Cookie Decorating has a learning curve. Just like any new sport or activity, nothing is easy at first and it takes a few tries to get good. Cookie decorating takes practice and your skills will improve with time. The important thing is to be patient, not get discouraged and have fun. You will see how your skills progress the more you do it. One more thing, no matter the result, your cookies will taste yummy. I guarantee you will find an uptick in your popularity and an abundance of cookie taste-testers!
