What is the Wedding Cookie College?

With deep regret but an understanding of the current national and world climate, we must cancel the May 3 Wedding Cookie College. We’ve been working on the details and know you will understand. According to CDC guidelines, no events with than 50 people are to be held in the next 8 weeks and we fall within that period. We will start the process of refunding ticket purchase prices along with the fee you paid. We know this isn’t as hard as cancelling a wedding, but we’re still sad. When we have navigated these troubling waters and get safely to shore, we will look to schedule another cookie college. Thank you for understanding.

The Wedding Cookie College is a gathering of wedding cookie bakers, many whom are members of The Wedding Cookie Table Community.

Bakers can:

  • Learn from experts
  • Purchase cookies and other products
  • Exchange recipes
  • Watch cookie-making demos
  • Visit vendor stations
  • Come to meet community members and friends
  • See several types of wedding cookies demonstrated
  • Meet various baking product vendors
  • Licensed community member bakers will have a chance to sell cookies
  • Purchase souvenir Guinness World’s Largest Wedding Cookie Table event items
