Kiera Stipovich was born and raised in Manhasset, Long Island where her parents still live today.  Kiera graduated from Bucknell University with a degree in Business Management and worked in the corporate world before taking a leap of faith to venture on her own and pursue a passion for baking and creating. Kiera's husband Cole Stipovich studied graphic design at the University of San Francisco and is a photographer by way of his father's photography business. While running their own businesses from their home, they quickly found out how well they compliment each others abilities and became partners in a photography business, Cole + Kiera Photography. (And to be honest, Sweet Kiera could probably be called Sweet Cole + Kiera since Cole contributes so much to the graphic design and printing aspects of the cookie favor business.) Cole and Kiera met and lived in San Francisco for 7 years before a cross-country move to the east coast. They now are based outside of Boston in Concord, Massachusetts. 

Kiera and Cole Stipovich have collaborated together as a husband and wife team on two cookbooks, Ultimate Appetizer Ideabook and most recently, The Couple’s Cookbook (coming November 2019!).

Sweet Kiera specializes in “tastefully inspired cookie favors.” 

"I create delicious sugar cookies hand-decorated with royal icing and neatly presented in cellophane bags with custom-designed card stock tags. Sweet Kiera cookies are made with wholesome, premium ingredients and are baked fresh to order. More than just yummy, the cookies are thoughtful works of edible art. Each cookie favor is created to coordinate with your unique event, pulling inspiration from different design elements of your special occasion.

Sweet Kiera cookies can be used as party favors, a centerpiece, seating cards, gifts, or as a show-stopping addition to any dessert table. These are beautiful custom party favors that your guests can admire and truly enjoy when the celebration is over (no pricey knick-knacks to collect dust, thank you!)."
