cake making class

In our cake making class you will explore different methods of making cakes and learn the all-important rules for successful cake baking. You will acquire a lovely and varied cake repertoire, including butter cakes, oil based cakes and quick cakes plus preparing and adding the toppings to your freshly baked cakes.

You will be welcomed with an aperitif and a substantial snack before rolling up your sleeves to start baking.  Some cakes will be demonstrated and others will be hands-on. It’s a short class so a few of the more straightforward cakes are pre-made so that you can taste them and see the appearance and texture. At the end of the class you will enjoy a cake feast and take home what you have made, so be sure to bring along a container to the lesson.

Please bring your own recycled bag to take your cakes home in. We no longer provide plastic bags for single use (not even our recycled plastic ones).
