Surprise! I told you last month that we were wrapping up our CookieCon Speakers Series . . . but, lucky for you, I lied! As it turns out, the wonderfully creative Toni Miller of The Sprinkle Factory (and CookieCon 2020 Core Presenter) will be joining us for a live chat on March 7, 2020 (10 am central), shortly after CookieCon!
I've long been enamored with Toni's delightful and colorful Instagram page. (If you haven't yet seen it, you should!) It's bright, cheery, expertly photographed, and, most important, purposeful to the point that it's garnered her a sizable following (24K at last count!)!
At CookieCon, Toni will be teaching a crash course in cookie photography, where she'll quash the misconception that you need a bunch of expensive equipment and lights to present your work at its best. Of course, we'll want to explore this topic in our chat too, but I'm also extremely curious to hear her thoughts about social media strategy, and more about her new venture, The Sprinkle Factory Library! Any other (cookie-related) topics are also fair game, as always!
Toni's chat room is now open to receive advance questions here. I encourage you to log some questions before we go live, as, that way, we can get through many more questions on live chat day! To help fuel your questions, please check out Toni's bio and social media links below! We look forward to "seeing" you at the chat on March 7!
Outside of the cookie studio, Toni is happily married to her high school sweetheart, who currently serves in the US military. Together, they have four sweet mess-makers ranging from toddler to tween, with a set of twins in the mix. When they are not traveling the world together, they are sneaking into the studio to flood a few extra cookies!
To learn more about Toni, check out her website and Instagram page.
