After a little break from chatting in July, we've got a busy, all-star lineup in August! On August 11, we continue our CookieCon 2018 Speakers Series with CookieCon instructor and The Cookie Countess owner, Hillary Ramos!
We'll naturally talk to Hillary about cookie stencils and stenciling (the focus of her business), but any other cookie questions are also fair game!
(1) Please feel free to enter advance questions now by following the instructions at the top of this chat page. (As always, it's super helpful for questions to be logged early, so our guests are able to prepare answers beforehand and to field more questions during live chat time.) To help inform your questions, please review Hillary’s bio (below).
(2) Please note that any advance questions will reveal one at a time, in the order received, only after the chat goes live. Do not expect questions or answers to appear immediately.
(3) Last but not least, as with all of these chats, you have a special opportunity to see inside the minds of some extremely talented decorators, so I encourage you to do your homework before jumping on the chat. Again, please review Hillary's bio and her various website and social media links below.
I look forward to "seeing" you at the chat!
Hillary Ramos decorated her first cookie in January 2011, for her son's second birthday. Little did she know she would become The Cookie Countess, and cookie decorating would turn into a new passion and career path for her and her family. After being a hobby decorator turned cookie order-taker, Hillary began experimenting with stenciling her cookies, and quickly decided to design and sell her own stencils. Starting with only a few designs, The Cookie Countess has since grown to over 800 stencil designs. The Cookie Countess has also expanded into custom-made products, such as its new Precision Rolling Pin, and into much-loved supplies, including cookie cutters, airbrush machines, colorings, and storage solutions for all those fabulous stencils. In 2015, Hillary's husband Jon joined the cookie fun and has helped grow their business to a one-stop shop for cookie decorators. You can visit Hillary's store at TheCookieCountess.com, and follow her on Instagram and Facebook for cookie tutorials and inspiration.
