St. Louis AT HOME


It all started here, people! This piece, entitled Over-the-Top Cookie Swap, is precisely what landed Julia a literary agent and inspired Gibbs Smith to publish her first book Cookie Swap! Julia conceived of the event and was responsible for all recipe development and testing, writing, and food styling. She also enlisted and guided the photographer and prop stylist to ensure a common vision and cohesive event design.

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
