Spring is in the air! Ok, well… it may not feel like spring outside but visually it’s all around us. Trees are bursting into fresh green bud, daffodils are showing their sunny faces and, if you live in the country, the bleeting of lambs can be heard! I am ready for spring, it’s been a long grey old winter and some colour and light is extremely welcome.
The colours of spring
Lindy loves colour, bright bold colours and this spring cookie workshop is no ‘colour’ exception! Pinks, purples, greens, yellows and super whites evoke warmth and brightness. Our cookie workshops are hugely popular, they suit the beginner sugarcrafter and the experienced one who wants to experiment. They give you the opportunity to try different styles and decorating techniques. To make lots of beautiful cookies. Let Lindy show you how…
Getting to grips with the basics
On this course, we start with the basics looking at sugarpaste and how to handle it. Rolling, cutting and covering. Lindy provides all the cookies for our cookie courses. This ensures that our cutters fit the cookie so that we can move through each stage of decoration at a good pace. Lindy talks you through baking cookies at home and how to get the best out of her recipes. She guides you every step of the way and she is keen for you to do as much as you can on the day. Today we created bunnies, lambs, butterflies, chicks and flowers. A lovely spring collection. The students experimented with using cutters, shaping with dresden tools, piping work and creating various shapes with a sugar shaper.
As you can see, our students did a great job! Today we were also joined by Sally, who is usually our expert assistant and baker of the now famous Lemon Drizzle Cake!! I think you’ll agree that her spring flower below is quite simply beautiful!
Join us. We’ve got some super cookie classes in our summer workshop collection.
Hope to see you there!
