The Gourmet Cookie Experience:
Erin Borja's cookies are no ordinary treats. She has taken classic cookie staples, like chocolate chip and Oreos, and elevated them to a gourmet level. Her Gourmet Chocolate Chip Cookies and Oreo Cheesecake Cookies strike the perfect balance between soft and chewy, making them irresistible right out of the oven and still delicious even days later.

Favorite Cookie: Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Erin's heart belongs to chocolate chip cookies. The entire process, from making the dough from scratch to savoring the aroma as they bake in the oven, feels like a warm hug. Her chocolate chip cookie recipe holds a special place in her heart, as it was the first recipe she researched and developed herself, marking the beginning of her culinary journey.
Favorite Cookie Tip: Chilling the Dough:
Erin's favorite cookie tip is to chill the dough overnight or longer. She emphasizes that the flavor develops even better as the dough rests. Patience truly pays off when it comes to creating the perfect cookie.
Favorite Cookie Memory: Disneyland's Delights:
One of Erin's fondest cookie memories revolves around her visits to Disneyland. Whenever she and her best friend strolled down Main Street, they made it a point to enjoy their favorite cookies. It was during one of these magical moments that her friend expressed a desire to find a bakery nearby that sold a variety of delicious gourmet cookies. Erin had a lightbulb moment and couldn't stop thinking about opening her own cookie bakery. This dream eventually led to the birth of FLAVERIN.
The Journey to FLAVERIN:
Erin's journey in the world of baking has been a delicious adventure. From making instant ramen at age 7 to experimenting with French macarons at 13, she continued to expand her culinary repertoire. At 16, she gained a reputation as the "girl who bakes" or the "girl who sells brownies" with her famous three-layer brownies. The idea of opening her own bakery became a constant daydream.
During the pandemic at 19, Erin dedicated her time to recipe development, resulting in the creation of FLAVERIN. While cookies became her newfound love, at 20, she embarked on her first cake decorating job. Cakes quickly stole her heart, and she honed her skills to offer custom cakes through FLAVERIN. The endless creativity in cake design and the joy of being a part of various celebrations have made cakes her current favorite creation.
