Cookie question? Ask me any time!

A Newsy Newsletter . . .

 . . . which is as I suppose it should be. But this newletter is unusually packed with announcements and updates. You see, between prep for the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show (which included the cookie jewelry boxes, above, and a dancing cookie cake, below) and launching a couple of new ventures, it's been a busy few months. In this issue, I share all of my latest cookie projects - aka the reasons I went missing for several weeks! (Belated apologies for skipping the summer newsletter, BTW.) Below you'll find the happy highlights of the aforementioned show, where I headlined with Food Network Cake Challenge star Bronwen Weber, along with a new site, app, and other things. Oh, and if you're missing my usual tutorials (sorry, none in this issue), don't worry. My new YouTube channel is fully loaded!  

Live sweetly!

Dancing Cookie Cake!

When Cake Queen Kerry Vincent asked me to do a large-scale, two-day cookie decorating demo for hundreds, maybe even thousands, at her renowned cake and sweets show, the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show, I darn near fell off my chair. But teeter precariously on its edge I wouldn’t for long! Kerry’s exacting standards can be scary (take it from anyone who’s lost a Food Network Challenge that she’s judged). I didn't have a second to waste if I wanted to avoid letting her down. And so I spent the bulk of August and September designing an all-cookie tablescape complete with this dancing cookie centerpiece!

Cookie Connection

Cookie Connection, my online cookie decorating community, launched as planned in June and has since been inundated (in a good way) with cookie photos, tutorials, articles, and other resources designed to guide decorators of all skill levels. If you've got a friend who loves decorating, please share the link. We're a passionate community of 2,000 from 30 countries, and rapidly growing!

New App Now Here!

Developing my new cookie decorating app was like birthing a baby (read, painful), but it's finally ready to be pushed out into the world (so to speak). In a nutshell, it's a "best of" compilation of my favorite Ultimate Cookies projects and videos, along with other cool features like technique and project sorts, and must-have tool and supplier lists! In celebration of its arrival, I'm running a giveaway through November 14. Please join and help spread the word!

2014 Events

Perhaps my most exciting news is a terrific cookie decorating class lineup for 2014, which will take me to such far-flung and lovely places as Barcelona, Lisbon, Amsterdam, and Genoa. Hope to see you on the road!
