One of my favorite classes to teach is my Cookie Decorating Workshop. From renting the kitchen at my daughter’s preschool 7-8 years ago, to private small group classes, to the last few years of workshops at Romp‘s kitchen, it’s been a course that never gets old!
This past month I taught a great group of aspiring cookie decorators all my tips and tricks for my no-fail sugar cookies. The class begins with an introduction to making the dough to baking perfectly shaped cookies. As we wait for the cookies to bake, we mix up my buttercream icing. The attendees are able to watch and observe as I decorate a sample set of cookies and then are set off to decorate their own! I’m always very impressed with how well each person does (and I think they are too!).
For our spring workshop we partnered with Wilton and gave the space a colorful palette filled with sprinkles. The tables were lined with rainbow colored cake pedestals of dessert from donuts, lemon bars, rice krispy treats and cupcakes to stacks of naked cookies ready to be decorated. Attendees were treated to some of my favorite Wilton products like the best cookie spatula ever, to the cutest ice cream cone cookie cutters and all kinds of goodies in between.
It’s always so flattering to have such incredible people come out to spend the evening with me. I love meeting each person, hearing where they are from and how they came across Jenny Cookies! We had a few out-of-staters from Oregon and Iowa which is something I really appreciate. It’s hard to say goodbye at the end of the evening!
Because we’ve had such a huge response for an online course (work in progress…), I want to treat someone to the next best thing: a swag bag from the Jenny Cookies Workshop! Enter below at the bottom of this post to win all the goodies to make your own summer themed cookies!
