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.


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
