If you’re looking to boost your frosting and sprinkle skills, or even just want to nibble on some sweet treats, check out these cookie decorating classes taking place in Birmingham this December.

During the class, you’ll have the chance to decorate six cookies with royal icing. You’ll even get some icing recipes to take home so you can continue the baking fun.
What’s especially cool about about the class is the chance to create a sign or customized wood cookie tray.
