About the event

Interested in learning more about decorated sugar cookies?! Southern Belle Bakery is here to help! In this 2 hour long class, we'll cover the basics  of sugar cookies, you'll get royal icing and cookie recipes, and  we'll talk about how to strategize the best ways to decorate sugar cookies! Everything you'll need is provided at class along with live, in-person instruction.

You'll leave class with a great understanding of the basics of sugar cookies plus a few cool techniques  we'll cover in class! More details on refunds, credits, and FAQs are  below - looking forward to having you with us!

About the Sugar Cookie Class! 

This  class is for the beginner cookier or for the person who is just curious  about what cookie decorating is all about! If you have limited  experience with sugar cookies, found yourself frustrated with royal  icing, or if you're trying to have fun with family or friends, this is the class for you! We will be doing a fun Valentines theme set that tastes amazing and will look even better once you’ve completed your decorating!

We  provide everything you will need from cookies, icing, sprinkles, and a  box to take your awesome creations home in - we just need YOU!

This class is on February 11th from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm so we can have enough time to decorate and ask questions along the way.  Come by yourself, bring your best friend, or bring the family - we have  seating up to 12 people! It's a blast whether you're coming with a  friend, family member, or solo!

This class is good for ages 8+,  but if you'd like to leave the kiddos at home, purchase an add-on kit!  The kits are great for kids at home, plus - you can keep your instruction guide to recreate your cookies at home!

The class will be held at the Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham in Middletown, NY located at 19 Crystal Run Crossing, Middletown, New York 10941. Parking is free and easy!

 FAQ 

What will I be doing in the class?

  • Besides  having the most fun ever? We will be going over some cookie facts,  decorating techniques and you will be decorating your very own set of  cookies that you will take home with you that day.

Do you offer a virtual class?

  • At this time, we will not be offering virtual classes - but if you're interested, please email us for information on private in-person classes!

Can I purchase an additional take-home kit?

  • Yes!  Many parents or practicing cookiers purchase additional class kits to  take home and re-do the classes. You can purchase an add-on kit during  check-out. Your kit will be available at the end of your class - so  don't forget it!

Do I need to know how to bake?

  • Nope!  We will have the cookies pre-made for you and will give you the recipe on a laminated take-home card so you can create your own at home!

What will we learn in class?

  • You’ll  learn what goes into preparing royal icing, the value of different  icing consistencies, how to color icing, and tricks to fill piping bags  (believe me, it’s harder than it looks). You’ll also learn different  decorating techniques such as marbling, outlining, wet-on-wet, brush  embroidery, and painting. Techniques will vary depending on the class  and can be customized to your needs.

What do I need to bring?

  • Nothing!  Everything will be provided for you including our rather tasty sugar  cookies. All you need to do is join us and have fun! Messy decorator?  You can bring your own apron (or wear one of ours!) or just wear easy-to-wash clothing. There  is a Guide Book, so if you wear glasses, we'd encourage you to bring  them as well.

What age is best for cookie classes?

  • Our  classes are for almost any age! From youngsters to grandparents - come  on in and have some cookie fun with us! Our in-person classes are great  for age 8+; however, kiddos between 8 and 12 will need a parent taking the  class as well. If you think your child may be too young to enjoy the  in-person class, purchase an additional take-home kit! We'll provide the guide book and you can teach your kids in the comfort of your own  home.

Can just my child take the class?

  • We ask that all parents also attend the classes with their children under 12. For children over 12,  you can drop off your child to take the class and return to pick-up in 2 hours. Due to COVID space restrictions, we do not have room for parents to stand by and watch their children in class.  So unfortunately, no - your child under 12 cannot take the class alone, a parent  must also purchase a ticket and take the class as well - but we can  promise you this - it's super fun for all involved!

Can I bring a child that will not be participating?

  • We want everyone to have an absolute blast learning to decorate sugar cookies, especially you! In order to ensure the best experience for everyone, unticketed children will not be permitted at the class. However, I understand that even the best laid plans go awry so, if you are unable to attend the class due to childcare then, let me know and we can reschdule you to a future class within one year!

What will I bring home?

  • By the end of the class, you will have created a set of gorgeous cookies, ready to dry for 24-48 hours in their own box.   And of course, you’ll  have new skills, memories, and fun! Plus a swag bag as a thank you!

Can I sign up as an individual or as a group?

  • You  can sign up either as an individual, with a friend, or with a whole  group. The more the merrier! We are limited to a total of 10 to 12 seats  per class, so definitely sign up ASAP!

Where are the classes located?

  • This class will be held at the Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham in Middletown, NY - that address is 19 Crystal Run Crossing, Middletown, New York 10941.

I signed up for a class but can't make it?

  • :(  We understand that life happens so that’s why we allow you to cancel up  to 7 days before the class. You can always transfer your spot to a  friend though (and what a nice friend you are). Any cancelation after  the 7 days will be a class credit redeemable for up to 1 year from the  credit issue date. 

About Sugar Cookie Classes!

 

Who  doesn’t love getting out and doing something fun while also eating  delicious cookies!? That’s what Sugar Cookie Classes is all about!

Our  classes are based in Northern Virginia and cater to the beginner  cookier or people just looking to have fun learning a new skill. Whether  you just want a fun date, a girls-night-out or just want to explore  what cookie decorating is on your own- we have a seat for you.

For our classes, all you will need to bring is yourself  and we take care of the rest.  If you'd  like, grab an apron, and bring eyeglasses so you can see the  instructional guide book. You will get a set of pre-baked cookies  (pretty tasty if I do say so myself) as well as all the supplies you will need to decorate them.

Our classes are two hours, and that will give us enough time to decorate the cookies and answer any  questions along the way. You will leave the class with your very own  box of your very own newly decorated cookies!

We have classes  throughout the year which highlight different themes so make sure to  sign up for our newsletter so you can get in on the cookie action!

General Cancellation Policy for Classes: 

You Don't Show Up Or Email Prior To Class:

  • If we do not hear from you before your class’s start time, and you do not show up for class, we won’t be able to offer you a refund or a credit regardless of whether you're sick. So please reach out to us if you’re feeling sick before class starts!

You purchased  a Class Take-Home Kit and a Class Ticket:

  • If you purchased both a class ticket and a take-home kit and email prior to the 7 day refund policy, we'll be  happy to offer you either a full refund or a class credit for both your  class ticket and DIY kit. If it's after the 7-day cut-off, but 3 days  prior to class, we can offer you a class credit and DIY Kit credit. If  it's beyond the three days, you may request a class credit; however,  you'll need to send a family or friend to pick up your DIY kit from  class on your class date. We can't offer refunds on already assembled  DIY kits.

Add a Sugar Cookie Class Kit to your Order! 

Order  your sugar cookie class kit and take the class home with you to teach a  child or friend! Our class kits come with everything you'll use in  class and you can keep your guide book so you can follow our step-by-step instructions from home! Sugar Cookie Kits are created  before your class and you'll pick them up and take them with you after  class.

How long can a kit last? Depending on how you store your  icing, your kits can last for a week or longer. Freezing cookies keep  them fresh for a long time, but we recommend using your kit as soon as  possible - ideally in the first week after you've taken it home.

Virtual  class attendees, have friends over and add extra class kits to your  ticket order! It's a fun and affordable way to get more people safely in  on the fun! Your class ticket will include 1 Zoom link for a single  computer and 1 class kit. So if you have 2 additional people joining  you, purchase 1 class ticket + 2 add-on kits for you all three to have a  blast in one location!

Allergens: Eggs, gluten, and nuts are present in the  kitchen used to bake these cookies and icing. Please consider your  allergies before registering.
