i am in michigan and a beginner... would anyone know of somebody offering a cookie decorating class? i'm in grand rapids area.. I seen a post on one in ohio, but it was lost due to IT glitch..thank you...laurie
Check your local cake supply stores. Ours here usually have two a year. Also, check Michaels if you have one. I took a cookie bouquet class there. For now, here are some great cookie books for you:
Toba Garrett (you'll find her glace in the recipe section):
Valerie Peterson (you'll find the Dark Chocolate Rolled cookies from this book in the recipe section):
I went to the video site cakelady1978 recommended. I liked it. It seems so easy after watching someone else do it. I didn't like having to sign up for something. What did you think about that?
Otherwise, this seemed like a cool way to learn alone. What did you think Laurie?
I also went to yummyarts.com It will be interesting to see their other videos. Yeah, if it's free information it was weird signing up, but if it doesn't cost me, I'll sign up.
yup, i've gone to yummyarts, i have the books you mentioned... but, i am really a visual/hands on learner... i'll look into the michaels class.. thanx for responding!!
Plenty of info and intructions, they even sell cards to teach you how to decorate individual cookie designs. You can order cards with step by step instructions.
i took a couple workshops last year in dearborn thru ices. i haven't heard anything this year
