Anneka Manning’s BakeClub workshops are, to quote my seven year old daughter, "the best”. My kids have enjoyed every second of the workshops they’ve attended. Not only do they finish the day proudly showing off a box of delicious goodies they’ve made, they’ve talked all the way home about safety in the kitchen, great wizardry with ingredients, how important it is to eat healthy food and the most telling of all, asking if they can go again next holidays. Anneka and her team are super-friendly, professional and organised. When it comes to school holiday camps, they’ve nailed it!

Join Anneka in her 'virtual' kitchen these school holidays!
If your kids love spending time in the kitchen, our series of kids online baking classes are the perfect solution to keep little ones occupied with a daily baking activity!
Delivered from Anneka Manning's home kitchen, these classes will aim to keep your little bakers engaged in a really fun activity (either with you or on their own if they're capable in the kitchen) and provide a little bit of joy (and a yummy treat!) to your day.
Aimed at Primary School-aged children, these hour-long classes will be delivered on Zoom and will focus on one recipe that uses simple ingredients you have in your pantry and minimal equipment.
How will the classes work?
During the live session, Anneka will demonstrate the chosen recipe and you and your kids will have the opportunity to bake along with her.
At the time of booking, you will receive an Ingredient and Equipment Checklist as well as the recipe so you can prepare for the class ahead of time.
Please note: these are live classes which will take place on Zoom in Australian Eastern Standard Time (UTC+10:00).
Who is this course suitable for?
These classes are aimed at Primary School-aged children and their parents or carers. Little bakers who are less confident in the kitchen will require parental supervision.
