When I was talking to Monica about the podcast she asked if she could give away one of her classes at Cookie Con 2018. I knew how much y’all would love it so I jumped at the chance! Below you will find a description of what she’s giving away.
The Cookie Cowgirl Cookie Con 2018 Pre-Class Giveaway!
Not so basic cookie design:
Mixing it up before you roll it out.
Learn tips and tricks to unlock your hidden creative potential and navigate cookie orders of all types like a pro.
Hold onto your cookies cutters because this is going to be good. This class is going to be an interactive journey on what to do before you cut out your first cookie or warm your first stick of butter.
We’ll talk about multiple theme tips, when to do characters vs. non-characters, sketching for success, recipes, and how to be creative when you don’t feel artistic. I’m going to give you the tools I use to get the most out of every order by planning ahead and not wasting so much precious time, energy, and materials trying to figure it out on the fly.
Use your cookie brain for good and learn to see designs out of a variety of shapes they were not originally intended for.
Create charismatic characters with little to no effort that are easy to adapt to a variety of purposes. Have FUN.
There will be some exclusive items for students only and you’ll be the first to get your hand on some super secret Cookie Cowgirl swag.
Hope to see y’all there!

Would love this prize, And the cookie she entered is really a work of art. And I love the way she is dressed in the photo. I would love to decorate cookies like this, never have but would learn all about decorating cookies. Thank you for the offer for us newbies to the cookie decorating field. I have only decorated cakes so far.
It was fun hearing about cookie artist Monica, and her cookie journey. I really enjoy your podcasts! It is as if I am sitting down with friends and talking about cookies!!! What could be better?

I love seeing her process and beautiful outcomes! I live by one of her tips from a previous CookieCon – just take a minute to do it right; you won’t be disappointed!
Oh and her dark cocoa powder is awesome too!
The thought of a Cookie Cowgirl cookbook with imaginative cookie dough recipes is already on my list of “must haves.”
Over here…I’m so excited!!!

Dying to take her class! Can’t wait for CookieCon 2018!!!

Please pick me! I love to learn from the best ones
A Monica hug will make your day! I love her!
I love listening to the podcast today. Monica- I live on the Gulf Coast & taught Marine Science ( high school) for many years! Your CookieCon sea creature is awesome? I’m experimenting with cookie flavors too. I’d love to win & I’m planning to go to CC in Indy this fall. Hope to meet you both there!! My first CC!!!!
That is an amazing octopus cookie!
Pick me !!! I love learning new techniques !!!
Last year was my first CookieCon. I saw your cookie there but of course had no idea this was by you! Your cookie was amazing. Such detail, so beautiful.
I hope you pick me! Please, pretty please, pick me! (yes, I’m groveling!)
Absolutely love Monica. I met her in SLC and she was the sweetest person to me! I was a total newbie and she helped me out so much,
Wow! What a beautiful work of art! I had to do a double take! It definitely did NOT look like a cookie! You ladies inspire me!
This would be so great!
I enjoyed the Podcast. It was great to learn about Monica’s inspirations for her cookies, and that she actually draw them on paper. I am not an artist, but considering enrolling in some local art drawing classes. I love the cookie design for 2O,OOO Leagues Under The Sea..I remember going to the local theater to see the movie when I was very young, and I have the book on my “favorites” shelf. Since Bart is interested in marine biology, please go to the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) website, which is part of the College of William and Mary, and see the neat educational programs they have for elementary and middle school children. William & Mary is located in Williamsburg, Virginia….and the VIMS is located across the York River in Gloucester County. I would love to come go to Cookie Con;, all of this is new to me, and I think it is great how everyone is so helpful with others that want to learn more and have fun being creative. Thanks for making the podcast.
An absolute natural artist! I enjoy baking and the art of decorating too. But time & money by not having the right products and setup are against me. Such is life, lol! I love how she can just whip them out no biggie. I pray one of these days I’ve got it down pat like that myself. But until then I practice and try whenever I can. I love listening to and watching the podcast. and videos/pics. Great to go back to for ideas on technique. She’s a true inspiration! ❤️
Cookie decorating has become my passion and having a great time doing it
So cool! ❤
Just like everyone else, I’d love to win! Being a retired teacher, I was thrilled to hear Monica’s CC class will be so thought-provoking. That kind of class is just what I need to get my creative juices going. I am usually just trying to make the cookies others post, but such info will get me to do my own thing. Thanks Monica, and thanks for such a great podcast!
Hey Burt! You could be the first singing marine biologist on The Voice!
Amazing opportunity! Good luck to everyone!❤️
Counting down to Wednesday and praying I get to go to cookie con this year!
I love Monica and the podcast!!! I can’t wait till cookie con!!!!!
Oh gosh! I hope I squeaked in
Work of art! Never been to CookieCon. Love to decorate cookies. Would love to experience this event & meet all these talented people. Inspired!
