Hi, all! I'm super excited to introduce our next live chat, not only because the featured guest, Chris Taylor, is a fierce competitive baker, but also because this chat marks the first in my CookieCon 2018 interview series!

Say Hello to Our April Site Artist!

Julia M. Usher
Super HUGE thanks to @Ryoko ~Cookie Ave. for sparing us all the tedium of having to see my stenciled cookies in the banner and backdrop again this month! And for sparing us with such a marvelously whimsical banner in her signature story-telling style . . . They're an absolutely adorable pair, aren't they?! As you probably know by now, Ryoko is a veteran site submitter, having already been featured a few times. So in lieu of doing another Cookier Close-up with her this month, I'm...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...

We all have different message-reading tastes, so Cookie Connection has been designed to allow for everyone's individual differences! The site's default email and onsite alert notifications are set to show you most of the site info that you could get notified about, just so you're aware of the site's full functionality. But I recognize that this amount of info may (or may not) be overkill for you. That said, I recommend that you edit your "Notifications" settings as soon as you join the site...Read More...

Best Way to Package Party Favor Cookies?

54mama
Hi all, I'm making cookie favors for my babysitter's wedding shower and trying to sort out the best way to package them. I owe her my sanity and want these to be really special. Each guest will get two 3" diameter cookies. Normally I heat-seal my cookies in 2 mil poly bags, but they don't lend well to adding a bow (the plastic is too thick I think). So, first question...do I put each cookie is its own bag? Or layer them together in one bag? And then, do any of you heat seal and then add...Read More...

Cookie Freshness in Heat-Sealed Poly Bags

54mama
I'm hoping someone can give me some idea of how long cookies will stay fresh in heat-sealed poly bags. I'm making over 100 cookies for party favors for a friend in a few weeks and I'd like to not wait until right before to make them. I'm a hobbyist cookie maker, so I just don't know enough about the packaging/freshness side of things. Will they be good for a week? Longer? Thanks for any insight you can give.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...
