this all worked! This was before decorated cookies were mainstream, and I quickly discovered how difficult it was to find good tools and helpful tutorials. In the early days I exacto-knifed all of my cookie shapes (or bent shapes out of strips of tin!) and hand cut my own stencils out of cardstock. In 2012 I stepped it up and started designing stencils on the computer and used a die cut machine to cut them out. Other cookie artists started asking where I was buying my tools, so in 2014 I opened up shop! Killer Zebras Bakery was the name I went by back when I sold cookies but I couldn't give up the name I loved so much, and so Killer Zebras began!
For years we've been an online-only store, but in June 2021 we are opening the doors to our storefront in Maple Valley, WA!! We're so excited to continue to grow and add more to the products you know and love!
