Christmas in July Cookie Decorating Class

July 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Who says you have to wait until December for Christmas cookies?
Interested in learning more about decorated sugar cookies?! A Pretty Smart Cookie is here to help! In this 2-hour class, we’ll cover the basics of sugar cookies (so – yes, it’s beginner friendly!), do some piping practice with Royal Icing, talk about how to strategize the best ways to decorate sugar cookies, and cover the general concepts around dough and icing! Everything you’ll need is provided in class along with a live in-person instructor – just bring a smile (and maybe an apron).
This month we’ll celebrate Christmas in July! It may be warm out, but Santa is always in the Christmas spirit!
You’ll leave class with a great understanding of the basics of sugar cookies plus a few cool techniques we’ll cover in class! I provide everything you will need from cookies, icing, sprinkles, and a box to take your awesome creations home in – I just need YOU! Each to-be-baker gets 6 cookies, 5 icing colors, sprinkles, and all the tools necessary to knock this cookie class out of the park! Everything is prepped right before class – so no baking or icing mixing required. Just decorate!
This class is for the beginner cookier or for the person who is just curious about what cookie decorating is all about! If you have limited experience with sugar cookies, found yourself frustrated with royal icing, or if you’re trying to have fun with family or friends, this is the class for you! We will be doing a fun Christmas in July themed set that tastes amazing and will look even better once you’ve completed your decorating!
This class is for ages 16 and up. It’s a time for the adults to enjoy themselves. BUT the techniques we learn are great for kids. Come learn how to decorate the cookies and purchase an add-on kit to take home and make the cookies with your family (more on that below)! The kits are great for kids at home, plus – I’ll send you the class PowerPoint so you can teach them yourself!
The class will be held at Doundrins Distilling in Cottage Grove, WI located at 300 Progress Drive, Suite F. Nervous about the parking situation? Don’t be! Parking is pretty easy – there is plenty of space in the parking lot. And the best part about having class at a distillery is that your ticket includes 1 drink!
Things to Bring
Wondering what you need to bring to have a successful time decorating? Well – nothing’s required – but here’s the things we recommend if you’d like to elevate your experience!
– Bring an apron! Things can get messy when you’re workin’ with royal icing – so grab an apron (bonus points if it’s cute – I’ll definitely be asking where you got it).
– Bring your glasses! Cookie decorating is pretty deatiled, so if things get blurry close up, glasses may be a great help.
– Bring your phone! I love it when students take pictures and videos throughout class – so bring a phone!
– Bring a mask if you’d like! These classes follow the state health guidelines, but if you’d like to wear a mask throughout class – please do! No one will look at you funny.
– Bring a good attitude! Cookies are fun, but they’re also challenging! A good attitude makes all the difference.
