Casual Cookie Chat

A place to swap casual cookie stories, like what, if anything, you listen to while decorating? How you handle cookie decorating on top of normal life? How you get into the cookie zone? And so on. Or just a place to say hi!

Please re-read our Terms of Use if you are unclear about any of these rules. Posting images of people is also prohibited due to various privacy laws.

Say Hello to Our May Site Artists!

Julia M. Usher
Yes, you saw that right! We've got not just one, but TWO cookie artists who will be sharing our banner and backdrop in the month of May. You might call it a delicious double feature!

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 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...
