I was contacted by the events coordinator from my neighborhood housing office(military post).
They are planning a cookie decorating event for the children & want me to be the 'teacher'. For the most part I do cakes, cake pops, and cupcakes....but I dabble in decorated cookies.
Anyway, I was hoping to get some tips or advice on holding a simple cookie decorating class for children. The cookies will be round and I was thinking of showing 3 different design ideas. Perhaps santa's belly, ornament, and the melted snowman design?
I normally use royal icing and pipe onto my cookies....but I'm not sure if this is the best idea for children? What do you think? Any suggestions for an easier way to decorate?
I also need to keep budget in mind, because this will be a free event. So, suggestions on how to keep the cost down are welcome as well.
