I'm Cookie-maker of the Month... No, really!

When I received the e-mail last week from my sweet friend, Bridget letting me know that she featured me as Cookie-maker of the month, I almost wished I wasn't on a cruise where there was no Internet access!

Seriously, I've been dying to see!

Now that I'm baaaack, all I can say is Wow! And, thank you, Bridget! I am humbled by your recognition of my efforts with sugar, and have only YOU to thank for every success I have decorating sugar cookies. I never imagined I would be paid to do something so much fun, which also provides me with such creative outlet. I mean, I have trouble drawing a decent stick-figure, and I couldn't knit to save my life; however, through your patient input and direction, I am able to turn out sugar cookies that taste amazing and look retail/bakery-worthy... Even if I do say so myself!    

And to you, my dear readers... You already know that every ounce of cookie baking and decorating skill I have came to me via reading Bridget's wonderful blog, Bake at 350 and through the use of heirloom-quality copper cookie cutters I find at CopperGifts. However, what you may not already know is that several months ago, Bridget launched a fantastic cookie-tutorial site, cleverly named University of Cookie.

At University of Cookie, Bridget, aka, The Dean, along with a little help from her team of very skilled, visiting professors expands our cookie education through the use of video tutorials. Therefore, if you've ever wished you could see sugar cookie decorating techniques come to life, step-by-step, all you have to do is enroll as a student by following here! Best of all, tuition is free... Although I highly recommend that if you author a blog, you consider showing UOC some alumni-love by grabbing the free button or help spread the word by giving this pilar of higher cookie learning a shout-out through a post of your own

Oh! And, before I forget... There are no dues, fees or text books to buy either... However, I fully expect to see Bridget hosting a book signing of her own one day very soon!

Happy Baking!

  3. Oh, aren't you the sweetest, Janet?!? If you could see my cookies from my first year, or two, or three, of cookie decorating, you would know that you have NATURAL TALENT! You picked it up right away!

    So glad you emailed me a year ago! :) Mwah!

    Great job girl!


  5. That's awesome Janet. You are one talented, beautiful and kind lady. You so deserve this.
