Description: In this two-day hands-on cookie decorating course, Julia will guide students step by step through the decorating and assembly of two of her most popular 3-D projects: a fancy sugar bowl and a holiday ornament, which can be tailored to any season. On Day One, Julia will demonstrate how the more unusual contoured, embossed, and molded cookie pieces are shaped and baked. Students will shape a few smaller pieces to gain experience with these methods, but will spend most of the first day icing already-baked pieces and making embellishments (mini roses and royal icing transfers) in preparation for more detailed decorating work and assembly on Day Two.
Techniques covered: Embossed cookies, contoured cookies, molded cookies, outlining and flooding, dipping, spraying/airbrushing, sponging, royal icing roses, royal icing transfers, stenciling with edible paper, line and dot work on contoured surfaces, modeling chocolate ribbons, and 3-D stacked and sandwiched assembly.
What you’ll take home: 2 elaborately decorated 3-D cookies including: 1 ornament (the iced and stenciled version) and 1 fancy sugar bowl. Designs will closely follow those depicted.
Prerequisites: 2-D cookie decorating experience is highly recommended; no 3-D decorating experience is necessary.
