Edible Arts

Hi, everyone!! I'm Caroline. I'm new here and ready to learn from all these gifted and talented people here. I did professional courses in cakes, attended cookie classes, and also did master classes in royal icing. I have a small cake and cookie business in the comfort of my studio and I love not wanting to wake up wee hours on a clock-in and out time machine in the corporate's world of 20 over years.

Red Metallic Dragees?

Forum: Suppliers
Joanna (Cookie Mojo)
Hi, folks! I've seen some pictures of cookies and cakes online with red metallic dragees on them, but I can't seem to find them anywhere to purchase. My usual suppliers up here in Toronto say they can't get them in that colour . . . not even in pearl, never mind metallic. Just plain red. Has anyone ever seen them?Read More...

Hi, I make simple old-school cookies, i.e., butter cookies, oatmeal-raisin, etc. I cannot for the life of me find a cookie business name that represents me - I've gone thru about 3 of them already. My customers on my FB page must think I'm nuts LOL. I am thinking about making and selling cookies in a jar. I'm trying to come up with ways do it. Has anyone on here ever experienced selling these type of products? Anyone else on here that sells the same type of cookies? Footnote - I am an...Read More...

2017 Cake Masters Magazine Awards Winners Announced!

Julia M. Usher
Woo hoo! The results are finally in! I know firsthand what a grueling experience the judging process was, as I had the privilege (?!) of scouring 40 super-qualified portfolios, along with 11 other judges, to make the final determinations. What a challenge that was! The judges' individual rankings in 10 categories were filed about a month ago, and then tallied by the folks at Cake Masters , leading to the awards announcements made last night at the 2017 Cake Masters Magazine Awards in...Read More...

Hi, all, Just a quick note to let you know that the Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #25 recap will post sometime between November 11 and 15, rather than in its usual Saturday Spotlight slot on November 11. In addition, the next challenge (#26) is likely to be posted on December 2 or December 3 rather than the week following the previous (#25) recap. Let me assure you, these delays have nothing to do with @Bakerloo Station, our marvelous challenge host, and have everything to do...Read More...
