Hi, all! As I'm sure most of our site veterans are well aware, @Laegwen, known in real life as Leoni Eckart, has been an official Cookie Connection contributor for just over a year! She made her inaugural blog post on May 12, 2016, and has been posting her inspired cookie tutorials under the Get Inspired with Laegwen section of our blog ever since. Lucky us! Words really can't express how appreciative I am of Leoni's consistently high quality work and commitment to...Read More...

Say Hello to Our May Site Artists!

Julia M. Usher
Yes, you saw that right! We've got not just one, but TWO cookie artists who will be sharing our banner and backdrop in the month of May. You might call it a delicious double feature! As you'll soon see, both artists' site submissions* are bolder than bold, with super-saturated colors that will knock your socks off. Yet, their color palettes and themes are completely different. (Though, even with these differences, one could argue that they're a match made in heaven - after all, who wouldn't...Read More...

Hi, all, I've been receiving an unusually large number of questions about how members can edit or delete their own content. It's super important for you to know how to do this, as I typically do not edit posts for people, unless I happen to see a misclassified image or other typo. It can also take me several hours to days to respond to site inquiries like this, as I work several other jobs. That being said, your surest bet for getting a quick answer is to familiarize yourself with our site...Read More...
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...

SugarDeaux Quick Dry Royal Icing

Karen-SugarDeaux
*This is the quickest RI to make and the fastest drying! Cookies can be iced, bagged and ready to go in 3-5 hours with no dehydrator. A couple notes of interest: This RI recipe mixes to a semi-stiff consistency. (Think buttercream.) You can separate into individual containers and add a litlle water till you achieve the consistency you desire. If you want very stiff RI to do piped flowers, etc. add an additional 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. This icing will dry to a semi- matte finish with a...Read More...

Hi, gals - I have a somewhat interesting situation and I'm not quite sure how to respond. I found myself wondering if other cookie artists have ever been in the same situation and how they have responded . . . so here it goes! Recently, I had an order inquiry for bachelorette party cookies. She texted me a photo of what she was interested in and the color scheme was very cute - black, white, pink, and gold - and the cookies were decorated well. The only problem is that there were several...Read More...

Fondant Fruit Molds

Forum: Tools
Kimberlie
I know this site is more about cookies than cakes, but I have a friend, and I need to make a cake for her one-year-old's birthday that is themed fruit. I can't find enough fondant molds in one place. If anyone knows where I can find them in the US, so I don't have to wait on customs, please let me know. I don't have much time. Thank you.Read More...

I'm just curious what size tip everyone uses to flood their cookies. I've always used a size 5 tip. When I went to visit Hayley of HayleyCakes and Cookies, she was flooding with a tip 10; it was waaayyyyy faster. The problem I'm running into with using a larger tip is that I have way more air bubbles than when I use a smaller one.Read More...

Meringue Powder vs. Color Flow Comparisons Requested

For my first ingredient purchase, I opted for Wilton Color Flow because it was less expensive, and had fewer odd and difficult to pronounce ingredients than meringue powder (MP). Did a bit of research and learned that MP also has cream of tartar, so when I made my first batch by the MP royal icing (RI) recipe inside the lid, I shorted the 3T Color Flow measurement by 1T and added 1T of cream of tartar.  Everything turned out just fine and I was able to practice flood many MANY cookies...Read More...

Superhero Cookies for a Little Boy

TheTailoredCookie
As a mother, when I hear that another mother has a dilemma, my heart wants to reach out and help. Recently, I received a request from a woman who is currently in Afghanistan serving in the US Military. She was very brief in her message but stated that she wanted to send her four year old son an assortment of his favorite super hero cookies for him and his  friends to have for his Halloween pre-school party which she cannot attend (because she's in the military) but she wanted him to...Read More...
