Hi, everyone! I've got a great surprise for you!
@Aproned Artist, aka Samantha Yacovetta, has officially joined our team of Cookie Connection contributors as of today! As you probably know from seeing her work on this site, she's made a name for herself in the cookie world with her precise work, elegant designs, and keen attention to showstopping details. So it only makes sense then that her bimonthly cookie tutorials will focus on the special little details that make big statements in cookie design. Please join me in congratulating Samantha on her new position. I am sure you will love her inaugural Every Little Detail post! It comes just in time for summer wedding season too!
You can read that post here, and you can find all past Every Little Detail posts under the blog collection Every Little Detail with Aproned Artist (natch!), under "Blog" in the main navigation line.

Samantha Yacovetta, the decorator behind Aproned Artist, began cookie decorating in 2013. While working at a local bakery, Samantha became captivated by cookie art when a customer requested princess-themed cookies. Attracted initially to the precision of cookie decorating, Samantha soon found that the limitless design opportunities turned it into her artistic passion. Samantha began regularly stocking the bakery case with decorated cookies and has since transitioned to running her own company, Aproned Artist, a cottage food operation. She enjoys the challenge and inspiration of creating designs that feel personal and unique to each customer. Samantha lives in San Jose, California, USA.
