CLEMATIS COOKIE

Julia continues her latest botanical series with these cookies inspired by the very beauties climbing her own garden arbor. (Or we should say “arbors”; she grows many varieties of clematis!) This edible variety is made entirely of royal icing transfers, some contoured and others stenciled, like the delicate trellis in the background. After drying, each piece is individually airbrushed and then assembled together on the cookie to create this masterpiece. A labor of love, no doubt, but definitely a project anyone can do with Julia’s detailed step-by-step instructions.

2024 Competition

Ready for it?! Julia and her judges certainly are!

This year, the competition returns online, where Julia has plans to keep it in perpetuity! The online format allows anyone anywhere in the world to enter, and Julia thinks there’s nothing better than inclusivity! The 2024 schedule and a theme sneak peek posted on January 21 to Julia’s community-based site Cookie Connection, the competition’s online home base. And, on February 15, the rules and theme were fully revealed in the same place.

The next 2024 competition milestone will be the opening of registration (and entry uploads) on March 30. For the full schedule and updates on competition news, follow the Cookie Connection competition blog or the blog on this site via the link below.

To see the outcome of the 2023 competition, check out last year’s winner announcement. It should give you a good idea of the caliber of 2024 competition and may kickstart your preparations!

Upcoming Classes & Events

Julia’s 2024 class schedule is beginning to take shape, and it’s looking exciting! Her in-person classes will take her as far afield as Australia, but she also intends to put more emphasis on the home front with return appearances at online events, such as The Bake Fest, and an expanded schedule of Zoom classes.
