Introducing Our March Site Artist

Julia M. Usher
March conjures up many varied images for me, ranging from raucous leprechauns and blustery winds to softer, gentler harbingers of spring, such as the season's first birdsongs and the muted pinks and greens of hellebores peeking up through my forgotten fall leaves. This month's site art certainly falls more towards the latter end of that spectrum (my personal preference, BTW) with its barely-there spring-y hues and graceful scrolls and brush embroidery . . . And who, pray tell, is the...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...

Christmas is the time for cookie collaborations, it seems! Here's one , organized by member Beth Bougie of Love Bug Cakes and Cookies that's especially striking - a collection of 40 or so cookie ornaments, all designed by different cookiers, and gracing  a wooden tree!

Hi, all, just a little cookie/human interest story for some extra motivation. If you've ever dreamed of being on national TV and competing in a Food Network Challenge, then this story is testament to the fact that it pays to follow your dreams! Earlier this summer, in June to be exact, fellow cookier Tarsha Joyner of Mrs. Joy's Absolutely Fabulous Treats (pictured above, left) saw a casting call for a Christmas Cookie Challenge posted here on Cookie Connection . She seized the...Read More...

Susan Moniz
Hello all, Like many of you, I wanted to be involved with the ALS effort.

It is going to be a crazy week filled with 7 days of fantastic prizes just waiting to be handed out. Each day I will be giving away at least $50 worth in prizes.
