Cookie Nook Bakery began as a one woman custom order bakery in a small kitchen located in Cherryfield Maine during 2009. Owner and baker, Vanessa Young discovered her passion for baking while provided treats for her son's Cub Scout Pack and school. Vanessa has over twenty years of experience in professional kitchens and find her happy place in the kitchen. In May of 2018, Vanessa and her boyfriend Dan decided to expand the baking business and purchased Downeast Cheesecakes. Both businesses currently operate out of their new storefront in Cherryfield Maine. When not baking Vanessa is an active volunteer for the Boy Scouts of America, she has been with the Scouting program almost as long as she has been in the kitchen. She currently serves as the District Commissioner, Day Camp Director and Cub Scout Activity Coordinator for the Katahdin Area Council, BSA.
Cookie Nook is proud to provide cakes for the following organization:
Icing Smiles Inc.- is a national nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. We understand that the simple things, like a cake, are luxuries to a family battling illness. Our goal is to create a custom cake for the ill child, or their sibling, that provides a temporary escape from worry and creates a positive memory during a difficult time.
