Julia M. Usher’s Cookie Art Competition


In June 2021, Julia M. Usher’s Cookie Art Competition™ went online when That Takes the Cake Show, the usual home to Julia’s competition, canceled due to COVID. Talk about pivoting on a dime! In a few short months, Julia built all of the systems required to support the new virtual format, raised over $14,000 in prizes, and welcomed cookiers from all over the world to join the fun. Despite the challenging circumstances, both competitor and sponsor participation reached an all-time high. Julia also served as head judge overseeing the judging process of four other judges.


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
