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! Long story short, I recently partnered with teespring.com and YouTube to bring branded Cookie Connection and JULIA merchandise to YouTube.

Right now, I've got two Cookie Connection tees that look the same from the front . . . . . . but which have...Read More...

Introducing Our August Site Artist - Berni Solti!

Julia M. Usher
It's that time again for our monthly site makeoever, and - wowza - we have indeed been transformed, thanks to this generous and very summer-y contribution from @Gingerland, aka Berni Solti. I just love the perfect porcelain-like finishes on Berni's cookies, and the added depth and dimension she achieves through shading with an airbrush! Her cookie colors work wonderfully with the Cookie Connection logo too - an added plus! Thank you, Berni, for keeping our site alive with...Read More...

How to Edit or Delete Your Own Content

Julia M. Usher
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...

Important Reminder about Copying and Posting Characters without Permission

Julia M. Usher
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...

Adjusting Your Email Notifications and Onsite Alerts

Julia M. Usher
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...

LilaLoa's Latest "Expert Q & A" Blog is Out!

Julia M. Usher
Hi, all! As I mentioned about a month ago, several cookie decorators and I are participating in an "Experts Q & A" forum on @LilaLoa's blog. Each month, Georganne asks us a different question about cookie decorating, and you get the chance to see how similar (or different) our answers might be. I'm learning a lot just by reading the others' responses, and I thought you would too, which is why I'll be sharing Georganne's post here each month. This time, we were asked...Read More...

Photo and Graphic Design by LilaLoa; Permission Granted to Post Here Hi, everyone! I just wanted to alert you that @LilaLoa (aka Georganne Bell) has a new "Expert Q&A" feature on her blog, where she asks a panel of cookiers (yours truly included) a different question each month. This month, it was all about rolling cookie dough ! It's been fun to formulate my answers and to read the sometimes very different responses from the others. (Just when you think you've...Read More...

New Blog on Ann Clark Site - Superhero of Sweets!

Julia M. Usher
Hi, everyone, this post is part information about a new resource and part shameless self-promotion, so consider yourself forewarned! Ann Clark (you know, that famous US-based cookie cutter company) has launched a new blog and series within that blog called "Superhero of Sweets", where they aim to feature cookiers and other sugar artists on a regular basis. Their goal is to heighten awareness of our craft and those who contribute to it. I think it will be a great resource to members here,...Read More...
