A candy cane...that is a cookie?!? Yes please! Test your skills as your make cookie dough from scratch, separate the dough and dye it, and then give it a twist before baking! What fun.

Sample Class Format

Class will start with a brief introduction of the instructor and what the recipe will be, followed by an overview of what steps they will be taking to complete the recipe. The Tiny Chefs will then take a couple of minutes to wash their hands and get their aprons on! Instructor will make sure that everyone has enough time to complete each step before moving onto the next. Tiny Chefs are encouraged to ask questions during class, verbally or in the chat. (If there are more than 6 students in the class, a second instructor will join to help moderate the class and answer Tiny Chefs questions in the class.) Students will be prompted when they may have time to clean as they go. After we are done cooking everyone has a chance to taste their creation and discuss what they like or dislike about it, or to show off their creation!

Loved that you can have your questions answered throughout and the group was small.


Would like to have the list of ingredients sooner in order to plan easier.

This was a unique and fun recipe with multiple variations for decorating. The girls loved making them and giving them to family. Chef Tara was patient and great at making sure the kids were having fun and not lost.


Nothing at all. It was great!

Small class size, kids had autonomy to do hands on learning with enough guidance


Instructors seemed detached? Hard to describe, but like they were just going through the process, not that they were enjoying it. Wish the kids were able to take copies of the recipes home with them. There should be an option to accommodate for kids with food allergies (e.g., dairy/milk)

Class was creative and fun


We were under the impression this was a baking class like the previous one we did, and realized it was only decorating afterwards. Though the class was a good and fun experience for my son and he really enjoyed it, I'm not sure $50 was a price deserved for just decorating.
