Kara Gentle Martin and Family - the heart of Gentle Confections

Living The Sweet Life

Hi! I am Kara Gentle Martin the proud Cookie Designer of Gentle Confections.


I am your FLAVOR-OBSESSED baker located in McKinney, TX focused on decorated sugar cookies to bring sensational sweets to all of life’s celebrations. Confections are my spirit animal - rich in sugar and carbohydrates. 

I am a sugar addict. Sugar Cookies are my favorite. I set out to find a different cookie option. One with more flavor and a royal icing consistency that did not resemble that of concrete.


EUREKA! I found it!

I bake from my home kitchen in and through life's crazy moments. My kitchen truly is the heart of my home.  I am a wife, a stay-at-home - homeschool mom of two awesome kiddos, and the fur-mama of two sweet rescue pups.

On my “downtime” when the kitchen table isn't cluttered with books, math, and/or art projects - I bake. Cookie decoration is my creative outlet. My self-care. It is my calm and rest. I am thrilled to serve you and your sweet tooth.

Welcome to Gentle Confections.
