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 the message and complete the design with moulded roses.

A lovely evening, great fun and sociable & learnt new skills. The tutor was lovely and so thorough. I was nervous as I'm not the most artist of people but she made me feel very comfortable and explained everything well.

Nice relaxed class, lots to learn. I liked that we got to use the moulds. Really helpful, friendly people. Brilliant tutor, always motivates you + reminds you that you can do things even if you don't think you can. Course content what I expected - great. Price didn't feel quite as good a value as other 2 hour courses.
