Edible Drawings: Decorating Cookies
March 26, 2019 – March 29, 2019
In this workshop students are introduced to the tools, materials and techniques to create elaborately decorated cookies. Through demonstrations and practice you will explore the design potential of line, texture, scale and color by decorating a series of gingerbread cookies with royal icing, sanding sugar and candies. Discussions include drawing, design and planning layered compositions. Using only round pastry tips, participants will practice flooding, piping and embellishing to become familiar with the eccentricities of the tools and medium. Students will leave class with a collection of cookies and the foundation necessary to continue their exploration of this unusual craft. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $400
