Chua Cookie
Arlene Chua is a NYC based cookie artist and the owner of Chua Cookie. A self-proclaimed “baking banker”, Arlene juggles a full-time job as a Senior Analyst for a Private Bank on Wall Street alongside her passion for midnight cookie decorating. She truly is a banker by day and a baker by night! Born in the Philippines, Arlene immigrated to America when she was just a little girl and grew up baking alongside her traditional Filipina mother. In 2016, after losing her mother to cancer, Arlene discovered her true talent in sugar artistry as she turned to cookie decorating as a therapeutic outlet for her grief. She decided to immerse herself in learning all tricks of the trade and in less than a few years’ time, Arlene earned several accolades. She appeared in two Food Network televised competitions, placed in several National Cookie Competitions and was featured on the cover of The NY Times Food Section. When Arlene isn’t decorating cookies, you can find her at home cuddling her two furry babies, a Pit Bull and Chihuahua. She also attends shopper’s anonymous and is desperately trying to overcome her addiction of hoarding cookie cutters and collecting red sole heels.
