On the hunt for new indoor activities? Master cookie decorating techniques with expert cookie and cake artist, Anna Maria Roche, in this live streaming class for beginners!

In this live online class, you'll skip the baking and focus on the fun stuff: cookie decorating! Anna Maria will virtually guide you as you learn how to decorate five sugar cookies (provided in your craft box) using royal icing.

Royal icing is a mixture of fresh egg whites or meringue powder, water and icing sugar lightly beaten to the required constancy. It has been used to cover and decorate wedding cakes for years but fell out of fashion with the invention of fondant. It is however still used to decorate cookies, gingerbread houses as well as fine piping details on wedding cakes.

The smooth thick constancy of royal icing will harden when exposed to air and dry leaving a glossy shine. The decorated cookies will keep for several weeks.

During the class, you'll be taken through the fundamentals of royal icing, including basic piping skills, like drop line piping, flooding, how to hold the piping bag and how to apply royal icing on the cookie. You will learn how to pipe roses, lines, polka dots and a marble technique.

The learning outcome from this class can be applied to many other cookie designs and occasions. And at the end of the class, you will have five pretty cookies and all the skills to continue cookie decorating at home.

Please note: Gluten-free and dairy-free can be catered for, simply request this when booking.
