Classes by Season

2015-18 Classes

In case you missed Julia’s Cookie Swap journey in 2009, it was one of epic proportions! In the course of five months, Julia had over 100 book signings and cooking classes and 20-some media appearances in 12-plus major metro markets! And in 2011, she had nearly that many events to celebrate her second book Ultimate Cookies. There’s nothing Julia enjoys more about her work than meeting aspiring cookie artists, so she’s always scheduling demos and classes, new book or not. In 2018, Julia is traveling the world (literally) to teach one- and two-day long classes in cookie decorating. This latest journey will take her to such far-flung places as the Dominican Republic, Argentina, and Switzerland. Take a peek below to see what she’s scheduled in your neck of the woods. She would love to meet you!

To schedule an event, contact Julia at sweetlife@juliausher.com. Thanks for your interest!

Julia joins Creative Cookier’s Cookie Rehab Ahoy to teach cookie decorating while cruising from New Orleans, Louisiana to Cozumel, Mexico, and back. Julia will show 50 lucky cruise-goers how to make a mixed media steampunk-themed cookie (steampunk is the event’s theme) that utilizes a wide range of techniques including combed icing, stamped appliqués, isomalt “sea glass”, stenciled and airbrushed “seaweed”, molded cookie gears and shells, and more!

March 11 | All Day
Shore Cake Supply, Ocean, New Jersey, USA
In her second appearance at Shore Cake Supply, Julia teaches a one-day cookie class where students will explore the ins and outs of over 15 cookie baking and decorating techniques, all applied to traditional 2-D cookies! Techniques include: embossed and molded cookies, outlining/flooding, needlepoint, marbling, airbrushing, stenciling (three ways), piped 3-D transfers (including roses and other flowers), rubber-stamping, basic dusting and painting, edible paper accents, beadwork and other piped finishing methods, and Julia’s newly developed technique, royal icing shards. Students will also explore the fundamentals of cookie design and composition by applying three or more of these techniques to a mixed media cookie of their own design. To register, please contact Julia’s host Jennifer Welter at Shore Cake Supply. HURRY! ONLY TWO SPOTS LEFT!

Julia is now booking for 2019. Additional 2018 events, including ones in the Dominican Republic, Japan, Argentina, and Switzerland, will be posted soon.
