How Does Your (Metaphorical) Garden Grow?

Whoa, it's been eons since my last newsletter! My only excuse is: I've been busy sowing the seeds of new projects - so busy, in fact, that I've barely had a moment to put down the metaphorical rototiller! But with most of those seeds now planted and some already beginning to blossom, I've got a little more time on my hands to share my latest news. So here goes . . . 

As of last newsletter, I had just launched my Prettier Plaques cookie stencil series in partnership with Confection Couture Stencils. I've since expanded into another stencil line called Dynamic Duos, and I'm on the cusp of launching a new airbrush system for cookie and cake decorating. I've been over a year in development of the system, so it will be especially gratifying to pluck this flower and finally present it to you! It's going to revolutionize your approach to airbrush cleaning, among other things! Of course, I'm still pouring my heart and soul into Cookie Connection, my video tutorials, and my in-person cookie decorating classes. Please read on for more details about all of these ventures, old and new. I hope your metaphorical garden is growing and flourishing too!

Live sweetly,

Julia Signature


Cookie Creations.

One of my most satisfying recent video projects, this 3-D garden arbor cookie requires no weeding or watering! Plus, everything from the sundial and slate to the window boxes and walkway is edible! I'm currently at work on a cookie beach scene and teapot and sugar bowl set, so please stay tuned to my YouTube channel!

Cookie Decorating Classes.

This year, I've already had classes in Mexico and the US. More classes are planned for the Dominican Republic, Argentina, Japan, and Switzerland in 2018, and bookings are currently underway for 2019! Please email if you're interested in scheduling a course. BTW, the cookie to the right is one I cover in my "Technique Fundamentals" beginner class.

New Product!

After testing countless airbrush configurations and compressors, I'm confident that you're going to love my new airbrush system, designed in partnership with Badger Air-Brush Co. It includes a dual-action airbrush with an inline airflow valve, both of which allow for superior control. For more info about its great features, check out this video. Coming later in April!

Recent Accolades.

My site Cookie Connection was recently recognized by Craftsy as one of the top ten cookie decorating blogs in the US. (Kudos to my contributors who do all of the heavy lifting!) My YouTube channel was also nominated for three TASTE Awards for video excellence: Best Single Topic Series, Best Instructional Web Series, and Best Online Food Program. It didn't take home the gold (for the third year in a row), but what an honor to be considered!
