My classes are limited to 12 participants.  They are low key and focus on learning and having fun.  No experience is needed, just a desire to learn something new.  This is not a "paint by number" kind of class.  I will guide you in technique but encourage you to explore and create using your imagination.  You can never ruin a decorated sugar cookie, they will always be sweet to eat. Come join us.  

Disclaimer:  I am not a professional Cookie Artist, I just have a love for creating cookies and want to share this with you in a calm and welcoming atmosphere.
