Say Hello to Our November 2020 Site Artist! Featured

· in Important Admin Notices · 14 replies IcingsugarkeksIcingsugarkeksIcingsugarkeksPUDING FARMJulia M. Usher
I'm fully expecting our November site artist to be completely surprised by this announcement. You see, that site artist is none other than @Icingsugarkeks , aka Gabi, our official Site Art Stylist who now, quite wonderfully, prepares all of our monthly site art by recomposing cookie photos that she finds here. But . . . it's not what you might be thinking . . . Gabi, of course, did not select herself for this month! Oh, no! Instead, she selected me and a 3-D woodland cookie I did last year.Read More...

Best Cello Bags?

· in Individual Packaging · 3 replies EconladyKimbercakesEconlady
Is there a brand or type of individual wrapping bag, like a cellophane bag, that works well for royal icing cookies? I noticed when I wrapped some this weekend that the parts of the bag that were touching the icing were kind of sticking to it and discoloring the icing. I’ve never seen that happen before.Read More...

Update on Member Portfolios - Good News!

· in Important Admin Notices · 3 replies Dolce FloManuIcingsugarkeks
Hi, all. If you caught my forum post from earlier this week, you know that the last site upgrade (sadly) obliterated member portfolios on member profiles. Fortunately, after I complained vociferously about this change, CrowdStack, my tech support team, reinstated the feature today. It is a bit different in look, but basically contains all the same material that was once under your "Activity/Content" stream.

Cookie Dehydrator Help, Please!

· in Tools · 6 replies D IcingsugarkeksEconladyJulia M. Usher S
I just started to learn how to decorate cookies and don’t want to invest in a separate dehydrator appliance just yet. I have an an instant pot air fryer lid (which I’ve been using for cooking/air frying only) and noticed it has a dehydrator function. Has anyone ever tried or have any experience with the instant pot dehydrator to quickly set the royal icing? Any feedbacks would be very much appreciated. Thanks!Read More...
