Cookie Decorating for Beginners - Summer Essentials
ABOUT THE TEACHER:
Hi, I’m Emily! I am the Owner and Cookie Decorator of Crumble Catering Co. I stumbled into the world of cookie design in 2015. I didn’t have the slightest clue about the basics of decorating cookies, but I knew I had a passion for baking and a best friend getting married—lingerie shaped cookies, get ready! It wasn’t long before I began receiving requests for custom orders, and I decided to leave the corporate world to make this cookie designing venture my full time business.
While I enjoy dreaming up custom designs for client orders, I have also fallen in love with teaching the techniques. The best part about a cookie decorating class is that it doesn’t matter whether you have an artistic background—I certainly didn't when I started! You just have to be open to learning something new, willing to take on a challenge, and motivated to apply yourself a bit.
I’m so excited to be working with the Level Up community and can’t wait to give you a taste of something sweet!
ABOUT THE CLASS:
Ready for some summertime sweetness? You’ve come to the right place!
Follow along with Emily of Crumble Catering Co. as she provides you with the step-by-step process of decorating these Summer Essentials in cookie form. Grab a piping bag and get your hands a little sugary!
In this class, you’ll learn how to work with royal icing using the following techniques:
- simple line details
- pressure piping
- basic textures
Each of these techniques will be practiced and then executed onto your themed cookies (a bikini top, bikini bottom, sunglasses, and a popsicle) that will have a pre-planned design chosen by Emily. You will work with a piping bag and a scribe tool to fine-tune the icing.
There are no silly questions, so Emily is happy to answer any along the way to help troubleshoot!
See you there!
