3-D Heart Box Cookie Tutorial

Description

Originally conducted by Julia as a Facebook Live for a Cake International virtual event in March 2021, this two-hour and 17-minute recorded demo shows how to create a stunning, completely edible heart-shaped cookie box, perfect for filling with more treats for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or almost any other special occasion. This project is a great intro for those just starting to dabble in 3-D cookies, though more advanced decorators will certainly find valuable lessons in it as well.

Once you’ve purchased, you’ll automatically receive a receipt with a link to a downloadable handout, including three recipes, sources, and extensive technique tips. Then, simply return to this page to view the tutorial as often and for as long as you like. The sneak peek video above will disappear and be replaced with the full-length video.

Video Production: Julia, via Facebook Live. Again, this class is a recording of a live online demo, so production value will vary throughout the video depending on internet conditions at the time. It is also unedited, complete with student interactions, Julia’s “um”s and bloopers, and even a brief false start! But, Julia’s crystal-clear teaching style shines through, and there are some great lessons in the student Q&A, so don’t skip past!
