Sweet Mae’s Cookies was featured on Essence.com on November 10, 2021 as a part of their holiday gift giving guide.
I wasn’t at all surprised in discovering that Black entrepreneurs own and operate so many awesome bakeries across the country. Yes, there is an incredible sweet potato pie baker in Patterson, New Jersey, and there’s a James Beard Award nominee in Dallas, with delicious blondie Christmas Trees, just in time for the holidays and there’s a talented mother-daughter team, hailing from Trinidad and based in Prince George’s County, Maryland that produces the most scrumptious, rum-soaked Black Cake, also just in time for the holidays. I so appreciated the diversity of backgrounds and specialties that I uncovered down this sweet bakery rabbit hole. These three are just a taste of the glorious bunch below.
“Sweet Mae” is Tiffany Biddle’s late, beloved great-grandmother and her online baking business is the direct result of an ancestry of gifted cooks and bakers.
Her premium stuffed cookies “with a thick Southern accent,” come in a variety of delicious options, including Sea Salt Chocolate Chunk and Lemon White Chip.
