Fancy Cookies 5 – 8 July
Our camps are a great place to experience the excitement of baking and creating baked goods without artificial ingredients and preservatives. Because we make everything from scratch, kids must be old enough to follow instructions independently. Therefore, our camps are suitable for children age 10 and up.
For this particular session patience is a must and students must be able to stay focused for a couple of hours. For the most part adult supervision is not required, but we highly recommend that an adult is present when the cookies go in and out of the oven.
During this camp session we will be focusing on baking sugar cookies suitable for decorating with royal icing, making royal icing for piping and flooding your cookies, the correct consistency for piping and flooding cookies and how to store your cookies. We teach the same skills and techniques taught in our adult classes but at a fraction of the cost. This introductory lesson is essential for every aspiring cookie artist. Once you know the basics this class can set you up for hours and hours of cookie decorating fun.
What our week looks like:
Monday: Cut out our templates and make the sugar cookie dough.
Tuesday: Cut out sugar cookies and bake sugar cookies
Wednesday: Make royal icing, learn how to mix and prepare your icing, make royal icing runouts, start decorating some cookies
Thursday: Finish decorating cookies.
Have an apron handy, a water-bottle and always tie your hair up when working with food. You will need plenty of space and it is always a great idea to start of with a tidy and organized work space.
