We always envy our friends who can whip a plate of delicious AND gorgeous cookies that somehow capture the essence of whatever party or event they are hosting. For Ashley's baby shower, Vicki managed to create darling intricately decorated baby carriage cookies and always has a plate of fabulous football field cookies at the entrance to her legendary college football viewing parties.
I always chocked up Vicki's baking and decorating talents to the “things her mother taught her” category. Much to my surprise, Vicki recently revealed her secret to me. She sprung the $40.00 to take Anne Yorks online Celebrate with Cookies – 19 Favorite Cookie Decorating Designs Craftsy class! Yep! I guess we now have no excuse to serve plain rather than decorated cookies! And it turns out Vicki not only watched Anne Yorks' class, she has been enrolling in Craftsy cooking decorating classes for years! According to Vicki, each class helps her practice and perfect her technique.

About Anne Yorks
I left the “real world” in 2007 to be a stay–at–home mom. As a self–taught baker, I spent years decorating cookies and tweaking my recipes for loved ones' weddings, parties, baby showers and beyond. All that practice finally paid off when I opened the successful Flour Box Bakery in my home town of Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. Now, I'm happy to share my tried–and–true tips and cookie techniques with you, right here on Craftsy.
