McGoo U: June 2016
A common thread weaves the three cookies together in this month's McGoo U. We will create a simple yet stunning dream catcher, a sweet floral embroidery hoop design, and a string and nail art cookie that is so fun! Some of the techniques we will use are piping, an easy rose, and achieving a suede and wood plank background.

After School: June 2016
After School we get our sweat on: cookie style!  As we all know cookies decorating can feel like a workout from lifting those 50 lb bags of flour and rolling out chilled dough, to mixing colors.  We imagine a workout that helps train cookie decorators and get a good workout.  Don't be a cupcake!  Feel the burn!

Extra Frosting: June 2016
There is always some frosting left over after a cookie project. Don't let it go to waste! This is the time to practice a technique or try something new. Earn a little extra credit and use up that extra frosting! All extra frosting segments are created spur of the moment, with no planning or designing, using the actual extra frosting leftover from McGoo U classes.
