After two years of running her annual cookie art competition online due to COVID, Julia returned with her judging team to That Takes the Cake (TTTC) Show in Round Rock, Texas at the end of March 2023. The turnout was terrific, especially for this comeback to in-person competition, and the quality of entrants’ work was as astounding as ever.

Winners were announced at the show show on April 2, and nearly $18,000 in prizes was awarded to 12 very deserving winners in both 2-D and 3-D cookie categories. To see the winning entries and to learn more about each winner, take a look at Julia’s in-depth winner reveal on the blog.

Please also check out the competition’s sponsors on Julia’s “FRIENDS” page. And then show them your love for their very generous contributions by visiting their sites and dropping them thank-you emails! More information about the 2024 competition will come in the fall of this year, so please stay tuned!
