Class Description: 

Celebrate the no-school day by joining us as for a jam-packed 3-hour pastry arts workshop that will explore the sweet world of Cookie Decorating!  

Expect lots of hands-on time with experienced instructor Leesa Yates as she teaches you how to make the right kind of cookie dough for rolling, cutting and decorating!  You’ll learn proper mixing, and measuring (yes, there is a right way!), oven temps, equipment, how to read a recipe, ingredients, and much more.

Then it’s your turn to get involved as you roll the dough out (the right way!) and then cut shapes and get it into the oven for baking. Leesa will then show you how to make Royal Icing which is the one and only best icing for cookie decorating. You’ll mix your own icing to achieve the correct consistency, and learn how to use icing tips, piping bags, color mixing and more. 

The word for the day is “groovy” as we create cookies that reflect that mood.  Think Tie-Dye, VW Vans, Peace Signs and Flowers…even a little something to celebrate President’s Day!  She will teach cookie decorating techniques like piping, flooding and more. Then it’s your turn to create your own beautiful cookies using those techniques  you’ve learned.  Expect lots of rave reviews when you arrive home with your beautifully decorated cookies to show off to your family and friends. (NOTE: Students should bring a sack lunch)
