Peter Cottontail's Hippity Hoppity Family Cookie Baking & Decorating Workshop
Easter is right around the corner, so gather the family and hop on over to our kitchen for a special 4-hour pastry fundamentals class that will cover serious and useful cookie baking and decorating techniques and tips. You'll be making your own colorful and unique cookies in no time.
We invite all you “kids” (ages 5 and up) to experience this fun family activity.
Our Head Bunny, Rachel Van Stratton, is a cookie decorator extraordinaire, so you’ll be learning from a very talented cookie pastry artist. It will be a busy morning as you explore the fundamentals of cookie making, rolling, baking and decorating.
Rachel will show you how to make a basic Vanilla Sugar Cookie Dough, then move on to tips and techniques for rolling it out, cutting them and baking.
While the cookies are baking and cooling, she’ll get your imagination flowing as she instructs how to whip up a batch of Buttercream Icing. Then she’ll dive into decorating techniques like consistencies, coloring, piping, flooding practice and learning about decorating supplies, like tipless bags and scribe tools.
You’ll get down and dirty into the decorating details as you practice what you’ve learned and work on colorful designs, step-by-step. Getvaluable hands-on experience as she shows you how to use these techniques to transform a plain cookie into some of her favorite Easter and spring-themed designs – think pretty flowers, bunnies, colored eggs and more.
With all the great tricks and tips that you'll learn today, you’ll have the confidence and know-how to re-create beautiful cookies (from scratch) at home for Easter - or any special occasion.
Of course, we’ll send you home with your sweet decorated cookie creations in a baker’s box, all ready to show off… and to EAT, of course! Reserve early - this fun family workshop will sell out fast!

· Note that the Waiver requires that you provide (1) a phone numberwhere you can be reached during the class if necessary and (2) name(s) of any additional people who are authorized to pick upthe child after class.
· We encourage you to print off a copy of this Waiver, sign it and either 1) scan and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org 2) bring it to class with your student. Without an appropriately signed Waiver your child will not be allowed to attend class. We are sorry but we cannot make any exceptions to this rule. Also note that If someone other than the parent signs a Waiver, they will need a legal document to be presented that shows without question that they have the legal authority to sign a Waiver on behalf of your child at that time.
What To Wear To Class: For safety reasons, we also recommend that students wear close-toed shoes, long pants and have long hair pulled back.
If Your Child Plans To Attend Class With Someone Else, For On-Site Classes, when your child arrives, please ask them to check in with our Class Assistant who will give them information as to where they will be seated. We will be arranging our classrooms to allow for social distancing. In order to comply with governmental orders and for the protection of our guests and staff, your child must wear a mask when here at The Culinary Center of Kansas City. If your child is planning to sit next to someone attending with them, we would suggest arriving at least 20 minutes prior to the same start time of the class so that we can address that request. Both students would need to be comfortable with the request to be seated together. Thank you!
Only Registered Students Allowed In The Classroom During Class: This is so your child will have the best possible experience and the instructors have their full attention. Parents should plan to pick up their students at the end of the advertised hours for their class.
Important Information Regarding Children With Special Needs: Our cooking instructors are skilled in teaching culinary education at an age appropriate level. Several of our instructors even have early childhood and teaching background and certification. However, we are not equipped to work with, nor are these classes designed for, children who may have special needs, issues with focus, or difficulty with sitting still to listen and concentrate on the instructor or issues with relating to other students in a classroom setting. When we encounter a student who requires significant special attention, the experience for the other students suffers. While our class and cooking camps are well staffed, we just don’t have the staff to be able to allocate someone to work directly with your child for the entire class. Should we identify a situation where we believe a student falls within one or more of these categories, we will be contacting you to pick up your students. Unfortunately, we will not be able to issue a refund for all or any part of the class or camp fees. Please feel free to call us to discuss any questions or concerns that you feel should be discussed in advance of your child’s class. Please be aware of our 3-day cancellation policy.
