The Baker

Michelle can still remember falling asleep to the sound of a kitchen mixer the nights before her birthdays as a child. Though her mom introduced her to the world of baking, Michelle's personal journey took off after college, when she would go on her weekly grocery runs with the primary question of “What new thing can I bake for my colleagues this week?” Various baking experiments appeared frequently in the faculty lounge at the school where Michelle taught.

After becoming a mom in the thick of the pandemic, Michelle launched Sweet Seconds Bakehouse. She returned to full-time teaching in the fall of 2023 but is excited to use summer vacation to bring sweets to you and yours.


How long do the cookies last?

The general consensus seems to be that the cookies taste fresh for at least 2-3 days. Keep your cookies in an airtight container at room temperature if you don't eat them on the day of pickup. You can also wrap them in plastic wrap and freeze for up to a month! Thaw by setting out at room temp for a few hours.

Why can't I pick up my cookies sooner?

I'm currently operating on a made-to-order model and also trying to create healthy rhythms of rest in my life. Thank you for your patience and support!

Do you offer shipping?

So sorry! Texas cottage food law requires the direct-to-consumer interaction to be in person. 

Do you offer delivery?

Not currently, but hopefully in the near future! If you would like to meet somewhere to pick up your cookies, indicate that in your order details.

Can I place a large/custom order?

Happy to chat--I bake more than just cookies! Please send a message through the Contact page or email me at with details. I don't do iced cookies, cake pops, or pies.

Are you a professionally trained baker?

No, I'm self-taught, primarily through Google and baking blogs. My favorites include Smitten Kitchen, Broma Bakery, Sally's Baking AddictionThe Candid Appetite, and Joy the Baker. I took one pastry class for fun once years ago!
