I am Nikki Benning, the baker, designer, decorator, marketing department, accounting department and owner of The Sweetest Thing. Aside from my business, The Sweetest Things in my life are my kiddos! They are smart, funny, silly, loving, crazy little people and they are my world!
The Sweetest Thing is a true labor of love, and it all began when my children were only 4 years old and 5 months old, as a way to make a little extra money while being able to stay home and raise my kids.
I love baking, and anything that allows me to channel my creativity. After years of creating all sorts of things from quilts and scrapbooks, to party invitations and cakes, I started making and decorating sugar cookies for holidays and school events. Having searched for several years for the right career choice that would allow me to stop teaching and work at home with my family around me, cookies seemed like the perfect solution!
At the end of the day, everyone loves cookies! They can be customized for any occasion, and are one of the few gifts that won’t get thrown in the junk drawer or the trash! And best of all... Cookies are a creative gift that will never be returned!
