Hi, all! 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 this chat, 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.
If you can't make the chat, no worries! You can log your 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 the live chat time.)
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.
Also, as with all of these chats, you have a special opportunity to see inside the minds of some extremely talented decorators. I challenge you to do your homework and push our guests with unexpected - maybe even tough - questions!
Again, I truly hope to "see" you there!
