Sweet As a Sugar Cookie

Few things in life are better than freshly baked cookies, but cookies baked and decorated at home with friends are the icing on the treat!

Delicately decorated sugar cookies have been blasted on social media platforms for a few months now, and it’s time to try to become a master baker. Gather your friends and family to bake, decorate, and sip at your home.

Pre-bake the cookies and set up a decorating station with icing, sprinkles, chocolate chips and any other toppings of your choice. Once friends arrive, the fun can begin! Pop open a bottle of KORBEL California Champagne and plan how you want to decorate. Each cookie can be a different theme or make them come together to tell a story.

Once the cookies have been decorated, post them to your Instagram Stories and have followers vote on which one they think is the sweetest in town! You’re guaranteed to become the new go-to for any custom treats!
