    I’ve tried using the round, black sprinkles for eyes, but they bleed everytime. Why is that?

    I would love to find a really good low carb cookie recipe and a good alternative to decorate like icing sugar.

    I wish Crafty’s would sell merchandise for these classes. I miss buying the items I don’t have and need for a class or the kit. With Covid-19, it’s hard to find places to purchase these items. I would like a better quality than before and I would be willing to pay for these items

      Hello Beverly,

      Unfortunately, TN Marketing’s acquisition of the Bluprint assets does not include any inventory of physical products, materials, fabric, and kits. However, we are exploring the possibilities in working with one or more existing e-commerce and retail companies.

      Thank you!

    I have my grandmother’s oatmeal cookie recipe. Her cookies always flattened out and stayed soft and chewy. Was it because she may have used lard or butter? Thank you!

    Okay, am giving up on this particular live video, too many technical difficulties for whatever reason. So sorry it’s happening as I really wanted to hear this live chat video. Good luck to those trying to figure it out on Craftsy’s end.

    I am new to having interests in making cookies. Do you have a tutorial on how to do make and bake the sugar cookies before the decorating? If so, please tell me where I can sign up for that class?

    I do a lot of decorated cookies for sale but I have issues that I can’t seem to figure out. Mostly icing bleeding onto other colors. I let the icing sit overnight and then do the next color. Sometimes it’s fine but lately I’ve had a lot of disasters where colors will bleed the same day or even into the next day. I’ve also discovered that many of the sprinkles etc. that I use will bleed into the icing after a couple of days. Any suggestions?
