Huge Announcement - Julia M. Usher’s Cookie Art Competition™ Goes Virtual!

 

MARK YOUR CALENDARS, COOKIERS! I’ve decided the show must go on! My cookie art competition couldn’t take place as usual in February at That Takes the Cake due to COVID, but it IS going fully virtual in 2021! Recharging creativity by pushing boundaries is always a good thing - and now more than ever!

I expect to announce judges in the coming few weeks, and for the call for entries (with theme announcements) to open in mid- to late-June. The competition has two categories, both 2-D and 3-D cookies, and cash prizes already totaling $3,000 - and growing!

If you’re interested in joining the sponsors of this landmark event, please contact me at sweetlife@juliausher.com for details. NOTE: Julia M. Usher’s Cookie Art Competition™ will return to That Takes the Cake in 2022.

First Announcement - FINAL

Congratulations!!! Not only for the event, which is awesome, but for your courage and open mind to tackle new adventures! This is so wonderful to hear!👏👏👏♥️♥️

Thanks. It's been a challenging year as far as new adventures. I had a big one fail (airbrush food coloring line) recently, while still in the stages of product development (the colorings from the company were just not working as they should after multiple tests). And I also have an overhaul of my personal site and a JV with another company all in the works. I am hoping the latter two projects are more successful than the first. The competition will largely be run on new database software on Cookie Connection, which is quite powerful and should make the entry receipt and judging pretty darn automated and relatively easy. I upgraded Cookie Connection about a month ago to get this feature enhancement, but it really won't be visible to members 'til the competition launches.

What a wonderful way to continue on with such a fabulous event Julia!! I love your continuing nimble approach to working in a changed world due to covid. Your ingenuity is appreciated by so many and gives an opportunity to countless cookiers who would not be able to travel to a physical event. I anticipate a HUGE success in 2021!! Congratulations ❤️

I’m so sorry to hear about the fails and setbacks, dear Julia, which have only resulted in your continuous desire and will to pull through! You are so inspiring! Thanks so much♥️♥️

Wow Julia! That's amazing!! Would like to participate ❤️❤️

That's one great thing about doing the competition virtually. Anyone anywhere can enter.

Amazing! I am waiting more details about subjects!

Great! I'm targeting an opening (with announcement of themes and rules) in mid- to late-June! I have some technical details to sort out first!
