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.


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
