At Camp Cookie, kiddos (ages 5+) decorate delicious sugar cookies. Naturally, taste testing is included!
Older campers (ages 14+) will appreciate cookie decorating classes using royal icing. It’s as artistic as it is scrumptious. Learn tips and tricks for designing small, edible works of art!
The cake enthusiast will want to attend a basic cake decorating event. You’ll learn how to properly stack a cake, ice it, pipe it, and even write on it. Ages 12+ welcome.
Younger campers can get in on the cake creating with cupcake classes (ages 3+). Learn how to frost the perfect cupcake and explore creative ideas for topping it with sprinkles, candy, and other goodies.
