American Cake Awards


Julia had the distinct honor to be among the inaugural set of judges for the first-ever American Cake Awards, founded and hosted by Cake Masters Magazine. The judges were selected because of their “incredible industry experience” (in ACA’s own words) and for their highly regarded skills in particular areas of sugar art. Julia was one of two cookie artists in all of North America to be chosen for this important role. Though judging occurred in 2020, the awards weren’t conferred until 2022 because of COVID-related delays. Julia also had the privilege of announcing the cookie category winner at the 2022 ceremony.


After nearly six months in development, my new Kitchen Club Collection has arrived! Here’s an overview of some of the cookies you can make with my first kit in the collection, which released just in time for Halloween. Complete with stencils, cutters, and even an instructional video, each kit will provide all you need to make wonderfully rich and layered 2-D, and often 3-D, stenciled cookie designs. 

Stay tuned for more holiday releases in October and November! I hope you love my new club and kits as much as I loved designing them for you! – Julia
