Thanksgiving Cookie Workshop 14 #Grateful

When I think about spreading the love, cookie workshops always come to mind. I know how much I enjoy learning new things (as Martha says “when you’re through changing you’re through”), so I love to watch as people and kiddos discover the fun and creativity of cookie icing. Plus where else in the world of “art & crafts” do you get to eat your works of art?

We had so much fun at our Thanksgiving cookie workshop at Porta in Asbury Park, NJ. Here’s a few adorable snaps of the workshop and the amazing expert icers who joined us…
