Hi Everyone!

I KNOW for a fact there are threads on this, but when I did a search I couldn't come up with anything. It never lets me move to the 2nd page of search results!!

Anyway, I have a regular client that would like me to do an adult cookie decorating class for Christmas. She wants to get the girls together for girls night out. I'll bring all of the supplies, including cookies, bags, tips, royal icing, etc and teach them how to decorate.

Does anyone else do these? If so, how much do you charge PP? Would you just take the supplies, divded by the amount of people and then add your hourly rate?

Thanks! icon_smile.gif

can't offer any advise, just that maybe you would be a better response in the cookie forum.

No advise either on how to charge for such a thing, but you might try using google and searching "cookie decorating party on cake central"
I often get much better results searching that way than with the CC search, it really doesn't work at all.
Good luck!

When I did a cookie decorating class for a local community college, the price for each student was $35 for a 3 hour class. I would think it would be similar for what you're planning.

I just recently did a 2.5 hour class and charged $30. Each person decorated 6 cookies and went home with a bag filled with 3 tips (#1, #2, #3), 3 disposable icing bags, 3 coupler sets, 3 disposable icing bag ties and 5 tablespoons of meringue powder. The starter kit was a huge hit!
