A short list is your student kit, cookies, a can of Wilton icing, paper, pen. I have my students bring a towel (we teach painting in the same classroom as our decorating so I don't want food on the tables directly), and a copy of the paid receipt for the class.
Pillsbury cookies are a good idea. It's a fun class .. I hope you enjoy it.
Be sure and let your instructor know about the lack of syllabus'. It sounds like you'd been speaking with some uninformed cashiers.
Good luck and I hope you have a great time!
I still have high hopes and I'll be sure to report back after my first class on Monday!
As for cookies, any flat cookie is fine. Some used baby cookies ( Arrowroot ) Others had homemade flat cookies, others had bought sugar cookies from a bakery. In the end we only had time to decorate one cookie in class.
Our classroom was not that large and we had 15 students plus an instructor. It was hot ! ! !
Bring a small bottle of water with you. I didn't and sure wish I had. There was no air conditioning in the workroom we used.
Also, bring a J-cloth or small damp rag in a plastic bag to help with your cleanup. If you are planning on tinting your icing with a colour, remember to bring a box of toothpicks and a small plastic cup or bowl to mix your colour and icing. I had done this but was the only one in the class who had and everyone ended up using from my box of toothpicks
A note about the tub of decorator icing we are to bring to class.
If you buy the small tub ( which I had ) it is a THICK consistency and will need to be watered down a bit before filling your icing bag. If you buy the big tub of icing, it is of a MEDIUM consistency and those people could use their icing as it was when filling their decoratoring bags.
After class, I ended up buying a large tub for future use. The class is really jammed with information you want to be prepared.
Good luck... the 2 hour class just whizzes by.
