St. Anthony’s Hospital Foundation ‘Sprinkles’ Fun on Second Annual Holiday Cookie Class

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., (Nov. 11, 2013) – The St. Anthony’s Hospital Foundation will mix in some fun with cookies and icing during the second annual “Sprinkles!” holiday cookie decorating class on Saturday, Dec. 7. Everyone is invited to join the merriment from 2-3:30 p.m. in the Plaza Ballroom at the Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort, 501 Fifth Ave. NE.

Mark Heimann, the Vinoy’s executive chef, will once again be on hand to teach the best techniques to help your cookies look like they are ready for a magazine photo shoot. This year, participants also will take home an additional dozen cookies along with the cookies they decorate at the event.
