Beginner Cookie Decorating

If you’ve never worked with royal icing or have dabbled just a little, this class will help you get the ball rolling. We’ll briefly talk about the basics of baking cookies and some tips and tricks of the trade, but then we’ll move right into the world of decorating. We will work step by step on each cookie to learn the various decorating techniques used with royal icing. There are five cookie designs planned, and we will keep things moving to get them all completed by the end of class. You will be taking them home with you along with an icing recipe, a sugar cookie recipe, decorating tool, cookie cutter, piping bags and a packet of seasonal sprinkles and/or cookie decorations. We’ll also discuss websites to check for additional tutorials, instructional blogs, recipes and vendors/suppliers. Open to students ages 12 and up. Students who have to withdraw must do so at least one week prior to the start of the course for a full refund.
