Recording of "Cookiers Helping Cookiers" Zoom Call - May 30, 2020 Featured

· in Important Admin Notices · 0 replies
Hi, all! We had a fun and fabulous Zoom call today, and you can find the recording here in our Video Clips area. Note : I started recording after a brief intro of our host Dotty (aka @SugarDotCookies ) and an overview of the call's goals and Zoom features, so I apologize that this context is missing from the video. As a reminder, the call was a continuation of our first “Cookiers Helping Cookiers in the Time of COVID-19” chat conducted in April . We used the time to connect, face to face...Read More...

Recent Site Upgrade - A Change to How to Follow Posts! Featured

· in Important Admin Notices · 0 replies
Hi, all! The site recently underwent an upgrade, which impacted some key things on the back-end of the site (that only I see) and one thing that all users should know. It's important, because it affects how you can follow content (photos, forums, and blog posts) that you like . In the past, there were basic "follow" buttons near the top or end of content posts, which you could click to follow, or un-click to un-follow. When you followed content, you would receive a notification (aka an...Read More...

Is there a specific reason for this? Does it make it easier or affect the outcome of the design? Any tips/tricks for a first timer? Thanks in advance!Read More...

Surprise! Thanks to @Icingsugarkeks (aka Gabi) who did the graphic design for this month's banner and backdrop, we've got four June site artists instead of our usual one. A HUGE shout-out to Gabi for having the insight to see I was short on site art submissions and the clever idea to honor our site contributors and their work! Our contributors are often buried in getting out tutorials, surveys, chats, and other content for this site (not to mention doing all else that they do in life). In...Read More...

Charge for Cutter?

· in Pricing · 9 replies Julia M. Usher Aproned Artist Julia M. Usher L Julia M. Usher
I get orders for one dozen cookies, mostly. A good number of my customers want specific cutters - the majority of which I am not able to duplicate with hand-cutting. With my skill level, I keep my cookie prices at the $3 - $3.50 per. To add the cost of the cutter plus shipping (average is approximately $10) that leaves about $26 - $32 per dozen cookies. I never specifically calculate pre-decorating labor for making, rolling and cutting dough, making and mixing icing, baking, etc. - but I...Read More...
