This class is for the beginner cookier or for the person who is just curious about what cookie decorating is all about! If you have limited experience with sugar cookies, found yourself frustrated with royal icing, or if you're trying to have fun with family or friends, this is the class for you! We will be doing a fun theme set that tastes amazing and will look even better once you’ve completed your decorating!
This class is open to any child mature enough to follow step by step decorating instructions, but also work independently as instructions are given. Due to space restrictions, we do not have room for parents to stand by and watch their children in class. So unfortunately, your adorable kiddo cannot take the class alone. A parent must also purchase a seat and take the class as well - the good news is that means more delicious cookies to take home.
