How to Edit or Delete Your Own Content

Julia M. Usher
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...

Airbrushing 21 Dozen Cookies

Cottage Celebrations
Hi everyone! I just took an order for 1000 cookies for a business celebrating 50 years!! Of those, we are going to try air brushing using a stencil or stamping 21 dozen sugar cookies with a fun tire track or tire. I'm new to air brushing but thought it might be easier to air brush than to stamp one at a time. Customer said to do whatever works, so have room to try different options. Question: How is the easiest way to mass produce 21 dozen cookies and also air brush?!! Cookie shapes will...Read More...
