Maddie Haydon


Maddie Haydon, owner of MaddieKakes Bake Shop, is a cookie-decorating extraordinaire specializing in decorated sugar cookies. You can always find her dreaming about cookie designs or saying, “That would make a cute cookie!” She is a self-taught cookie artist who believes that anyone can learn to make beautiful cookies to bring to parties and events! Maddie’s background as an elementary school teacher lends itself well to the “cookie classroom”--she breaks things down into small digestible (pun intended) chunks to make what seems like a complex cookie design feel like a breeze. Her cookie decorating classes teach the skills you need to feel confident that you can decorate cookies like the pros!
