About Me

Hello, I'm Marlyn, the face behind the hands you see on the Montreal Confections YouTube channel. I have been sharing my passion for cookie decorating there since 2010.

I taught myself this craft through hours & hours of practice, I am absolutely obsessed with all things cookie. When I film a video, I always keep the viewer in mind, I break the process up into manageable steps, ensuring you will be able to follow along. My online video tutorials have been viewed millions of times & my works have been featured in Cake Central Magazine, Cake Wrecks, Crafty Blog & much more. I was a speaker at the 2018 CookieCon, and most recently, I appeared on the season premiere of Christmas Cookie Challenge season 3. 

I am based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, you can send me an email if you'd like to know anything more.


  1. Hi Maryln, This is small note to say thank you for your excellent tutorials. I follow them on youtube and have learnt so much. Recently I had a large order of Minnie Mouse face cookies and used your lala loopsy tutorial as a guide. Did have the same request last year and the cookies were not upto the mark, even though client was happy with them. Sending you pictures of both to show you how much I've learnt from your amazing tutorials. A very big thank you.

  2. Hi marlyn. Your decorating work is exceptional ... love it. Would like to know what to use to get royal icing red red like you did on those cookies with the worm. My icing never gets red like that. Would be appreciated. Thanks
