Creative Confections’ seasoned pastry chef Andrea Paskert spreads dessert-designing wisdom with in-home cookie baking lessons. Andrea brings all ingredients to clients, who in turn provide an oven and a large countertop or table. Patrons start with Andrea’s premade dough, rolling it and cutting it into festive shapes, such as hearts, gingerbread men, or shape-shifters. As the doughy creations blossom in the oven, bakers blend ingredients to create an arsenal of icings, which Andrea demonstrates on premade cookies. Once the warm batches emerge from the oven, bakers apply newly gleaned techniques to decorate the treats with colorful frills or visualizations of life on Mars. Andrea recommends that students keep large containers handy to store the fresh cookies for future consumption. Participants receive recipes for the dough and the icings, allowing them to later replicate the process for birthdays, holidays, and the anniversary of the discovery of water.
