We will prepare vanilla cookie dough for you and bake 2 heart shaped cookies for you.
You will use moulds to shape 2 cookies which we will then bake and you will decorate using painted techniques and cut outs. One heart shaped cookie you will pipe and flood; then learn how to create pulled hearts. The remaining cookie you will ice in sugarpaste, use fun font stamps to emboss a message, paint or flood the message and complete the design with moulded flowers and leaves.
