Gardner Village Blog Cookie College is Back in Session
Sunday Jan 1 2017

Calling all wannabe cookie connoisseurs, the school bell is ringing at Naborhood Bakery. Another year of Cookie College is underway.

But first, a few orders of business to attend to.

Hi, my name is…

“May I have your order?” Cookie College tuition includes the choice of any of the bakery’s kids’ meals.

Now, time to roll out the supplies.

Let the hands-on learning begin!

Phew! This rolling business is hard work. Good thing there are plenty of TAs on hand to help out when needed.

Cut. It. Out.

Hey! No eating the course materials.

Once the cookies are cut, it’s in the oven they go.

The largest oven I’ve ever seen.

Time for a lunch break.

As meal time comes to a close, the midterm results are in: All As, Bs, and Cs—as in Adorable, Beautifully Browned Cookies!

With the second semester of Cookie College comes more supplies to learn about.

Watch out, big brothers, classmates have been known to dip into their siblings’ stashes.

Time for a lesson in the science of frosting…

…and sprinkling…

…and decorating!

Maggie likes to call this one Candy Land. Gee, I wonder why.

Cookie College students are welcome to get help from their Resident Advisors. (Thanks, Mom!)

Cookie College is not without its tests. Taste tests, that is.

After an intense session, the results are in. All students graduate with flying colors!

Time to celebrate with another taste!

Mmmm… graduation has never been so sweet!

Cookie College also includes a campus tour (i.e. a tour of the Naborhood Bakery at Gardner Village), including cool demonstrations and a look at the extra large equipment involved in making hundreds of sweet treats on any given day. Click here for a look at this tour.

Congratulations, graduates! Those are smiles well earned. Now, let’s eat! More!
