I signed us up for a flow cookie decorating class in a fit of insane optimism before I resigned myself to being sick for all eternity. The date of which happened to coincide with a temporary slow-down in face drainage so we went. And let me preface this with: There was A LOT of hand washing. We tried really hard not to share.
We learned how to make an outline, fill it in, make spiderwebs, flowers, hearts, Christmas trees and how to use luster dust. The boys were naturals! I really want to take the advanced class soon.
There were adults and kids taking this class, my youngest is 6, but the instructor said they've even had 3's in class! She was just as comfortable instructing the kids as she was showing the adults what's up. I couldn't be more impressed.
My youngest was very prolific. He made two boxes worth of cookies!
My eldest made lots of cookies, too and this guy was my favorite of the day. The best skull and crossbones EVAR!
Most of these are mine. It was a fun day. I hope we can do it again soon, but in the mean time, if you need me, I'll be honkin' and blowin' on my couch.
If you would like to take a class and live in the Bothell, WA area, Dawn's Candy and Cake is the place to do it. She's got lots of reasonably priced classes on candy making, cake decorating, cookie decorating and there is even a cake decorating club that meets there regularly! And when it's time to try it at home, she can hook you up with everything you need, handy, right? This is not a paid advertisement, I just believe in supporting local business!
