Now located in DES MOINES, IA, in the quaint little neighborhood of Beaverdale, we will be offering classes and holiday pre order cookies for local pick up. We will dearly miss offering our cookies in Firestone, CO. Thank you to our Colorado customers and friends for your years of support!
Madison Wattier is a homeschooling mom of 4 and interior design enthusiast. Reading on the front porch or socializing over a charcuterie board and rich chocolate cake are her favorite ways to spend leisure time! You'll often find her changing the wreath for the upcoming holiday, or searching for new techniques to incorporate in her upcoming cookie set. With a love for learning, you'll rarely find she's content with where she's at. Madison is on a constant search for something unique to add to her home and bakes, and has a deep desire to create warmth and comfort through dessert and environment.
We are a small home-based bakery located in Des Moines, IA, operating under the Iowa Cottage Foods Law. We proudly offer our products for pick up or delivery.
Growing up, Madison spent days around Christmas time, every year, baking all of the old family recipes with her mom and grandma. Those peanut butter balls and M&M cookies sparked her love for edible chemistry. If she wasn't experimenting in the kitchen, you could find her creating any and all types of art. In 2006, as a middle school German project, Madison combined the two to create a Black Forest Cherry Cake. This was the first taste of the true, unending potential of baking.
In 2016, after having 3 daughters, her love of cake grew and she began making edible art for all the family birthday parties. While raising 3 girls and nannying 3 boys in March 2018, Madison sold her first cake. This is where Nanny's Cakes and Bakes was born.
It wasn't until Christmas 2019 that Madison discovered the mini edible canvas, sugar cookies. They quickly became her favorite, and now are the bulk of Nanny's work. The ability to design and execute a detailed, delicious dessert is fascinating.
We operate under the Iowa Cottage Food Law and all products are for local pick up or delivery only.
Products are produced in a home kitchen that is not subject to state licensure or inspection and that may also process common food allergens such as tree nuts, peanuts, eggs, soy, wheat, milk, fish, and crustacean shellfish.
