Cookie Con Classes

I’m super excited to be attending CookieCon in Salt Lake City, Utah this year! I’ve heard so many fantastic things about this event, so I’m thrilled to be a part and to meet some fantastic decorators and students! I’ll be attending as a Pre-CookieCon instructor and as a vendor. If you are interested in taking any of my classes, class registration is completed here and through paypal, and not through CookieCon.

Animal Cookies with Fondant, Wednesday, September 23, 8 am-12 pm

Fondant isn’t just for cakes. To be honest, I don’t love the taste/texture of fondant on cakes; but on cookies, it is a delightful sweet compliment, as well as a very practical decorating method! In this hands-on class we’ll start by tasting cookies using several different brands of fondant (and candy clay). Next, we’ll use various tools and techniques for fun textures, sculpting techniques, and edible frosting sheets. Finally we’ll create fondant pieces to create adorable accents. All of the supplies are included. You’ll complete at least a half dozen decorated cookies and a mini cookie scene.
$110,  limited to 12 students

All that Glitters,   Wednesday, September 23, 2 pm-6 pm
In this hands-on class we will be using lots of different media to achieve shimmer and sparkle. Learn what is edible and what is not edible for use on cookies. Then put these edible shimmers to use while we decorate some fabulous cookies using buttercream, rolled fondant, wafer paper, and royal icing. We’ll be using metallic and pearl sprays, dusts, paint, and more. All of the supplies are included. You’ll complete at least a half dozen decorated cookies.

$110,  limited to 12 students. FILLED. If you are interesting in being on the wait list in case of a cancellation, please fill out the form below.
