Cookie Decorating Classes with Melissa Joy Cookies!

Summertime for Melissa Joy brings the opportunity to not only take cookie orders, but offer cookie decorating classes as well! I’ve got two different options at this time. One is for those who just want to have a little creative fun with a group of friends and the other is for those who’d like an introduction into the art of cookie decorating.

I am located in the La Crosse, WI area, so most classes will be conducted here with site to be determined by the number of students interested. I do have a few connections on the other side of the state, therefore additional locations could be possible!

Cookie Decorating Parties

Cookie parties are a super way to get together with your friends and have some sweet, creative fun! 

A two hour party includes decorating instruction, cookies, icing and tools needed to create a 6 to 8 pre-designed set. Cost is $50 per person, with a minimum of 5 participants. If you are hosting the party, your fee is complimentary! 

These parties will be held in your home, so living in or near the La Crosse, WI area is ideal. Participants must pay in full one week before the party date to secure a spot. Refunds will not be accepted after that time, but your spot can be filled by another person. For further inquiries and availability, email

Cookie Decorating Workshops

Cookie decorating workshops with Melissa Joy are a more in-depth introduction into creating artfully decorated cookies. This 3-4 hour class will cover how to make royal icing and its consistencies, as well as techniques including simple flooding, wet-on-wet, brush embroidery, swirl roses, working with transfers or painting on cookies. Little nuggets of wisdom will be sprinkled throughout! Each participant will also go home with a few tools to start their decorating journey.

Cost per workshop is $100. Participants must pay in full at least one week before class date to secure a spot. Cancelations will get a partial refund after that time, but spot can be transferred to another person. For further inquiries and availability, email

Any other questions about classes or ideas for what you’d like to learn are welcome!

Cookie decorating is a fabulous creative outlet for anyone who wants to give it a whirl. Whether it’s just for a night of fun with the ladies, or the start of your new, delicious hobby, I’d love to share the joy of decorating cookies with you!

  1. Are you still giving cookie decorating classes in la crosse? I am interested in finding out the dates you are having classes. Thank you Jan A.

  2. I am in awe over your beautifully-decorated cookies and would love to attend one of your cookie decorating workshops! I live in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Please let me know if you have any workshops planned in this area!

    Thank you!

  3. Are you doing any of these classes in the near future? I have been fascinated by these for years and years… Ever since I saw Eleni’s cookies in New York City, and that has to be 20 years ago at least! I don’t know how I missed out on this trend, and I certainly didn’t know that anyone in the area was making such beautiful works of art!

    Please let me know if you have any plans to start classes again. I would certainly wear my mask and bring my bottle of Purell!

    • Hi Vicki! I won’t be doing classes any time soon because of the pandemic, but when I feel more comfortable, and if I have the time, I’ll be sure to let you know! Cookie decorating is so great and I appreciate your enthusiasm. 🙂 Stay tuned!
