Julia couldn’t be more excited to announce the second featured instructor in her new Watch-Learn-Create Challenge series! Hosted by Manu Pezzopane on Julia’s community-based site Cookie Connection, these challenges kick off every two months with an instructional video by a noted cookie artist that’s designed to inspire you to create a skill-stretching project of your own. This time, that noted cookie artist is none other than world-renowned Evelindecora, aka Evelin Milanesi! (Just wow, right?!) In her free demo, Evelin shares all of the fine points behind her signature piped crochet technique (pictured here); then she challenges you to make an original project using her methods on an unexpected cookie shape. You’ll have tons of time to create, as the challenge closes after the holiday season on January 7, 2023. What’s more, Evelin has a special prize for one lucky entrant whose name will be announced in the challenge recap post on January 14. Julia hopes you’ll join the fun and learning. There’s nothing to lose, and everything to gain!
