First Decorating Class

A friend suggested I teach a decorating class at church to help raise money for Ukraine (as my cookies sales do). So last night, I did my first class. It was such fun.....and the women seemed to really enjoy themselves. They asked if I'd do it again.....we shall see.

It was a LOT of work. I had to prepare LOTS of decorating bags so that there wouldn't be such a long wait to decorate. I told the class that I did all the hard work so that they could do the best part of cookie decorating. :) The clean up after wards was dreadful. I had been on my feet for several hours, had done lots and lots of prep work for the event in my kitchen half the day, and then came home to clean way too many tips and couplers. I was crawling to bed last night.

I thought you might like to see a few pics from the class.

Here's a pic of me as I talked with the class and demonstrated a few things.

My daughter, Allison, helping the decorators. She was a HUGE help. :)


More pics of my demonstration.








I've got some new cookie pics to share, but it is late and I've got to get up at 4 AM for work in the morning. I'll try to post the pics tomorrow afternoon when I get home. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Hello Pam, this looks wonderful.
What lucky ladies to be learning from the best.
Good luck with the class, I'm sure it is a lot of work but at the end it will be rewarding.

What a neat idea! I would have loved to join your class :)

Do those ladies know how lucky they are? :) -- wish I could attend!

I often do cookie decorating sessions for family groups -- and I do much of the work too. My boyfriend's parents help a lot -- we decorate at their house since they have more room, and they share the cookie baking prep. For all the work though, it's still a fun event.

Thanks everyone. I wish I could have all of you over in my kitchen so we could decorate cookies together. :)

Pam! This looks like so much fun. I'm doing a decorating party with a troop of Daisies at the end of this month. I hope I have the same success. We're going to decorate...daisies :)

Thanks for sharing!

Pam said...

Anne....somehow I think your class is going to be more challenging than mine. I had a couple of young girls there....and they were a little harder. I don't think they liked how much I talked. ;)


That's right, Lisa....you were here over the weekend. I forgot.

The decorating class was Thursday evening... so you probably would have missed it anyway. Where are you from?
