The Art of Cookie Decorating

Step by Step Cookie Workshops

After several years of decorating cookies both as a hobby and business, I've finally found time to teach others my cookie decorating knowledge. I love decorating cookies and I finally get to help teach others the fun world of edible art. Not only do they make fun, unique gifts but they are also a creative outlet where you get to play with a new medium and combine various art techniques to create your own style. 

I offer various levels of classes at spacious local locations.

Class tickets are sold in my online store. Limited seats are available for each class and they often sell out quickly.
