About the Baker

cookie lady

Hi, I'm Rose, your local cookie lady!  I'm also a wife, a mother of two rambunctious sweethearts, and a former elementary school teacher.

I began baking sugar cookies in 2011, determined to finally decorate some Christmas cookies I could be proud to share.  Well, it took me until Valentine's Day to have something that didn't make me cry, but by then I was hooked.  I've been baking ever since, though I did take a wee break in 2017 to have my beautiful daughter, and again in 2020 when we welcomed our son to the family.  In 2021 I became Bella Rose Pastries LLC and I am so excited to be baking up sweets and treats for the greater San Antonio area.

In my free time (I know, what's that?) I also devour books and love to get out and hike at Friedrich Wilderness Park or Eisenhower Park.  But usually you'll find me tending to two little forces of nature, volunteering at church, or up to my elbows in powdered sugar and flour.

We've been in San Antonio since 2014 and I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather live.  We love being part of the community here and find it's just the right size for our needs.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I look forward to baking for you soon!

All the best,

Rose
