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 will work step by step on each cookie to learn the various decorating techniques used with royal icing, specifically piping/outlining, flooding, and wet-on-wet techniques. There are five cookie designs planned, and we will keep things rolling to get them all completed by the end of class. You will be taking them home with you in a bakery box, along with a royal icing recipe, a sugar cookie recipe, a decorating tool, a cookie cutter and a packet of seasonal sprinkles and/or cookie decorations. All
supplies are provided. This semester, class will be shortened to two hours by offering an informational handout, as well as a video, via email, with basics of baking cookies, tips and tricks of the trade, and a list of places online to check out for additional tutorials, instructional blogs, recipes, and vendors/suppliers for those who want to take it to the
next level. Ages 10+.

Students who have to withdraw must do so at least 5 days prior to the start of the
course for a full refund.
