MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - The Whimsy Cookie Company, 4704 Poplar Ave., earned a perfect 100 on its Feb. 19 health inspection.

"We are the only sugar cookie place in Memphis," said co-owner Laurie Suriff. "If you think it, we can make it."

They make customized sugar cookies to the stars! Tim McGraw, Tom Hanks, Miranda Lambert, VH-1, the Memphis Grizzlies -- you can count them all as Whimsy customers.

Even co-owner Collins Tuohy is a star. That's Collins TUOHY, as in the daughter of Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy of The Blind Side fame, the book/movie about the Tuohy family adopting football start Michael Oher.

She admits the name recognition helps get customers in the door.

"When people come in the door, they ask me, 'How's Ashay?  How's Michael?  What's going on with your parents?'" Tuohy said. "And that's great because we want them to feel like they're coming into their grandmother's kitchen, and we're making them some cookies they're going to take to another family member."

Families can have cookies custom-made for any occasion. "We just screen-printed a mom's sonogram on to her cookies for her baby shower," said Tuohy.

Customers can also buy cookies right out of the retail counter, from chocolate-covered Oreos to a sugar cookie dinosaur.

"Flawless, delicious, delectable," said event designer Olivia Ward, a regular customer and vendor. "All of the above!"
