Hello, I’m Lailanie

Washington State Cottage Law Operator

I am the founder and creator of Sweet Lailanie LLC. I am an educator by day and cookie artist by night. I have always loved the creative process and making beautiful things by hand, but this new passion allows me to share my work for others to enjoy.

It all started in the summer of 2020 when my kindergarten program was held remotely online due to COVID lockdowns. To reward my students for their hard work and perseverance I decided to make them some cookies (image below) related to our unit on the solar system. This was the spark that started my journey that has become Sweet Lailanie (lay-la-nee).

The business name holds a special meaning for me because it is a song (Sweet Leilani by Bing Crosby) that my late father, who himself was an artist and small business owner, would playfully sing to me. He always encouraged my creative side and lived by the motto “Go for it!” - and that’s what I have decided to do.


Thank you for your interest and support of my small business. I look forward to working with you in creating something beautiful for your next celebration.
