Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to have any particular baking or cooking skills to attend a class?

Definitely not! Bakers of all levels are most welcome. We will ask you when you are booking what sort of baker you consider yourself to be. This is so we can make sure the class is designed for everyone, no matter what your baking ability and skill level.

Are all ingredients and equipment supplied for my BakeClass?

Yes, all ingredients and equipment are included in the price for all BakeClasses, apart from an apron.

Do I need to bring anything with me to a BakeClass?

Make sure you wear closed shoes and please bring an apron with you. Also bring a pen if you would like to make notes on your recipes.

How many people come along to each class?

Our intimate hands-on group classes will have no more than 12 people. They have been designed to introduce you to a specific baking topic in a fun and friendly atmosphere where recipes and ideas will be shared, baking sticking points and 'fears' will be overcome and loads of relevant hints and tips that you can take back to your own kitchen will be learnt. 

What will I be taking home at the end of the class?

Along with a new confidence to bake and loads of useful information and memorable hints and tips that you will be able to use in your own kitchen, you will also be taking home an invaluable recipe and information kit and a ‘goodie’ box with samples of all the recipes that are made in the class (just so you can be the most popular person in your house!) You will also take home special gifts from our wonderful partners.
