This month’s Michaels Makers challenge is all about learning something new!
I chose to attend a Cookie Decorating Basics class at my local Michael’s craft store because when it comes to fancy frosting and decorating tips I was clueless.
To sign up: Simply go online and pick a favorite class or call your local store. Super easy!
The instructor began with the basics of mixing colors to make the perfect color of frosting you desire.
This next step might seem simple to you, but I’ve never used those frosting bags and tips! Kate (the teacher) was very helpful and showed me how to screw on the tips and adjust the bag just right without making a mess!
The fun part? Practicing techniques using the decorating tips!
Kate showed me how to turn vanilla wafers into a fun, spring treat using the techniques she taught us to make flowers!
I brought them home and the family gobbled them right up! I can’t wait to use some of these techniques on cupcakes next!
I also plan on taking the other Wilton classes so I can become more advanced in my frosting techniques!
Did you know that Michaels offers free classes in their stores? You can try out a new craft skill for just the cost of supplies.
Another great way to explore your creativity is by trying out a craft kit. Michaels has everything from sewing kits to art kits and everything in between.
