McGoo U

McGoo U Fight Song
to be sung with oven-mitted hand over heart

Hail to thee our alma mater
As we start to bake!
Heat our ovens to 350
Ready to decorate!

Aprons on,
cutters out,
butter soft.

McGoo University:
May our cookies never crumble
In thy bakery!

Oh!  That song always gets me a little misty-eyed!  I am proud to announce that a long time dream of mine is becoming a reality.  And when I say long time, I mean since I was a little pigtailed girl.  I always wanted to be a mom, an artist, and a teacher when I got big.  

Well I guess I'm a big girl now because I have started McGoo U where I get to teach students how I cookie; the process, the recipes, the art of cookieying!  I am so excited.  I tested out the waters on Facebook to see who would be interested and just 8 hours later the first two classes were full!  I realize that not everyone is on Facebook, (who are you crazy people anyway!?) and am adding a class on Saturday, December 14th to accommodate more students.  

There are not a lot of spots, and these first students are definitely guinea pigs, but I am having so much fun planning the curriculum.  We will be learning a lot of techniques including piping, dimension, airbrushing, and painting.  This first class is Christmas Cookies 101 and I am doing 3 sessions.  December 6th, December 7th, and December 14th.  the 6th and 7th are sold out, but there are still a few chairs available on the 14th.  (Update: December 14th is now SOLD OUT.)

The campus is located on the beautiful central coast of California in Paso Robles and class will be from 10:00 - 3:00.  Please contact Chancellor McGoo at for details on enrollment.  

Courses for next year will be announced here and on Facebook.

Halloween Goodness

It's that time of year again to introduce the Adam's family Halloween alter egos.

First up is the baby of the family.  Don't let his creepy skeleton face fool you, this jester is a snuggler... I mean juggler... he'll snuggle you're jugular?  Oh, I don't know!  He's a riddle!  Introducing:  DENVER the creepy, cuddly jester!

Next up is a sassy pirate princess.  She has attitude enough for a whole barnacle covered crew that will last through the whole voyage.  You can bet yer blasted bilge rat that she collected enough candy booty to fill Davey Jone's locker with this dandy rigging.  Meet SAGE, the infamous pirate heartbreaker!

And now we have a very lively lady who seems to be a bit... hungry.  She will settle for kit kat bars, but what she's really after is a piece of your mind!  I hope you've been preparing for the zombie apocalypse because this little lady is dying to lunch with you, and she is no slow, drooling deadhead... she's FAST and coming to get you.  Meet:  BAILEY, the hungry zombie who is proud to say she created her whole undead fashion!

Now we have something a little wild, but do not fear! this lion has been well trained.  He's traded his "King of the Jungle" status to discover his life long dream of being a ballerina.  His next trick is to make the ringmaster disappear!  Meet MR. JOHN, the sweetest wittle kitty cat in all the circus! {who is plotting a takeover}

And speak of the devil!  Here she is:  The Ringmaster to rule them all!  She has her hands full running the show and whipping all these characters into shape.  She keeps this 3 ring circus performing to her big top demands.  Don't let the ruffles and feathers fool you, she's a no-nonsense kind of gal who gets what she wants.  Ta DA!  Meet LIZ, the circus ringleader!

And they lived happily ever after eating piles and piles and piles of candy... and piles...
