Hi, all, just a quick heads up! I'm thrilled to be continuing our series of live chats and Cookier Close-up interviews this month with CookieCon 2017 instructor @Amy Clough'D 9, aka Amy Clough of Clough'D 9 (pronounced "cloud nine") Cookies!
Amy is a three-time CookieCon veteran, who's amassed numerous Sugar Show awards, including one for an amazingly lifelike frog, shown here! At this year's CookieCon, the subject of her lessons was adding texture to cookies using stenciling, piping, and other cool techniques. In our chat on April 22, we'll learn more about Amy's teaching experience, the specifics of her favorite texturing techniques, and anything else you'd like to ask. (I'm dying to know how she created the skin on that frog! ) In the meantime, start gathering your questions for her by checking out her site and reading her brief bio below.
Amy Clough started decorating cookies in the fall of 2011, and quickly fell in love with all things cookie. She left her teaching career after 15 years to create cookies full time, as Clough’D 9 Cookies. She works from her commercial kitchen studio that her husband built in their backyard. Between her cookie orders, Amy is mom to two boys on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
And, remember, whenever you have your questions ready, you can post them to her chat room here. I hope to "see" you on the 22nd!
