40 years of baking and selling breads, pastries and other bakery items but never decorated cookies. I wanted to make Easter cookies for grandkids so I looked on internet for ideas and how too's. First site I came across was Julia Ushers site. I thought ,"how hard could this be especially since I had many years of experience in the bakery world." Well, was I taken down a few begs...not so easy!! But I kept persevering and learning. Now, love it, in fact when I'm bombarded with breads and pastries, I decorate cookies to relax.
