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! As you'll soon see, both artists' site submissions* are bolder than bold, with super-saturated colors that will knock your socks off. Yet, their color palettes and themes are completely different. (Though, even with these differences, one could argue that they're a match made in heaven - after all, who wouldn't...Read More...

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...

Important Reminder about Copying and Posting Characters without Permission

Julia M. Usher
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...

Posting Images - Please Read Before You Post!

Julia M. Usher
Hi, all! Before posting images or videos to the Clips area, please review the site's Terms of Use , as well as all of the following posting rules.

New Craftsy Class with Flour Box Bakery

Julia M. Usher
Hey, all, I just spotted this "new" Craftsy class from Ann Yorks , aka Flour Box Bakery, and thought you production-oriented decorators might be especially interested. ("New" is in quotes only because I'm not sure how truly new it is; it's just new to me.) This course seems to focus less on decorating technique and more on how to set up and manage your work process for maximum efficiency, which is critical for anyone who sells cookies, of course. As always, if you purchase this course via...Read More...

What Topics to Cover in a Mother-Daughter Class?

Two "New" Craftsy Cookie Decorating Classes!

Julia M. Usher
Actually, I'm not sure how completely new these classes are, but they're new since I last looked at the Craftsy site, which was probably a few months ago.

(Y ou'll also find these images/links in the "Resources" area of this site, under "Online Classes", and in the right hand column of many...Read More...

Classes - Online or In-Person?

Cger
Hello Julia,  I am so grateful to have found you and your amazing site.  I am new and have one question.  The classes that are listed,  do we physically need to be in that "country" to attend the class in person?  Or can we attend online?  I don't know where on your site this information is found.  Thanks.      Read More...

"New" Craftsy Cookie Class! 50% Off!

Julia M. Usher
Actually, I'm not sure how new this Craftsy class is, but it's new to me, and it looks great! While some of us were on the subject of creative cutter use earlier today (in this forum topic ), this class by Georganne Bell of LilaLoa came up. In this class , Georganne talks a lot about the creative design process and how to use additive and subtractive techniques to come up with new shapes using your existing stock of cutters. Sounds great, right?! Better yet, it's 50% off, as...Read More...
