RHS senior and entrepreneur Kelsey Garcia took her decorating abilities beyond friends and family by selling custom decorated cookies via social media.

Garcia was originally introduced to the idea while watching online videos.

“I saw videos on Instagram and I wanted to try it,” Garcia said. “So I tried it and I really liked it.”

Garcia’s love of cookie decorating began back in December of 2017, yet due to her skill, she has already received multiple offers to purchase her cookies.

In order to promote her business, she also runs an Instagram page with completed projects and short videos detailing the entire decorating process.

English teacher Jamie Handling was Garcia’s first customer.

“I ordered cookies from Kelsey right before Easter because my family was having a family function and I had to bring dessert, so I thought, ‘what better to bring than Kelsey’s cookies?’” Handling said. “They were beautiful and delicious.”

Garcia felt that Handling’s purchase helped others gain awareness of her business.

“That really got me out there and now a bunch of people have been asking me about [the cookies],” Garcia said.

One of Garcia’s largest purchases was for a track team from the University of Hawaii. Garcia had to make over 60 cookies decorated in an assortment of rainbows, as well as the University’s logo.
Garcia sells cookies on her Instagram account @kelseyscookiess.
