An Update from Manu on "Made by Manu" Tutorial and Challenge #57 Timing


Hi, everyone!

Just a quick update on some matters of timing. I am planning to take off the summer, but I will be back with my Made by Manu tutorials in September.

Also, the current Watch-Learn-Create Challenge #57 deadline has been extended a few weeks until Sunday August 4, 5 pm central time, leaving you even more time to create during what can be busy summer months. Click here for the challenge directions and my kickoff video. I look forward to seeing more fabulous entries! The early submissions have been wonderful!

Ciao, and have a nice summer! πŸ–

Manuela Pezzopane, affectionately called Manu by her friends and family, is the author of the blog feature Made by Manu, where each month she shares the method behind a magical cookie of her own making. In March 2022, Manu also assumed the role of host of our rebranded and reformatted Cookie Connection Challenges: Watch-Learn-Create Series, which debuted in a virtual video format in July 2022. A fan of everything handmade, Manu professes to have tried every possible hobby. However, it wasn’t until the end of 2014, when an American friend invited her to a Christmas cookie exchange, that she first discovered decorated cookies. In 2015, after watching Julia M. Usher's videos and signing up on Cookie Connection, Manu finally attempted her own designs. Since then, cookie decorating has become Manu’s passion, and her mesmerizing video shorts have earned her a large and loyal following throughout the global cookie community. Manu harks from Rome, Italy, where she currently resides. You can email Manu at, follow her on Facebook and Instagram, or explore her past challenges and large library of Made by Manu tutorials here on Cookie Connection.
