Cookier's Spring Fling Day 2 (Part 1)

BIG day today!!!!  We met our fellow cookiers in a meeting room on the first floor of our hotel for a breakfast catered by Panera.  Following that, we headed to a local summer camp where we had full range of the entire dining hall. 

Kay and May took the time here to distribute our "goodie bags" and aprons.

Here's a few shots of what's inside!!!! 

(Yes!! These are Karen's new cutters she recently announced!!!!!)  A big thank you to all of the companies who donated to our bags!!

Ok, so our first speaker was Maryann of  The Cookie Artisan.  Maryann spoke about cookie platters 101.  Her presentation was super informative and definitely inspiring!  (notice the last name in the platter on the pic!)

Our next presenter was Pam from Cookie Crazie.  She schooled us all in working with glaze.  I loved the consistency and I definitely think I will take a shot at it again. 

Following Pam, we heard from Karen of Karen's Cookies and she spoke about piping and stenciling. We were able to practice on pre-iced cookies courtesy of Kay and May. 

From here we broke for a deliciously catered lunch and vendor visiting.
 This ends Part 1 of Day 2 and I will resume tomorrow evening when I am not so tired and have a faster Internet connection.  ;o)

Stay tuned!
