University of Cookie

Alright...it has taken me a few, well, 6 months, but I did it.

When I posted a survey back in October to find out what YOU wanted, it never occurred to me that you might say videos. But you did...or some of you did.

So, I present to you my first how-to video. I thought it would be easier to put all of the videos in one place on a new blog called University of Cookie!!!


Disclaimer #1:
University of Cookie is looking a little plain right now, but will be much cuter once the fabulous Jessica of The Frilly Coconut gets a hold of it!


Disclaimer #2:
Isn't it always a little disappointing when you've pictured someone in your head and then you SEE them and think...."that's not what they look like!"

Well, you're about to see and HEAR me. I have my apron tied a little too high, my hair is a mess and so on and so on. In my mind, I looked a little bit more like this:

So feel free to picture Giada in my place.

{Except for you, honey.}

So, pop on over to University of Cookie!!! And, boy, do I have some talented bakers who are going to join me there from time to time. Come see!


Tell me....what other cookie decorating videos would you find helpful?

  10. You are so nice to share your knowledge with us. That's a killer first vlog! And letting the frosting rest so you can smash those air bubbles?--I would've never thought of it. So glad I found you on twitter. Looking forward to learning lots from you from now on.

  18. Hardly a disappointment to see OR hear you! How I do love your attitude. Why is it always more cringe provoking for the one in the video than the one viewing it? Better odds for success that way though. lol.
