McGoo U Online: May 2016

McGoo U: May 2016
In class this month at McGoo U we will be focusing on our typing and letter writing skills.  We spell it out with a rusty marquee light, in a wordy letter mailed in a vintage envelope, and we hone our typing skills as we type a message on a typewriter.  tap tap tap... ding!  There are so many fun ways you could incorporate these cookies into different themes and events.

Mixing It Up: May 2016
We get to know Yoli in Mixing it Up and learn what a lucky lady she is.  She was the grand prize winner of the McGoo Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaway from last Christmas where she won everything from stencils and ribbon to her first KitchenAid mixer and a flyaway trip to visit and film at McGoo U!  Yoli's excitement about cookies is contagious.  She shares her love of cookies with her "cookie friends" who meet at her house regularly to create together.  She runs a bridal shop with her sister and has two boys and a very supportive husband who is always amazed at her beautiful cookie creations.

Expert Lab: May 2016
Our guest professor in the Expert Lab this month is the one and only Yoli Idos of Yoli's Yummies.  Yoli teaches us how she makes beautiful accents on her cookies using wafer paper.  It was fascinating to watch how she creates 3 dimensional flowers and butterflies.  Such a fun way to add texture and detail and Yoli shows us how easy it is.

Smart Cookie: May 2016
We welcome back Marquita Miller as she talks about how we can make our cookie businesses profitable and how we can come up with a formula for pricing.  She shares so much great advice here for those of you who sell cookies and tackles a question on every business cookier's mind.

After School: May 2016
"Real Housewives of Cookie County"
~New Money
~You've Got to be Kitten Me right Meow
They may live in the lap of luxury, but life isn't always perfect for the women who reside in one of the wealthiest enclaves of the world (Cookie County). They focus on living the "cookie lifestyle", one upmanship, having more cookie cutters than the "Johnsons"; plastic surgery, shopping, drinking, dancing, and dining out top their agendas. Ladies come and go through the show's run as too many cookiers in the kitchen result in burn outs. That's the way the cookier crumbles! School we revisit our Real Housewives of Cookie County skit series.  

In this episode we'll see how our real housewives are getting along, and what they think when someone new (with new money) moves into the neighborhood.  A huge THANK YOU to our divas (for the day) Yoli Idos (Yoli's Yummies), Monica Holbert (Cookie Cowgirl), Andrea Walters (AndyKay's Cookies), Laurie Anglen (Cookie Bliss), and Georganne Bell (LilaLoa).  It was so hilarious seeing these sweet ladies act like spoiled brats for the filming.

Extra Frosting: May 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.
