Christmas Cookie Decorating🎄
Taylor taught the class and sent us home with some beautiful, and DELICIOUS, cookies…well, beautiful aside from the set that my three-year-old niece so artistically decorated (see the picture on the right below). However, they were still absolutely delicious. I was astonished with the amount of talent in the room! We learned so much, and even came home with the recipe! Taylor walked us through the recipe, including best practices, common mistakes, and other tips and tricks that she’s learned as she’s perfected her practice. She then walked us through how she decorates, starting with outlining the designs, filling, and then adding details to finish everything up. Again, we learned a few tricks to make them look professional and polished. While my hand in baking isn’t always the best, I’m hoping that with the skills I learned in class, I can actually pull these off for the end of the holiday season.🤞🏼
The super cute space was hosted by our next-door-neighbors, Love Woolies. Love Woolies repurposes wool sweaters into warm, luxurious accessories, including wool mittens, wool socks, and cashmere scrunchies. I can attest that their mittens are the best in the game! Love Woolies supports local women and mothers working from home, and their message of “create joy despite the flaws'' is such a great message to stand by! We’re so grateful to them for hosting and for adding cute bow scrunchies to our swag bags.
And of course, a huge thank you to everyone who came, as well as to the members of the OLB team that helped make this event possible. It was such a fun event and we were so happy to see everyone there. We hope you had fun and learned a thing or two. We wouldn’t have been able to do this without you! If you couldn’t make it, stay tuned for next month’s activity; it'll be a good one. Wishing you all a happy holiday season filled with full hearts and full stomachs.🍪🎉💕
