The Mill Creek Park hosted a cookie decorating class for beginners on June 26.
The theme of the class was beach and ocean and was taught by Cindy Velt at the MetroParks Farms.
The class cost $36 to attend for residents and $40 for non-residents, and pre registration was required.
Included in the cost was all of the supplies, including four tubes of royal icing in different colors, 10 cookies, multiple icing tips, an edible marker and tooth picks to decorate the cookies.
The cookie shapes were all diverse but fit with the theme, including a fish, bikini, shell, bubbles and more.
Participants were allowed to keep the cookies they created, and given the short bread recipe to recreate them at home.
During the class Velt provided step-by-step instructions to creating art with the cookies.
“Making cookies look really good can be easy if you know how to do it right,” Velt said.
She provided tricks and instructions on certain techniques to create the most ascetically pleasing cookie art.
Velt also allowed for creativity on the part of the students, letting them pick their own colors and patterns for the cookies as she instructed.
The next cookie decorating event with Velt will take place on July 17 where participants will fill peach baked goods.
