On-Site Private Decorating Party
Bee Love Cookie Co. travels! We love going on location and teaching Cookie Decorating. The minimum class size for any on-site private party is 12 guests. The maximum party size is 45 guests. With any class of 25 or more guests the class will have an instructor and an assistant as well. I can “plug in” to almost any TV, so if you have a TV on location the demonstration can be live streamed for better visibility! If the location is within the town of Lodi, CA I am able to bring the TV from The Sprinkle Room if needed. The actual set up for the decorating aspect of the class stays the same!
The cookies are baked ahead of time and icing is ready and bagged when you arrive. You will learn how to decorate 4 cookies, using techniques like; outlining, flooding, detailing, wet on wet, and depending on the set, even airbrushing! Each place setting will have cookies, icing, all the tools we will need, a favor (normally a drop cookie in a sealed bag), and a water bottle. When we are finished decorating we will package your cookies in a professional bakery box with a window, for safe travel home (If they make it that far)! The actual class lasts about 2-2.5 hours, however private parties tend tend to last longer.
You are welcome to decorate the party/location however you like, have wine, charcuterie, etc! All I ask is there is enough seating and chairs available for the size of the party, and the tables (tablecloths if needed) and chairs are set up and ready when I arrive. I normally arrive to set up about 1-2 hours ahead of time depending on class size. The cost of an On-Site cookie decorating party is $60/person.
Dough & Icing Class
This is the perfect class if you want to learn all the tips and tricks on how to bake the perfect sugar cookie and set yourself up for decorating success with royal icing. This class will consist of teaching you how to make dough from scratch, how to find and use the best ingredients, how to roll out the dough, use cookie cutters, transfer cookies to the baking sheet so you they don’t lose their shape, how to bake at the perfect temperature and how to know when they are done! With the icing we will go over ingredients, mixing in a mixer, and then mixing colors and consistencies. We will also go over how to fill icing bags and tie them. You will leave this class with recipes for dough and icing and a new skill! This is a perfect class to attend before taking a cookie decorating class! The cost of the class is $425 for up to 6 guests, it will run about 3-4 hours, and can be taught in your very own kitchen, or mine!
If you are wanting to jump into the cookie world, further your skills, or troubleshoot any techniques you're stuck on, this is the perfect class for you.
This class will be customized and tailored to exactly what you’d like to improve on or learn the most. Techniques include mixing icing, and icing consistencies, wet on wet, outlining, flooding, airbrushing, free hand lettering, lettering with a projector, using a stencil with icing or an airbrush, piping flowers, and more. I have been decorating cookies for 5 years and am completely self taught. I have so much valuable information to share not only in the actual cookie decorating itself, but in business, organization and time management, success on Instagram, as well as building your business and brand. Basically, everything I wish I knew when I was starting out! I’m happy to answer any questions you have.
The cost is $625, and will run between 4-6 hours. Includes lunch and a custom swag bag!
The class can either be held in my studio space in Downtown Lodi, or in your home kitchen.
Private Party at The Sprinkle Room
The Sprinkle Room is a brick and mortar location owned by Bee Love Cookie Co. in Downtown Lodi. This fun and vibrant location is adorned with a wall of sprinkle jars, an entire wall of sprinkle decals and a “treat yo self” sign worthy of any Instagram picture ;) It’s an amazing location for classes, including a TV screen where you are able to follow step by step from a live stream of what the instructor is doing!

Each class lasts around 2-2.5 hours.You are able to have up to 12 guests for a party at the sprinkle room, and a minimum of 10. The cost is $60/person, or $720 for a 12 person private party.
Kids Party at The Sprinkle Room
Looking for something new? Kids love combining food and art in a Cookie Decorating class, in the fun and vibrant Sprinkle Room! We have lots of options to make it the best birthday ever. We don’t have specific packages, however you are able to add on as much or as little as you’d like to customize your party.
This includes 8 children. Each child will be decorating 3 cookies each (cookies are time intensive and after a lot of trial and error, I’ve learned 3 is the perfect amount for their attention span!) as well as creating their own custom sprinkle mix from the sprinkle wall! They will be lead with step by step instruction on a large TV screen, seeing everything the instructor does. They will learn how to use the tools in front of them, about the icing used, how to outline, flood, and detail a cookie, as well as some fun tips and tricks they can try at home! Each guest also receives either a drop cookie (chocolate chip, etc.) or a custom name cookie at each place setting (in a sealed bag), as well as a water bottle and a cup of kettle corn. The cookies we decorate together go in a professional box with a window (their favorite part) and are sent home to show off to their families. The three cookies are a basic birthday set consisting of; a party hat, a balloon, and a cake. All sugar cookies are the original Bee Love Cookie Co. recipe. Decorated with pink, purple, teal, white, and yellow royal icing.
If you’d like to have cake or cupcakes, you are more than welcome, however plates/napkins/silverware must be supplied by you. I do set the gifts in another room during the class, but we always have time for the birthday kid open their gifts! The birthday child’s parent(s) are welcome to stay, but due to space, parties at The Sprinkle Room are normally “drop off” type parties. If additional parents would like to stay I have space in my second room or seating in the hallway. Each party lasts between 1.5-2 hours.
For a $30 design fee you can choose a custom theme! We’ve done mermaid, unicorn, Junie B. Jones, and more. We will work together to come up with the perfect cookie shapes and colors to customize your party.
You can add up to 12 children to the party, for $15/child. The original 8 is included in the initial $395. Any guest who is decorating cookies needs to be 5 years old or older, this includes siblings!
If you would like to add a custom decorated sugar cookie name plaque to each place setting it is an additional $3/guest. If not, each guest will receive a drop cookie favor in a sealed bag!
Birthday parties are normally on Friday/Saturday/Sunday, but depending on the date, a weekday may work as well!
