Lucky us! In the month of May, we're continuing our live chat series with CookieCon 2017 instructors, and we've got another wonderful featured guest for you: Teri Lewis of @tweets...cookie connection (completely unrelated to this Cookie Connection, BTW)!
Though I was first dazzled by Teri's signature sparkly cookies at the CookieCon premiere some three or four years ago, Teri's medium at CookieCon 2017 was chocolate! There, she explored how to make dimensional elements with both modeling chocolate and the regular melted variety!
In this chat, you'll have a chance to explore the marriage of chocolate and cookies with Teri, as well as learn more about her business and other signature decorating methods! In the meantime, check out her bio (below), her Facebook page, her site (currently under redevelopment), and her profile right here on Cookie Connection!
Teri Lewis has always been one of those artsy girls with a passion for whimsical design, painting, doodling, and playing with people. After college, she married her longtime sweetheart and opted for a stay-at-home mom/entrepreneur gig! For the next 20 years, she contracted her faux painting and floral design skills to the interior design community in Denver, Colorado, USA, where she lives. As an active volunteer and busy mom of two, Teri soon became known as "the cookie mom" by baking cutesy sugar cookies for every school, holiday, church, charity, family, and kids' sporting function known to mankind.
Once the kids were off to college, Teri enrolled in the "YouTube University" of fancy cookie decorating and, after six months, launched tweets...cookie connection, her cookie business, in 2012. The cookie was now her new canvas, and home cookie parties became the place for building connections with friends, organizations, and community businesses. She is proud to have defined her artisanship with the help of the great cookiers with whom she studied at CookieCon, and is humbled by the design awards she has received from the cookie community! Her cookies are recognizable in design . . . always full of sparkle, glitter, luster dust, and dots! [EDITOR'S NOTE: And chocolate, too! ]
If you can't make the chat, no worries! You can log your advance questions now by following the instructions at the top of this chat page. (As always, it's super helpful for questions to be logged early, so our guests are able to prepare answers beforehand and to field more questions during the live chat time.)
Please note that any advance questions will reveal one at a time, in the order received, only after the chat goes live. Do not expect questions or answers to appear immediately.
Also, as with all of these chats, you have a special opportunity to see inside the minds of some extremely talented decorators. I challenge you to do your homework and push our guests with unexpected - maybe even tough - questions!
Again, I truly hope to "see" you there!
