In 2008, Julia was honored with an invitation to join the very exclusive Les Dames d’Escoffier International (LDEI) as a founding member of the St. Louis, Missouri chapter. Considered the preeminent global professional association for women leaders in the food, beverage, and hospitality industries, LDEI is quite selective about those it asks to join its ranks. Members are drawn from the highest echelons of the food world, and are expected to inspire and advance other women in the food industry through demonstrated excellence in leadership and philanthropy.



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
