Great Harmony Bake Off

Have you always wanted to bake but things go wrong?, then no is the chance to try again. Throw away the packet mixes and wave goodbye to the flat rubbery cakes.

In pairs you will  learn the basics of the creaming, whisking, and rubbing in methods.

After a demonstration of a whisked sponge to make a Genoese or Swiss roll and instructions of what to look for when creaming and rubbing in, you can choose your own baking favourite. From an easy Victoria sandwich, coffee and walnut cake to lemon drizzle or challenge yourself to a devils food cake.  Then you may wish to make pastry for maids of honour or Scones, Cookies or Shortbread using the rubbing in method. 

We will cook small versions of all the cakes and you will make two or three items per couple.  At the end of the course you will divide the goodies so you have a selection of items to take home and share with the family.

All ingredients will be provided together with an apron to use on the day and a recipe pack.  Refreshments are available at all times.

Please bring containers to take home your goodies

 

£50 per person    - children under 16years must be accompanied by an adult
