Are you new to cookie decorating? Do you know the basic things you need to know to make pretty cookies? Do you have a friend that wants to learn how to make decorated sugar cookies?

I’ve got some exciting news! People have been asking me to teach cookie decorating classes for the past several years and to be honest, I wasn’t feeling well so I didn’t teach. That’s all about to change! Thanks to you all helping me overcome “Bouncer” I feel great so I’m teaching four Cookie Camp Classes this year.

These classes are for people that are new to cookie decorating.  We’ll learn about the Bearfoot Basic which will teach you a ton of cookie decorating information where you can get hands-on experience. While you’re learning, ask questions and we’ll get the answers for you.

If you come to Cookie Camp, you’ll leave confident and ready to decorate the cookies of your dreams!

  • This is a great way to learn about royal icing and create the sugar cookies of your dreams.
