Do I need to have previous experience?
This is an advanced decorating course, so the videos do not explain basic concepts such as cookie baking or icing making and consistencies. However, all this information is very well detailed and explained in the PDF.
We recommend that if you have never decorated cookies, start by signing up for the Scrap Cookies Basic Cookies Course , also available at the Cake School.
Do I need special tools to do it?
The materials for this course can be found easily in large areas and specialized stores: pastry sleeves and nozzles, spatulas, brushes, coloring, a punch ... If you like decorating cookies, surely you already have them all.
Are the processed cookies edible?
Of course, and besides, they are delicious! These cookies are made with 100% edible ingredients, so you can consume them without fear. In some designs, pencil is used to trace the drawings, but the pencil for school use is not toxic and so little is used that it is not even dangerous. As for the alcohol that is used to paint, it is used precisely because it evaporates very quickly, so once they have dried, your cookies will also be free of it.
Can I make any cookie decoration once the course is done?
In this course you will learn the basis of many modern cookie decorating techniques. With your experience and creativity, you can apply them later and create new designs to create beautiful cookies, letting your imagination run wild.
