About the Event

Join the brilliant Andrew Smyth (GBBO, series 7) live from Derby, England on Saturday 13th March at 5pm UK for a St Patrick's themed baking class, tackling two bakes with an Irish twist. In this class Andrew will teach you to bake Treacle Wheaten Bread as well as Guiness Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.

“Wheaten” bread is an Irish/Scottish traditional loaf that is similar to soda bread, but with a richer flavour from the use of different flours. Andrew's Guinness Cupcakes are rich and moist, with a topping resembling the frothy “black stuff” you’ll get in pubs around Ireland. A deep and decadent treat, perfect for an Irish celebration!

We’ll start off the class with an introductory welcome and some background from Andrew's time on TV, before we ask you to put on your aprons and bake along as you watch Andrew demonstrate all the skills required to make this lovely treat. Our class will take around 1h 45 minutes as we bake our masterpieces, before you can tuck into the fruits of your labour all whilst hearing fantastic memories and stories from Andrew.
