Every Little Detail with Aproned Artist: Monarch Caterpillar and Butterfly Cookies

To my surprise, rice paper has become one of my favorite elements to incorporate into new designs. It’s such a versatile material. Rice paper can be molded (to create a balloon), imprinted (with the veining of a bumblebee wing), or kept flat (like the windows of a tiny cabin). It can be...

Made by Manu: 3-D Winter Wonderland Tree Cookie

I am celebrating winter with a 3-D winter wonderland tree cookie, and I hope you'll come celebrate with me! This 3-D project doesn’t require any icing "glue" to stand, so it's more like a 3-D cookie platter. The concept behind its construction is similar to that of mug-hugger cookies, which are . . .

Saturday (Oops, Sunday) Spotlight: Top 10 Cookies

Hi, everyone! First, I apologize for the skipped Spotlight (last week) and the delayed one (this week).

So, as you've probably heard by now, Julia M. Usher’s Cookie Art Competition™ is going virtual AGAIN in 2022! While I am tremendously saddened that That Takes the Cake (TTTC) Show, the usual host of my usually in-person competition, has cancelled this year's February event in Austin, "the show must go on" as...

Saturday Spotlight: Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge #48 Recap

With many cookiers owning dozens – even hundreds – of cookie cutters, losing track of the identity of one or two is bound to happen. And, trying to decipher those "mystery" cutters can be a challenge all on its own. Fortunately, our Practice Bakes Perfect challenge entrants have shown...

Every Little Detail with Aproned Artist: Black Widow Spider Cookie
