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...

Where to Find Nice Cookie Boxes in Canada?

Hi, folks! I've searched the forums and didn't really see anything on this topic, so I'm hoping some fellow Canadian cookie decorators can help me out! I am looking for some nice looking, windowed, cookie boxes. I love the BRP Box Shop boxes, but the shipping to my location is almost double the cost of the boxes themselves. I am currently using pie boxes from Bulk Barn but they are often too small and do not have a window. Any suggestions? I'm open to ordering online as long as the shipping...Read More...

Adhering Cookies to Grease-Resistant Cookie Cards

My sister and I are preparing for our first big event. We want to offer some themed cookie packages which would contain 2 or 3 cookies packaged together.

Thanks, KateRead More...

This is the first time this has happened to me. I packed the box very carefully inside another box with several layers of bubble wrap. I am really shocked that so many were broken. The customer is demanding that I send her replacements. How do I handle this...Read More...
