“Cookie Decorating with Royal Icing” is a beginning class to learn some basic decorating techniques.

Students will be encouraged to express themselves creatively.

There is a $25 fee due at the first-class meeting (cash or check only made payable to the instructor). This fee will cover all ingredients needed in the course including cookies prebaked for some class dates, food coloring, paintbrushes, cookie cutters to be shared in the class and a set of three piping tips, a coupler, and a reusable piping bag for each student to keep.
