Rookie of the Year

Witney Nielsen of Unconventional Cookies

The Rookie award recognizes someone just starting out that's totally crushing it.⠀
"Seriously, her cookies are THE most creative. Just off the top of my head- she has made a pooping pug cookie that drops sprinkles out, an adorable piñata cookie, insanely creative scary Halloween cookie - they are all so good! They look great but also just elevate the game of what sweet treats can be!"⠀
We can't wait to see where her business takes her & will be her #1 fan along the way. Give it up for Witney!!!
