Classes and Demos

Whether you want to learn to bake, improve your baking or master a specific skill or technique, I can help you with either a demo or a hands-on baking course.

Hands-on baking courses in Ascot – I run various classes from my kitchen in Ascot for up to 4 people, although it may be possible to accommodate more depending on the subject.  Some are listed below and if there’s something you want to learn I can tailor a class to your requirements: just get in touch!

Chocolate Celebration Cakes

Learn how to make a chocolate celebration cake that can be adapted to many different styles of decoration with the perfect chocolate sponge and chocolate buttercream.  Learn how to bake, split, level and decorate your sponge and how it can be adapted to various decorative themes. Go home with a delicious cake and the confidence to make your own celebration cake at home.

The Perfect Victoria Sponge

Wondering why sometimes your cake is perfect, and sometimes it’s not? I will teach you how to ensure you get the perfect Victoria sponge every time you bake. And while we are waiting for the cake to cool we will make some homemade jam and buttercream to fill it with. You’ll wish you did it sooner!

Drip Cake Decorating

Do you want to make a statement with a buttercream covered, ganache topped drip cake? Either bring your own 8” vanilla sponge or I can supply a 6” and you will learn how to level and decorate your cake with the perfect buttercream, how to make your ganache and achieve the elegant drip. And the all-important decoration: minimal or maximum chocolate?!

Gluten-Free Baking

Struggling to understand how to adapt your baking to gluten-free versions? There are so many ways to bake with gluten-free alternatives and I can take you through them. Learn about the various options for gluten-free baking and make a delicious polenta and almond cake to take home.
