Overview: Take your cookie decorating to new heights – literally! In this 45-minute demo, part of That Takes the Cake Show’s special Cookie Track, Julia will design and decorate a dimensional mixed media cookie (or two), perfect for springtime weddings and other elegant events. Get ready to learn a wide range of techniques that lend texture and interest to cookies, including precision-control airbrushing, rubber-stamping, embossed and molded cookies, contoured and embossed royal icing transfers, royal icing shards, modeling chocolate ribbons and bows, and more.
