A new type of foodie class is coming to Northern Michigan this month! Bellaire baker, Ruthie Dexter, is a pro at making cookies in Northern Michigan. Her recipes have been featured in Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine. And she’s known for her beautiful baked goods taking the spotlight at corporate events and weddings. But this January, she’s sharing her 26 years of decorating expertise with those willing to learn.

Even if you’ve never held a decorating bag in your hands, Ruthann guarantees she’ll walk you through every step of the way in her “Beginning Cookie Decorating” course (details below).

Reservations can be made by calling 231-350-7202 for the inaugural classes held at Ruthann’s Gourmet Bakery certified commercial kitchen in Bellaire.

Ruthann also takes her talents on the road for private team building events, and is planning future cake and candy classes that she’ll share details about on Facebook.

Here’s Ruthann showing MyNorth Media how to decorate cookies for the holidays. It’s a small glimpse of what you can expect in her hands-on cookie class.

Cookie Decorating I – Beginning Cookie Decorating: January 12, 14, 16, 23

In this fun-filled highly educational class, you will learn the fundamentals of cookie decorating. You will be taught how to make the frosting to outline your cookie and how to get the right consistency to “fill” or “flood” the cookie. The wet on wet decorating technique will be focused on in this session. Decorator bags and tips will be used in this class along with squeeze bottles, so it is a great beginner class if you have never held a decorating bag. Everything will be provided in this class and each student will decorate and take home 6 cookies.
Minimum 4 students. Maximum 8 students. $39 per class.
