Hey, all! I have two important news items that should interest you!


One of the many amazing aspects of Cookie-A-Thon, organized by the wonderful Nancy Westfall, is that sponsors like me get free All-Access Passes to give away. Remember, Cookie-A-Thon (a four-day spree of online cookie classes from March 14 to 17) is normally free. However, if you want access to the class video recordings and additional perks (coupons, prizes, etc.) from the event’s sponsors, then an All-Access Pass is the way to go! (BTW, pictured below is the topic of my Cookie-A-Thon tutorial; it’s all about online tutorial creation . . . why you might do it and the factors to weigh along the way!)

Love and Learn - Cookie-A-Thon 4 ALL-ACCESS PASS GIVEAWAY

🍀 And guess what?! This week is your lucky week! From March 4 to 7 (9 am CT), I’m running a giveaway on Rafflecopter where you have the chance to win one of FOUR ALL-ACCESS PASSES! My giveaway gives you several different ways to enter (basically, the more things you do, the greater your chances of winning). You can even come back and do certain things more than once. So feel free to return to the giveaway link each day to increase your odds of nabbing a prize!

🎲 READY TO ENTER? Simply click here or on the widget below any time after March 4 (9 am CT). The various ways to enter will be revealed behind the link and should be self-explanatory. But if not, please let me know in the comments below. Please also be sure to review all of the giveaway terms and conditions (on the Rafflecopter page) before entering. Best of luck, my cookie friends!

🎟 NOT A GAMBLER? Then just click here to buy an All-Access Pass right now!  (Disclosure: This link is my affiliate link. And, remember, pass pricing goes from a mere $97 – about $2 per tutorial – to $197 on March 14, so don’t delay in getting the best possible price!)


As a proud sponsor and judge of the 2024 American Cake Awards hosted by Cake Masters Magazine, I encourage you to nominate your favorite cookie and cake artists, retailers, rising stars, and sugar heroes (they have categories for everything)! Nominating is a lovely way to thank those who have inspired and shaped you, and to keep the sugar arts industry flourishing at its fullest! Let's also make sure cookie decorators are well represented among the nominees! (Cakes have been the focus of these awards programs for far too long, IMO. )



And that's all I've got - for now anyway! It's a busy, busy next couple of months in cookie-land, with several shows and competitions launching and concluding, so I am bound to have more news updates (especially about my own competition) very soon!
