Valentine's Day Cookie Decorating - Beginner to Intermediate
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:
Took down the tree, popped some bottles, and now you're ready to jump into the next holiday?! Get your hands a little sugary and come decorate these Valentine's Day themed cookies with Emily of Crumble Catering Co. They'll give you all the heart eyes!
In this class, you’ll learn how to work with royal icing using the following techniques:
- sectioned flooding
- calligraphy lettering
- simple + detailed lines
- pressure piping
- basic textures
Each of these techniques will be practiced and then executed onto your themed cookies (lips, 'be mine' speech bubble, balloon bunch, heart eyes) 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!
