Overview: In 2021, Julia partnered with the world-renowned Japan Salonaise Association, aka JSA, to bring her signature 3-D cookie techniques and recipes to Asia. This beginner class, launched in 2023, is an add-on to JSA’s original five-part class series, and is specifically designed for decorators who are just starting out. It walks students step by step through the process of creating three small and simple, yet very sweet 3-D cookie pops, thus providing a solid launching pad into the 2021-2022 JSA series of more challenging projects. Like all previous classes, this one is conducted both in person at JSA’s Japan headquarters and online for students in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, and Thailand. It is conducted solely in the Japanese language and is only available to students in the markets just indicated. Again, it is not taught by Julia, but the course content was developed by JSA instructors under Julia’s close supervision and comes with Julia’s highest endorsement. Disclosure: Julia earns a small royalty fee on purchases of this course and all other JULIA-endorsed JSA classes bought through the JSA site.
