Hi, all! As I mentioned in an earlier post, several Cookie Connection members were nominated for the first-ever Edible Artists Global Awards (EAGA), which honor excellence in various categories of the edible arts. (To read more about the mission of the EAGA, click here.)

Well, just today, the EAGA judges whittled down the long lists of nominees to finalists in each of seven "Most Inspiring" awards categories and a "Most Innovative Product" category. Congrats to Cookie Connection member @The Cookie Lab - Bolachas decoradas arte (aka Marta Torres) for placing in the Royal Icing category and to @Creative Cookier for placing in the Most Innovative Product category!

The ultimate winner in each of these eight categories will be determined by online popular vote between now (October 21) and November 7. The polls are officially open, so don't delay: jump online now to cast your vote! Please consider lending your support to our deserving Cookie Connection members, and please spread the word to your friends and family by sharing this post all over social media!

I had the privilege of taking a class with Master Cookier, Marta Torres, on 2D royal icing technique. Not only is she a talented and gifted artist, she is a true teacher. Her passion transcends to her students. She has amazing patience and her vocation is truly that of an educator. She is able to transform the most mediocre of students (such as myself when I was only 4months new to cookie decorating) into artists. I am inspired by her work everyday. She sets the bar high for all others- her work is as beautiful as her soul… she is kind, she is creative, and she passes on her knowledge with such passion. I am grateful for the opportunity to have been a student of this truly gifted Master Cookie Artist. Best of luck to Marta!

I´d like to thank you Julia for your words and for encouraging members to vote. Cookie Connection was, as I already mentioned to you, where I started. There is a Before and After Cookie Connection on my Cookie Journey. It was here where step by step I started to get confidence on my work and probably started to get a direction. 

I´m very happy indeed with this nomination and would like to Congratulate The Creative Cookier as well, and Wishing you All the best and Good Luck for Artist of the Year USA.

Thank you so much everyone!

I couldn't have said it better myself. I agree wholeheartedly with you!

It is my pleasure and privilege to have met Marta thanks to Cookie Connection! 

I wish you best of luck, Julia! Congrats to Creative Cookier and congrats to Marta Torres. I had the pleasure to meet Marta and attend her class two weeks ago in Milan. She is an extremely generous teacher, she gave us students all that she could! It has been an amazing experience.
