The AWE Teen Arts Council is a group of teens aged 14-17 from across Windsor-Essex who have come together to create programs for teens, by teens. Being involved with The AWE Teen Arts Council, our youth will connect with other artists and art enthusiasts, plan and attend creative workshops and events, and get involved with volunteer opportunities at AWE and beyond.
Leah Hansen started decorating sugar cookies for her family and friends back in 2020, just after Covid hit, and just after she had her first child. Because with a newborn, apparently, she wasn’t busy enough! Leah has always loved baking and the art of decorated cookies was always something that she wanted to try. She dove headfirst into it, and fell in love instantly. From there, TLC Bakery was created. Leah loves being able to bring people’s ideas to life, in the form of edible art! There are endless possibilities when it comes to decorating and new techniques to try. Leah is so excited to share what she has learned with everyone through cookie classes and hopes you will have just as much fun as she does when decorating!
