Cookie Class FAQ


What will I be doing in the class?

Besides having the most fun ever? I will be going over some cookie facts, decorating techniques and you will be decorating your very own set of cookies that you will take home with you that day. 


Can I purchase an additional take-home kit?

Yes! Many parents or practicing cookiers purchase additional class kits to take home and re-do the classes. You can purchase an add-on kit during check-out. Your kit will be available at the end of your class - so don't forget it! If you’re skipping class and just ordering the kit – message me to scheduled a pick-up time! :) 


Do I need to know how to bake?

Nope! No baking history required. I will have the cookies pre-made for you along with the icing already mixed and colored. Have a little decorating experience under your belt… er… apron? Come on too! I can help with questions on icing mixing and dough spread!


What will we learn in class?

You’ll learn what goes into preparing royal icing, the value of different icing consistencies – we’ll touch on tips and tricks to make your cookies look even better than they taste (and they taste good)! You’ll also learn different decorating techniques depending on the class theme such as marbling, outlining, wet-on-wet, brush embroidery, and painting. Or hey – go off script and make your own designs – it’s your class!


What do I need to bring?

Nothing but a smile! Everything will be provided for you including my (rather tasty) sugar cookies. All you need to do is join us and have fun! Messy decorator? You can bring your own apron or just wear easy-to-wash clothing. There is a PowerPoint for reference, so if you wear glasses, we'd encourage you to bring them as well. Oh – and bring your phone – I love photos! 


What age is best for cookie classes?

Our classes are for almost any age! From youngsters to grandparents - come on in and have some cookie fun with us! Our in-person classes are great for any age; however, kiddos under 18 will need a parent taking the class as well. If you think your child may be too young to enjoy the in-person class, purchase an additional take-home kit! We'll send you the class PowerPoint, and you can teach your kids in the comfort of your own home.


Can just my child take the class?

We ask that all parents also attend the classes with their children under 18. For children over 18, can come on their own or you can drop off your child to take the class and return to pick-up in 1.5 hours (sometimes class runs 2 hours, but you'll want to be there when they get done if they don't drive!) But I promise you this - it's super fun for all involved! 


What will I bring home?

By the end of the class, you will have created a set of gorgeous cookies ready to dry for 6-10 hours in their own box. I’ll send you a link with a list of the tools we used in class so that you can recreate these cookies at home. And of course, you’ll have new skills, memories, and fun!


Can I sign up as an individual or as a group?

You can sign up either as an individual, with a friend, or with a whole group. The more the merrier! 


Where are the classes located?

This class will be held at 970 State Route 1684, Hickory, KY 42066.


I signed up for a class but can't make it?  

:( Cancellations/refunds will be reviewed on a case by case basis, and can only be made 7 days prior to the class. You can always transfer your spot to a friend though (and what a nice friend you are). If within 7 days, and it is deemed appropriate, a class credit for a future class will be given instead of a refund. 


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! There’s a reference slide deck to help you decorate, but if things get blurry far away, seeing glasses may be a great bet. 
  • Bring your phone! I love it when students take pictures throughout class – so bring a phone!
  • Bring a good attitude! Cookies are fun, but they're also challenging! A good attitude makes all the difference.
