Julia M. Usher’s Cookie Art Competition


Julia has had the honor of judging many cookie competitions over the years, but there isn’t a one she enjoys judging more than her own Julia M. Usher’s Cookie Art Competition™. While Julia’s competition started in 2013 at Kerry Vincent’s Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show (after Kerry created and named the cookie category after Julia!), it’s moved over the years to its current home in Austin, Texas at That Takes the Cake Show.

Originally recorded as a Facebook Live for the prestigious Cake International, this tutorial includes over two hours of instruction (complete with live student Q&A) and an extensive 20-page class handout with recipes, inspiration images, sources, and technique tips. Happy (early) Valentine’s Day, and live sweetly! – Julia
