Julia M. Usher’s Cookie Art Competition


In 2023, Julia M. Usher’s Cookie Art Competition™ returned to its on-the-ground home, That Takes the Cake Show in Austin, Texas, where competitors and judges were delighted to meet each other face to face after a COVID-induced hiatus that lasted far too long! Despite only a few months between the close of the 2022 online competition and the launch of this in-person format, the competition awarded another standard-setting prize package – $18,000 in total, to be exact! As usual, Julia served as head judge of her world-renowned judging team.


I’m constantly adding new events, tutorials, and other goodies to this site. If you want to get first dibs on my special sales, product releases, or early bird class savings, be sure to sign up for my newsletter. 

Schedule willing, I release a newsletter each month, roughly mid-month. I thank you in advance for taking an interest in my decorating  adventures, and I look forward to connecting with you more personally each month! 

Live sweetly, Julia
