Cookie Connection Contests

Hi, all! There will be a brief hiatus in chats in December, seeing as most of us are likely to be distracted by the holidays. But, come the new year, we'll be chatting again in full force with the launch of our CookieCon 2019 Speakers Series, dedicated to conversations with the event's featured presenters ! It was just yesterday (almost literally) that we concluded the 2018 series. Because CookieCon changed to an annual schedule, now each spring, we're experiencing nearly back-to-back...Read More...
Yes, Berni Solti (aka @Gingerland) is back with us for the duration of December! A few months ago, Berni gave me a load of site art for many different months, and, within that treasure trove, she gifted me with TWO options just for December. Both are so darn cute (see below) that I wasn't quite sure which to choose . . . Option 1: Option 2: . . . and so . . . I didn't! (Avoiding decisions sure makes life easy! ) I'll be starting this month with the first stocking and tree...Read More...

Hi, everyone! The JULIA Airbrush System sold more quickly than ever anticipated and, as some of you may know, is now stocked out. Thank you to everyone who supported the product through their purchases. I am so grateful to you! Several people have asked when it will be available again, and, instead of responding to each and every one of you separately, here's the official answer for all. I regret to say that I have no plans to release any more of this particular system . It’s a long story,...Read More...

Julia M. Usher
Hi, all! I have a fun little announcement for you, which includes some goodies designed to make us feel even more like one big, happy Cookie Connection family!

I’m beta-testing the feature now with some cute Cookie Connection tees and other goodies. Right now, I've got two Cookie Connection tees that look the same from the front . . . . . . but which have...Read More...

Hi, all, I've been receiving an unusually large number of questions about how members can edit or delete their own content. It's super important for you to know how to do this, as I typically do not edit posts for people, unless I happen to see a misclassified image or other typo. It can also take me several hours to days to respond to site inquiries like this, as I work several other jobs. That being said, your surest bet for getting a quick answer is to familiarize yourself with our site...Read More...
Hi, all, regrettably, I've recently had to delete some images from challenges and other areas of the site due to lack of compliance with Rule #8 of our posting guidelines, which states that artwork (including characters, from Disney, Hasbro, etc.) cannot be copied and posted here without permission from the creator : http://cookieconnection.juliau...READ-BEFORE-YOU-POST In response to those deletions, some members have asked me why so many licensed character cookies exist on the site,...Read More...

We all have different message-reading tastes, so Cookie Connection has been designed to allow for everyone's individual differences! The site's default email and onsite alert notifications are set to show you most of the site info that you could get notified about, just so you're aware of the site's full functionality. But I recognize that this amount of info may (or may not) be overkill for you. That said, I recommend that you edit your "Notifications" settings as soon as you join the site...Read More...

Taking the Challenge

Tina at Sugar Wishes
To my joy, the package from Chef Alan's Global Sugar Art, which I won in a Cookie Connection (CC) Practice Bakes Perfect (PBP) challenge, was patiently waiting for me as I finally returned stateside for a visit. It was filled to the brim with so many products; it was like an early Christmas present packed with colors, dusts, tips, sprinkles, mixes, and powders. A cookier's dream - $100 to shop at Global Sugar Art's online store! Few people can understand what a marvelous gift this was to me!Read More...

Hello everyone! I just wanted to let you know that since both Julia and I have been on the road quite a bit this past month, the recap for the latest challenge will be slightly delayed. The recap, which would normally appear this Saturday, July 15th, will post a few days later, sometime around July 18th or 19th. We appreciate your patience! [Julia's Note: This means there will also be no usual Saturday Spotlight on Saturday to replace the challenge recap. Saturday Spotlight s will resume on...Read More...

Hello, everybody! After monitoring the latest challenge for the last few weeks, and noting your collective struggles with it, I have decided to revise the latest challenge in the following ways: The requirement that the entry specifically depict a "scene" has been eliminated. Entries previously submitted, but removed from the challenge for failing to meet the "scene" requirement, will be reconsidered . In order to have an entry reconsidered, please edit your clip to re-include " Practice...Read More...

Wowza! Nancy (Fancy Flours' owner and contest sponsor) and I had a reaaaaaally tough time selecting the three finalists. The entries were consistently top-notch, so it came down to splitting some pretty fine hairs related to the number and mastery of...Read More...
