Upcoming Vacation and Saturday Spotlight Gap

Julia M. Usher
Hi, all! Just a heads-up: next Saturday, I'll be on a short vacation in Argentina, followed by a class there the next Saturday, so I will be unable to post another Spotlight until August 12 . (However, I just posted this week's edition, and it's full of great cookies! If you haven't yet seen it, click here .) My apologies for another gap in coverage, but I'll be sure to make up for it when I get back. We've got another chat, a new challenge, and a Cookier Close-up or two, all coming up very...Read More...
Hi, all, I've been receiving an unusually large number of questions about how members can edit or delete their own content. It's super important for you to know how to do this, as I typically do not edit posts for people, unless I happen to see a misclassified image or other typo. It can also take me several hours to days to respond to site inquiries like this, as I work several other jobs. That being said, your surest bet for getting a quick answer is to familiarize yourself with our site...Read More...
Hi, all, regrettably, I've recently had to delete some images from challenges and other areas of the site due to lack of compliance with Rule #8 of our posting guidelines, which states that artwork (including characters, from Disney, Hasbro, etc.) cannot be copied and posted here without permission from the creator : http://cookieconnection.juliau...READ-BEFORE-YOU-POST In response to those deletions, some members have asked me why so many licensed character cookies exist on the site,...Read More...

A client would like her ocean-themed royal-icing cookies individually packaged in heat-sealed cello bags along with some "sugar sand" -- a mix of white and light brown sugars that look like sand -- to resemble a beach scene. Has anyone tried this, and did the moisture in the sugars have any effect over time on the cookie's royal icing? I'm concerned that it might make the royal icing go soft, smear, or blotch.Read More...

Packaging without Plastic

Biscoot Factory
Hello. I am from India and recently plastic has been banned here (I agree with the decision). I used to pack decorated cookies in sealed cellophane bags, so that they don't go soft soon, but now I am wondering what to do! If anybody has any alternate packaging ideas, kindly let me know. Also how can I pack them in craft paper bags without the paper getting oily? Please help. Thank you.Read More...
