HUMBOLDT — Eleven 3-year-olds who attend the Growing Place preschool got a hands-on lesson in decorating cookies at Stacy Cakes, Etc. here Wednesday morning.
Stacy Mueller, who opened a combination bakery, sandwich shop and soda fountain in the old Garvey Drug Store building, 804 Bridge St., Saturday, had freshly rolled and cut sugar cookies laid out for the kids.
Amid the excitement of seeing enough sugar-laced goodies to have them bouncing wall to wall, the youngsters finally settled down enough to line either side of a low table holding the cookie cut-outs. They plastered candy bits and sparkles atop each before Mueller laid them out on a metal cookie sheet and plopped all into an oven.
