LIVE COOKIE CLASSES

TAKE YOUR DECORATING TO THE NEXT LEVEL

If Emily learned one thing from her time spent in the classroom as a high school physics teacher, it was that authentic learning comes from discussions, asking questions, and hands on experience. After launching a few pre-recorded courses, she felt like something was missing. That something was real life human interaction! 

Thus, the idea for live classes was born. 

These classes are not your typical "make these fun cookie designs with me!" Rather, they are skill development classes designed to teach cookie decorators techniques that can be used over and over with any set they make. By elevating their skills, cookie decorators will gain the confidence they need in their work so that they can develop their own unique personal style that will attract their ideal clients.

Are you ready to stand out?

Hey!
I
'm Emily.

I used to be a high school physics teacher with a cookie side hustle, but I left my teaching career to pursue my cookie business full time. I have transformed my cookie hobby into a designer cookie brand and now work with top event planners, photographers, and businesses in the Philadelphia area.

 

It’s so easy to feel lost in the cookie world and like you have to compete for customers. It is my goal to help you refine your skills so that you are able to stand out and can discover a decorating style that is uniquely you that can't be found anywhere else.

You want to develop your personal decorating style so that you can provide show stopping cookies that can't be found anywhere else...

BUT YOU CONSTANTLY FIND YOURSELF...

Lacking the confidence you need to be able to try new things because you compare yourself to other people on social media.

Wishing you could get more orders for the themes that excite you and would allow you to show off your personal style more.

Feeling like you can't really develop your own style because your customer don't give you full creative freedom. You feel tied to do the designs they send you rather than free to create your own designs. 

In a creative funk, doing the same designs over and over.

Sound Familiar?

THEN THESE CLASSES ARE FOR YOU.

here's the problem...

IMG_6082.JPG

Imagine taking a class that was more than a simple "design tutorial." Imagine learning new techniques that could be used with ANY theme or design to take the set from ordinary to show stopper.

You'd gain confidence in your own work and begin to appreciate other people's work rather without feeling the need to compare it to your own.

You'd be able to turn ANY theme into your own personal style which would eventually begin attracting the people who are your ideal clients.

Your cookies would be THE thing to have at any event and clients would be willing to pay top dollar for your work.

Clients would be so confident in your artistic abilities that you wouldn’t even have to ask for creative freedom, they would just give it to you without second thought.

Your cookies could be the go-to for high end event planners because they know you will be able to create something that will fit their event design perfectly.

WATERCOLOR BASICS

A strong foundation in painting is the key to success for more advanced techniques like florals.

 

In this class we will cover:

  • Paintbrush 101-learn about different paintbrush shapes and sizes and what techniques they are best used for

  • Everclear vs Water - should you use vodka or water to paint with? The answer can be both. Learn when & how to use both

  • Icing Disintegration Prevention - find out what you can do to prevent your base flood from breaking down when painting

  • Painting techniques - blending colors & simple techniques that can add a ton of personality to you sets!

PAINTING FLORALS

LIGHT & SHADOW

Painting Florals rather than piping them CAN actually be a huge time saver. They look elegant and turn your cookies into artwork, but can also save you time decorating (if done correctly).  

 

This class will cover:

  • Painting small florals & greenery -perfect for mini cookies or floral plaque cookies

  • Painting Large florals - statement florals that bring the wow factor to a cookie set

  • Practical florals - learn to paint beautiful florals quickly so that you can maximize your time

  • Floral designs - how to layout your florals to create a beautiful floral design that doesn't look messy.

If you're ready to be able to say yes to pet portraits, paint those character cookies, or use watercolor to add depth to any shape, this is your class. Learn to flood a whole set white and bring it to life with watercolor. 

This class will cover:

  • Knowing where to add light and shadow to make something look 3D

  • Using a projector for pet portraits

  • Getting technical with painting. How to paint things to look realistic.

This watercolor florals class was amazing! I came away with a beautiful set of cookies, and more importantly, with the confidence that I can do this for my customers, and make them incredibly happy!

Emily went above and beyond with the examples she provided during class. She taught me watercolor techniques I can use with any cookie set which was amazing. I can tell Emily was a former teacher because of how she approached the content. It was fantastic!

So, what makes these classes special?

Cookie classes are great, but do you ever sign up, take the class, but then are left feeling like what you learned is kind of a one time thing? You know what I mean? You learn some super cool techniques, but they’re not actually super practical…they either take way too long or just won’t really fit with the majority of sets you do? Classes like that are super fun, but they don’t always help you truly refine your craft. 

 

This live classes are designed specifically to teach you the fundamentals that you will be able to use in every aspect of your cookie decorating. They will help you take your skills to the next level in every aspect of your cookie decorating!

No problem! All classes will be recorded and emailed out to everyone who signed up!

DO I NEED TO PREPARE ANYTHING FOR CLASS?

You can if you want! Your workbook will have a full list of brushes you can purchase and cookies you can prep for class so that you can paint along with me. If you don't have time, just come, listen, watch and learn! Plus you'll be plenty busy filling out your workbook as we go!

ARE THE CLASSES A PACKAGE DEAL?

Nope! You can purchase a seat for each class separately! 

WHY IS THERE A LIMITED NUMBER OF SEATS?

Each class will be limited to 60 seats because I want to make sure that the group is small enough that I can answer questions and get

to know you!

CAN I PURCHASE THE RECORDINGS BY THEMSELVES?

The recordings will not be for sale. In order to have access to the recordings, you must have a ticket to the class.

WILL YOU RUN THESES CLASSES AGAIN?

If there is enough interest, I will do them again. For now that is TBD.
