McGoo U Online: September 2015


McGoo U: September 2015
Antlers, watercolor florals, brush lettering, metallic and glitter... oh my!

It's always fun to look at fashion and decorating and dress up our cookie in the latest trends.  I took some of the themes I've seen lately and translated them into these super wearable designs for cookies.  Who wants cookies that are "so last season"?  That last phrase is ridiculous for me to say because most of my wardrobe is stuck in the 50's!  

In this month's McGoo U I will take you through all the techniques I used from piping, painting, a fun new way to create flowers and a brand new secret recipe for McGoo Glitter Gold that will knock your socks off!  Seriously, this stuff is amazing and the best part (drum roll) it will not budge or migrate (or whatever you want to call it when those pesky stray glitter particles get EVERYWHERE).  I also found a brilliant new toy that you are going to love.  I officially have one for every color and I'm constantly practicing and finding new uses for them.

Gather round the counter in the McGoo U kitchen because we are fix in' to talk to Nicole Cleghorn (Life's a Batch).  We chat about her family, her decorating classes and her secret identity.  Get to know this fantastic Houston cookier!


Expert Lab: September 2015
Nicole Cleghorn is our visiting cookie professor for September and she shows us her fun a fabulous marbling technique.  It is always great to learn techniques that have great impact but don't take a lot of time and this look is perfect for so many applications!  No bags or tips necessary and hardly any cleanup, this is a great go-to method to try out!


After School: September 2015
"Real Housewives of Cookie County"
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!


Extra Frosting: September 2015
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.
