Julia's Ultimate Cookie Decorating Series...
At long last, I’ve finished it - “it” being the companion video series to my latest cookie decorating book Ultimate Cookies! I’m a firm believer that creativity is best expressed once you’ve mastered the fundamentals, and so the series is organized around techniques, rather than projects (though I show several projects along the way). There are 16 lessons, spanning four hours of footage, which you can purchase in DVD format.
Before I elaborate on the lessons and other details related to viewing, I’d like to give a big shout-out to CopperGifts.com and Designer Stencils, two companies whose products I love - and generous sponsors of this video series.
Also, a heartfelt thanks to Joe Baran of Workingman’s Film, who was director, producer, editor, and all-around great guy on this project!
OK, so here are the deets. Be sure to read past the video to the bottom of the page!

2 | The Lessons.
There are 16 video lessons, which range from the basics of outlining and flooding to more advanced techniques such as marbling, stenciling, rubber-stamping, and wafer-papering. Whether you’re just starting to dabble in royal icing or hoping to take your skills to the next level, you’ll find tons of tips to elevate your decorating. For a taste of the video series, click on the preview of Lesson 9 (Marbling), below. For more detailed video descriptions, visit my video store and click on the link to purchase. You’ll be taken to a page on Createspace/Amazon, which contains a complete video listing.

NOTES: Due to the DVD compression requirements of Amazon/Createspace, Julia recommends watching the DVD at less than full computer screen for best resolution. While some of these videos may be released to YouTube in late 2013, the DVD is the only option that will allow you to watch the complete series forever from anywhere!
The online streaming formats for viewing (via Youreeeka) are no longer available. However, anyone who previously purchased those formats will continue to receive service from Youreeeka through the terms of their service agreements. If Youreeeka customers have any questions about their existing service, please send those inquiries directly to email@example.com.
4 | Again, Thanks to My Sponsors!
I am so grateful for the support of CopperGifts.com and Designer Stencils! Without their generous contributions, these videos would not have been possible. Please visit their sites and check out their wonderful products.
Oh, and feel free to spread my video-word by sharing this post with all who might enjoy it! (I will forever be indebted to you!) But most important, I sincerely hope you have fun with these lessons and learn many new things along the way. Live sweetly!
Hi Julia! I purchased the one year streaming of the videos, and I have already watched 5 of them in one sitting! They are awesome! I feel blessed to be able to learn from you, and these are truly the next best thing to actually being in the room with you. Thank you so much for doing these and sharing your talent and expertise with the rest of us!

Hi Julia! So looking forward to purchasing the series to see the master at work. Any idea when the videos will be accessible on iPads? Just wondering if Youreeka had shared a timeline with you.

Hi, Kia, No, they have not shared a time frame with me re: iPad streaming. However, the videos are available on DVD now (see above, option 2C), so that might be another possibility for you. Thanks for asking!
