Woo hoo! Our 2018 CookieCon Speakers Series continues (and concludes) with this last (but not least) CookieCon instructor live chat with none other than Katy Metoyer of Sugar Dayne. Katy is perhaps best known for her avant-garde, impressionistic seaside-themed cookies, like the beauties pictured below. Since 2017, she's also been the proud owner of a brick-and-mortar cookie shop, which I suspect we'll learn a lot more about during the chat! I'm so thrilled to be hosting Katy, as I've admired her work for a long time, but have never had the good fortune of meeting her!
(1) Please feel free to enter advance questions now by following the instructions at the top of this chat page. (As always, it's super helpful for questions to be logged early, so our guests are able to prepare answers beforehand and to field more questions during live chat time.) To help inform your questions, please review Katy’s bio, website, and social media links, all below.
(2) Please note that any advance questions will reveal one at a time, in the order received, only after the chat goes live. Do not expect questions or answers to appear immediately.
(3) Last but not least, as with all of these chats, you have a special opportunity to see inside the minds of some extremely talented decorators, so I encourage you to do your homework before jumping on the chat. Again, please review Katy's info below.
Katy Metoyer. After seeing a platter of decorated cookies at a party, Katy was intrigued and started learning all she could about this newfound world of cookies. After experiencing a sudden loss, Katy dove into cookies as a sort of therapy, opening herself up to new possibilities, friendships, and adventures. In 2017, she opened her brick-and-mortar shop, Sugar Dayne Cookies.
Katy lives in Hermosa Beach, California, USA. She is a wife and a mom to two boys. When she's not in her cookie studio, she loves paddle-boarding to visit her town's resident whale, skating, going to the beach, and watching her son play baseball.
Katy claims to be “no artist”, and she doesn’t do cookies for the recognition, fame, or popularity. She does them to express herself and help herself heal through decoration, but mostly to bond with her cookie friends.

Katy and I look forward to "seeing" you at the chat!
