Announcing Our November Live Chat with Katy Metoyer, aka Sugar Dayne

Julia M. Usher
Woo hoo! Our 2018 CookieCon Speakers Series continues (and concludes) with our last (but not least) CookieCon instructor live chat. On November 3 at 10 am central time , we're meeting up with none other than Katy Metoyer of Sugar Dayne , perhaps best known for her avant-garde, impressionistic seaside-themed cookies, like the beauties pictured below. Since 2017, she's also been the proud operator of a brick-and-mortar cookie shop, which I suspect we'll learn a lot more about during the chat!Read More...

Introducing Our October Site Artist - Berni Solti, Once Again!

Julia M. Usher
Thanks to Berni Solti, aka @Gingerland, for dressing up our site again this month - this time in full-on Halloween regalia! I just love Berni's crisp lines and perfect piping, and the "energy" of her designs, don't you?! As you may know, Berni has been a prolific contributor of site art, and, as such, has already been the subject of one of our in-depth Cookier Close-up interviews - one of the perks of being a site artist!

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...

I want to make my own cookie stencils. Do you think I need to buy the latest model or can I get away with one of the older models used? I would love to save some money and get a used one. I have seen some on Ebay and even Craigslist. My main goal is making cookie stencils. I want to upload my own images. What model do you have? Suggestions appreciated.Read More...
