Seeking CookieCon 2017 Correspondents

Julia M. Usher
Hey, everyone. Like last year, I'm seeking one or two people to serve as CookieCon 2017 correspondents - meaning I'm looking for folks who would be interested in reporting on their experiences at CookieCon (while at CookieCon) to those back at home. The reporting could be in the form of photo posts (like these from last year's event ) or blog posts (like those here by last year's correspondents: @BAKRGAL aka Barb Florin, @JenniBakes4U, and @Sugar Cookie Momma, Inc.).Read More...

As Charles M. Schulz once said, " All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt."

I guarantee you'll fall head over heels as soon as you see them! And I do mean "sets", plural! We're super fortunate to have not one, but two site contributions for February, which will be taking turns in the spotlight.Read More...

Need Help Finding Monogram Font

Joanie
I was asked to make bridal shower cookies with a three-letter monogram. I will need to use my Kopykake because I cannot write on a cookie without it!! Question - I want a monogram that has three initials where the center initial is larger than the other two. I'm looking thru different online font resources and when I select "monogram" they are all the same size. Any idea how I can change that, so the middle letter is larger? Or is what I'm looking for called something else? Thanks so much.Read More...
