This class meets online on Zoom starting at 10am on Monday, July 20. Your class confirmation email will contain the Zoom class link.
Learn to make frosting that is used in a piping bag to decorate cakes and other treats. Kids will start their own collections of basic supplies and practice with different tips. Then they will decorate their own cupcakes to share.
This class is for kids ages 8-12 years old.
A day prior to the class please bake your own cupcakes. Use any recipe you would like. Have fun!!! (You can also buy some)
Please click on this link for your frosting recipe. Don’t try to use store-bought frosting. It is too thick to squeeze through the pastry bag. This recipe is ideal for learning.
You will need a spatula, a standing mixer, and measuring spoons and cups.
We will make the frosting together online.
I suggest getting a beginner set of piping bags and tips, a coupler set, and some gel icing colors (not liquid). Wilton is the most reliable source for these supplies, and they will last a long time if cleaned and stored properly.

This practice guide is highly recommended. You will use it in the class, but also going forward as a refresher, and to learn lots of new things to do with your tips!
ONLINE WITH ZOOM
You will need to be sure the Zoom app is installed on your device. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing a secure link to join the class.
You will be able to login 15 minutes before the class start time. We recommend logging in before the class starts to make sure you are settled in and ready to go when the class is set to begin.
If you are new to Zoom, please note that we will not be able to help with the app. It is strongly recommended that you navigate Zoom on your own before the class starts to get to know the mute and video settings. Try it out by talking with a friend or family member who has the Zoom app. The Cultural Center uses Zoom to conduct online classes, and I understand that the Zoom meeting will be recorded. By participating in the class, I consent to be recorded and place no restrictions on distribution of the recording.
