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 liz@artymcgoo.com for details on enrollment.  

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

  1. It's always so lovely when we are able to realize one of our dreams. Congratulations on realizing one of your Liz and best wishes with your classes. No doubt you will have the rapt attention of all your students and because of your wonderful teaching skills will be producing many proud and talented cookie decorators. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  3. Is there a page where we need what supplies to get such as what kinds of food colors or even the brushes? Are they food painting brushes?
