What will I be doing in the class?
Besides having the most fun ever? We will be going over some cookie decorating tips & techniques and you will be decorating your very own set of cookies that you will take home with you that day.
Can I purchase an additional take-home kit?
Yes! Many cookie lovers purchase additional class kits to take home and re-do the classes. You can purchase an add-on kit during check-out. Your kit will be available at the end of your class - so don't forget it!
Do I need to know how to bake?
Nope! No baking experience required. We will have the cookies pre-made for you along with the icing already mixed and colored. Have a little decorating experience under your belt… er… apron? You’re welcome too! we can help with questions on icing mixing and dough spread!
What will we learn in class?
You’ll learn what goes into preparing royal icing, the value of different icing consistencies – we’ll touch on tips and tricks to make your cookies look even better than they taste (and they taste good)! You’ll also learn different decorating techniques depending on the class theme such as marbling, outlining, wet-on-wet, brush embroidery, and painting. Or hey – go off script and make your own designs – it’s your class!
What do I need to bring?
Nothing but a smile! Everything will be provided for you including my (rather tasty) sugar cookies. All you need to do is join us and have fun! Messy decorator? You can bring your own apron or just wear easy-to-wash clothing. There is a PowerPoint for reference, so if you wear glasses, we'd encourage you to bring them as well. Oh – and bring your phone – we love photos!
What age is best for cookie classes?
This class is designed for those age 12 and up; kiddos 12-15 will need a responsible 16+ buddy to accompany them. If your child is too young to attend the in-person class, purchase an additional take-home kit! You’ll receive a step-by-step guide with your kit so you can guide your kids (or others) in the comfort of your own home.
Can just my child take the class?
This class is open to those ages 12 and up. Those aged 12-15 must be accompanied by a responsible 16+ cookie buddy. For this class, the buddy can buy a ticket and join in the decorating, or can step over to the main dining room at Bell Tower and enjoy their offerings! Due to space restrictions, we do not have room for buddies to stand by and watch the class. Anyone planning to decorate will need their own ticket for the class – but we promise you this - it's super fun for all involved!
What will I bring home?
By the end of the class, you will have created a set of gorgeous cookies ready to dry for 24 - 48 hours in their own box. We’ll provide you an Amazon link with a list of the tools we used in class so that you can recreate these cookies at home. And of course, you’ll have new skills, memories, and fun!
Can I sign up as an individual or as a group?
You can sign up either as an individual, with a friend, or with a whole group. The more the merrier! We are limited to a total of 20 seats per class, so definitely sign up ASAP!
Where are the classes located?
This class will be held at Bell Tower Brewing in Kent, OH - that address is 310 Park Ave, Kent, OH 44240. There is a parking lot, as well as street parking on Park Ave.

Take-Home DIY Cookie Kits
Order a Take-Home DIY Cookie Kit and take the class home with you to teach a child or friend! These class kits come with everything you'll use in class so you can follow our step-by-step instructions from home! Take-Home DIY Kits are created before your class, and you'll pick them up and take them with you after class.
How long can a kit last? Depending on how you store your icing, your kits can last for a week or longer. Freezing cookies keep them fresh for a long time, but we recommend using your kit as soon as possible - ideally in the first week after you've taken it home. Cookies are heat sealed for freshness – but again, use it in under a week to make sure it tastes the best.
Allergens: Heads up – these cookies include the following allergens: DAIRY, EGGS, WHEAT
Please note – these cookies are home-produced in a kitchen that also bakes with common, known allergens. Please consider your allergies before registering.
Class Cancelation Policy: Classes may be canceled at the discretion of us, the event host. This rarely happens – but in that extremely rare event that it does, you’ll receive a 100% refund.
Classes with attendance below five attendees may be canceled. Don’t be sad! You can either get a class credit for a future class (along with our apologies), or a full refund! We’ll let you know if your class has low attendance five days before the event is canceled so that you can bring a friend (hint hint) or find other plans for that day.
Weather Policy: Sometimes Jack Frost doesn’t play well with cookie class schedules, and Mother Nature seems to be takin’ notes. In the event of inclement weather, we’ll contact you with options – these may differ depending on the weather event, but rest assured – we’ll figure something out!
Questions? We have answers (or we’ll make up some really fun stories at least)! Reach out or check out some of our work on the following social media profiles (and hey – give us a like or follow – we’d love your support!). If you need to reach out directly, below is our email as well.
