About This Class
Ready to shake up your cookie plate this holiday season? Join us for a power class in decorating like a pro. We will pre-bake batches of our favorite sugar cookies (recipe provided) so that when you show up it’ll be all about the decorating. When you combine the blank canvas of a cookie, royal icing in any color you can imagine, and the expert guidance of pastry chef Robin Rodriguez you’ve got the recipe for some gorgeous pieces of art.
We will have cookies cut into seasonal shapes as well as simple rounds so you can practice a wide range of techniques and designs. You’ll work with Robin to make royal icing, learning her tips for consistency variations to ensure you have the right icing for your decorations. Feel free to come with ideas of your own and we will do our best to help you make them a reality.

The average duration of our current cooking classes is 2 hours, which is predominately hands-on work. You will be standing for the majority of class, cooking at your work station as your instructor demonstrates techniques and walks around providing individual feedback.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, we can not have students congregate in the building before class starts. Doors will open 5 minutes prior to class starting and we will begin promptly on time. Students will be asked to queue up outside the door of the school, safely distanced (sidewalks are clearly marked) and will be let in the school just before class begins.
Please arrive at the school with your own mask on. You will be given a new, disposable mask to wear in class to ensure what you have on hasn’t been contaminated prior to entering SFCS. We will have extras available should you need one while at school.
Wear comfortable clothes and close-toed shoes (remember, you’ll be on your feet cooking). The kitchens at SFCS are fully equipped with everything else you need, including clean aprons.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, we will not be serving food or drinks during class, We will, however, be sending you home with both ingredients and finished food items so you can enjoy them later, and practice as well.
Wear casual clothing you can easily move around in, and comfortable close-toed shoes. Long hair must be pulled back and masks, provided by SFCS, are required while in the building.
