Cookier's Spring Fling Day 1

So, I'm here in Louisville Kentucky with my friend Kate, from Kooking in Kate's Kitchen at the Cookie Two Shoes first annual Spring Fling!   May and her twin sister Kay, of Cookie Two Shoes, had the idea of bringing cookiers together to learn techniques and tips from some of the top cookiers there are.  When Kate caught wind of this, she took the chance of asking if I would go and I certainly couldn't turn this opportunity down!  So after months of waiting, on Thursday after work, we packed up the car and hit the road!

We traveled west towards our halfway point which luckily happened to be Kate's sister's house in Charleston, WV.  After spending the night, we hopped back in the car and continued west for another 3.5 hours to our final destination of Louisville, KY. 

We arrived an hour and a half before we needed to be at the University of Louisville for our first day of the Spring Fling!  Upon arriving, and meeting about 65 other cookiers, Kate and I could hardly believe our eyes when the "Cookie Queens" themselves were introduced and held a question and answer session.

From the left you have Ali, of Ali Bee's Bake Shop, Callye of The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle, Glory of Glorious Treats, Pam of Cookie Crazie, Maryann of The Cookie Artisan, and Karen of Karen's Cookies.  This is big stuff people!!

After some great conversation, we all headed off to dinner on the Ohio River at Tumbleweed Tex Mex Grill and Margarita Bar. 

We returned to the hotel room with full bellies and tired eyes and relaxed for the night.  Stay tuned for day 2 of the Cookier Spring Fling when the real fun begins!!
