McGoo U Online: July 2016

AloHA!

This month we cookie island style at McGoo U.  Imagine a toasted coconut cookie under a bright tropical color palette and this fun summery Hawaiian themed set at your pool party!  We'll spell out aloha in flirty florals, rustic bamboo and a beautiful plumeria. Next we take the set from fun to TIKI-riffic by creating some toothy tiki faces.   
Lots of techniques and lots of cookies in this month: wet on wet, piping, creating texture, dimensional piping, and painting.

The fantastical and magical Professor Monica Holbert of Cookie Cowgirl joins us in the Expert Lab where she dissects the hows and whys of Frankenfrosting and teaches us everything we wanted to know about the benefits and uses of this creativity enabling creation and how to make it. It's alive!

Mix it Up with Monica Holbert and learn how she isn't just a Cookie Cowgirl, but the real, honest to goodness rootenest, shootenest cowgirl in the wild, wild west! Find out all about how this native Californian-turned Texan got into cookie decorating and how she can shoot the fleas off the cameraman... if he had fleas. 

The internet is a weird and wonderful place and as cookiers we get some weird and wonderful... and not so wonderful comments, messages, and emails. In this episode of After School Yoli Idos, Monica Holbert, Georganne Bell, Laurie Anglen, Andrea Walters, and I read some real comments received in the cookie sphere from real people... I wish we were kidding!

A special thank you to those cookiers who contributed with their cookie comments
And always remember: No matter what anyone says... you are AWESOME!

In Smart Cookie I round out the Aloha cookie set with a simple and quick sand castle cookie that will fit the theme and your time limits.  

As always we finish off the day with a relaxing and impromptu design using the Extra Frosting from class.
