Former Contributing Editor at Chocolatier (now Dessert Professional), Julia provided a wide array of content to this publication over the years. Her articles featured carefully tested and delicious recipes for cookies, pies, truffles, bake-sale bestsellers, and even an all-chocolate party. This piece, entitled Black & White Desserts: Simple Recipes that Present Chocolate at its Unadulterated Best, was Julia’s last contribution to Chocolatier before it was reincarnated as Dessert Professional in 2008. Apart from the photography, she did all the rest: writing and recipe conception, development, and testing.


Just in time for summer wedding season, my latest 3-D cake tutorial is sure to wow – though it hasn’t a single crumb of actual cake in it! It’s all cookie, modeling chocolate, and royal icing. Another plus: it’s a lot easier to make than it looks! Though my four-tier version embraces my more-is-more mentality, the project can easily be scaled down by making fewer tiers. My tutorial also details every single step so that even beginners can follow along.

To celebrate its launch, I’m offering 50% OFF ALL OF MY TUTORIALS AND CLASS RECORDINGS through June. Just use CODE WOW50 at checkout. – Julia
