Description: Take your cookie decorating skills to unimagined levels with world-renowned cookie artist Julia M. Usher in this one-day hands-on class. You’ll get a crash course in 10-plus fundamental decorating techniques while creating three (or more) magical cookies featuring mermaids and fairies – perfect for birthdays of any season or any fanciful occasion. Along the way, you’ll gain experience with Julia’s Dynamic Duos™ layered stencil sets, and receive an in-depth airbrushing lesson that covers multi-color applications on one stencil using precision-control and shading techniques.
Techniques covered: Molded cookies; rubber-stamping; fondant appliqués; airbrushing (both precision-control and shading techniques); stenciling; royal icing transfers; wafer paper flowers, fairy wings, and bows; isomalt “sea glass”; dusting with compressed petal dusts; dimensional assembly; and various piped borders and embellishments.
What you’ll take home: 3 to 4 elaborately decorated 2-D cookies, similar to those depicted, including: 1 airbrushed-stenciled and stamped mermaid design with fondant appliqués, isomalt “sea glass”, molded cookies, and other piped embellishments; and 1 airbrushed-stenciled fairy cookie with wafer paper wings, wafer paper flowers, and fondant appliqués. Designs will vary with students’ imaginations! As time permits, students can create a fourth design.
