This class takes place on Saturday 18th April at the following times:

During the class Dan will guide you through making the delicious chocolate macaron base, piping perfectly into egg shapes, plus whipping up your very own fondant creme and ganache.
Bake With A Legend Online Classes are an interactive experience, where we limit group sizes to around 20 to ensure an intimate online setting. Not only do you have your celebrity baker teaching you, but you also have one of our brilliant Bake With A Legend hosts who will ensure the smooth running of your experience ensuring everyone is enjoying themselves.
If you need any help at any point during the class, you’ll be encouraged to raise your hand and your baker will be virtually joining you in your own kitchen in no time to assist you!
You’ll bake along in tandem with Dan, learning many tips and tricks a long the way as you perfect all the skills required to make Dan's Easter Creme Egg Macarons. Dan will also be on hand to answer your questions, be those about baking or his experiences of being involved on such an iconic television show.
