About Yankee Girl

My cookie decorating journey started in the spring of 2011, after deciding to take a break from nursing. I learned the ways of royal icing by reading tutorials and LOTS of trial and error. This website will document my cookie journey as I continue to learn and push myself creatively. You will not only see pretty cookies but I also - I promise - to show you the ugly ones that ‘didn’t work out’.  I love putting together tutorials so look for those as well!

I recently became a contributor on the Cookie Connection – “Dear Yankee Girl”. My publications, on the Cookie Connection, are driven by reader’s questions. The blogs that I write there tend to be heavy on the pictures, quick reads and laced with poor jokes. Since I know you will want to read them (and maybe even learn something), here’s the link: http://cookieconnection.juliausher.com/home

While I love making and decorating cookies, I am not able to take orders for cookies at this time.
