Our classes are usually held once a month on the weekends, Right now, all of our classes are located in Northern Virginia – specifically in McLean, VA.

Right now, our classes are located in Northern Virginia at the NVS McLean Design Center located at 6712 Old McLean Village Dr Unit A, McLean, VA 22101.

Our classes are an hour and a half and we start right on time so we can squeeze in all the cookies and instruction! We ask that you show up on time, but if you’re running late – no sweat. We’ll get you caught up. We do not offer refunds or future class credit after the class starts, so please still join us even if you’re late!

Dress comfortably! Also, if you think it might get a little messy- bring your own apron! Due to COVID-19, if you’d like to bring a mask, feel free to! However, it’s not required.

Absolutely! We love having people in our classes who love cookies! Want to go with friends? Awesome – you can reserve up to 6 tickets during checkout (which would buy out the entire class!).

We do not. Our classes are first come and first serve since they fill up fairly quickly!

Well then, these classes are perfect for you! We are geared towards the first-timers and beginning cookiers or people who have taken a class but haven’t really gotten into it and would like a bit more practice.

Each class seats 10 – so come alone, bring a friend, or bring 9 friends and have a “private” class – we’d love to have you!

Definitely reach out to us! If we have enough interest for a class, we will create a second class on the same day! You can email us to either be added to the wait list or inquire about the class at

Of course! Just let us know by emailing the name and contact information of the person you’d like to transfer your ticket to to

We love when we have repeat students! Sign up for as many classes as you’d like! Note – classes held on the same day are the same class, so try signing up for different days.

Life happens! Let us know 7 days in advance and we can refund your money. Need to cancel within 7 days of the class? We can offer you a credit to a future class!

If you need to cancel before the class’s start time, we can offer you a future class credit. After your class starts, we can no longer offer refunds or class credits. If you’re running late, still come!

Just sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page and we will keep you in the cookie loop! Or follow us on Facebook (if we have last minute cancelations, we post there!).

We ask that ages start from 8+ and that kids are accompanied by an adult. We are working on decorating classes geared towards 7 and under though! Stay tuned.

We have partnered with an awesome company that makes 3D printed cookie cutters for our classes and you can absolutely buy the same set we use in class! Sweet Pink Olive provides all our cookie cutters and has a special discount for Sugar Cookie Class students to save on their next orders.

We don’t sell cookies, but we can make a cookie kit for you to take home and decorate. Just contact us for pricing!

Sometimes we have class participants who would like to take kits home to people in the family. You can purchase a cookie kit by adding it to your Eventbrite order during checkout!

Although not all of our items directly contain eggs, dairy, or nuts, we do work with those ingredients on a daily basis, and many of our ingredients are processed in a kitchen that also processes these ingredients.

Other than a face mask – nope! We provide everything you need to decorate your cookies. If you may be a messy cookier, you can bring your own apron!

These classes are for the beginning cookier and those who just want to have fun. We make and bake everything before class starts so all you gotta do is focus on decorating!

Our classes are an hour and a half and packed full of fun, cookies and instruction so we ask you to be on time so you won’t miss out! We ask that you show up on time, but if you’re running late – no sweat. We’ll get you caught up. We do not offer refunds or future class credit after the class starts, so please still join us even if you’re late!

Each person will have their own supplies to use during class! No need to share or cross contaminate. We’ll also provide to-go boxes to take your creations home to dry.

Of course you can! We provide a box for you to take them home in! You can eat them the minute to get to your car, or you can let them dry for 24 hours to harden (recommended).

You sure do! Take our perfected recipes and decorate at home! Sugar cookie recipes are actually pretty hard to come by – often costing money. But our recipes are included in your class price! Woohoo!

If we have your email on file (we’ll have the email of the person who registered you from Eventbrite), we will send you the recipes and the link to buy your very own cookie cutters we used in the class!

It can take anywhere from 24 to 48 hours for the cookies to dry completely. Until then, they will need to be kept in the box or on a clean, flat surface to dry (or, just eat em!).

We have partnered with Sweet Pink Olive for all our class cookie cutters. You can order the exact set from class from their shop and get it sent right to you! We will send you the link to order before and after each class with a special discount for being apart of Sugar Cookie Classes.
