Cookie Connection Guest Blog Posts - On Hold Through April 2019

Julia M. Usher
Hi, all! As you may or may not know, anyone can post a tutorial to our blog, but these posts all get reviewed and edited by me to make sure they meet Cookie Connection blog standards. This review process often takes three or more hours per post - more when language translation is involved. That being said, I am unusually busy right now, so I am not accepting blog posts from anyone but official contributors for the next few months. If you are not on the Cookie Connection contributor team but...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...

FDA-Approved Gold Luster Dust

Hi, everyone, I've done some searching on the site but haven't found a recent post on this topic (most are old and the links are dead or not working). It seems a lot of people use "non-toxic" gold luster dusts on their cookies, but it is my understanding that these are not approved for consumption and should not be given to consumers. I have used the Wilton dusts and they're okay, but I'm wondering if anyone has found another FDA-approved dust that maybe has a little more "wow" factor? I'm...Read More...

Where to Purchase Meringue Powder in Bulk?

Does anyone know where I can purchase bulk meringue powder? I am down to my last pound of Henry & Henry meringue powder. (I found out about Henry & Henry from Sugarbelle's blog.) I had purchased 15 pounds of it. I have searched and searched the Internet and cannot locate the 15 pound box of Henry & Henry meringue powder. I ended up purchasing two (1 pound) bags of CK meringue powder. Does anyone else purchase their meringue powder in bulk? f so, where do you purchase it and what...Read More...

Red Metallic Dragees?

Joanna (Cookie Mojo)
Hi, folks! I've seen some pictures of cookies and cakes online with red metallic dragees on them, but I can't seem to find them anywhere to purchase. My usual suppliers up here in Toronto say they can't get them in that colour . . . not even in pearl, never mind metallic. Just plain red. Has anyone ever seen them?Read More...

Sugar Stamps

Hi all!  I've just become a US distributor for Sugar Stamps.  I saw them online, fell in love, and had to have them!  They're design sheets made specifically for meringues but I've found that they work beautifully with candy melts also.  You can make little candy kisses, bark, lollipops, covered oreos..... The designs are beautiful and they're so easy to use! Through my experiments I haven't found a way to get them to work with royal icing yet.  They need heat to...Read More...

What to Get from Where???

OK, I have quite a few questions and need answers quickly, thanks! (1) The flowers decorated on the cookies on this home page and in the back ground . . . are those royal icing, fondant, made from moulds or what? And if they are from moulds, where is the best place I can order from? (2) Also, I need site addresses where I can order cutters and plaques, etc. (3) I see so many beautiful cookies, especially with bouquets, etc. Again, what all do I need to make those cookie, i.e., cutters or...Read More...

Impact of Egg Shortage on CK Products Meringue Powder

Julia M. Usher
Hi, all, This information came to me via another cookie friend, but was originally posted on the CK Products' website (and still is, here ). In case you were wondering about the shortage of their meringue powder product, it is indeed related to the egg shortage. Here's what they said: "Jun 15, 2015 Important notice of price change and update on US egg supply. As a result of recent issues, the US egg supply has tightened up over the past few weeks and the price of egg whites has increased...Read More...
