About the Event

Join the brilliant Dan Beasley Harling (GBBO contestant from series 9) live from London who will guide you through baking the sixth of our GBBO Mystery classes from 2023's Bake Off, where we will teach you signature challenge from week 6 of this year's show - with a hint of inspiration from the technical challenge: Lemon & Thyme Chelsea Buns and Rose & Pistachio Fudge.

Enriched lemon & thyme Chelsea Buns, swirled with a fragrant and tangy lemon & thyme filling and topped with a rich cream cheese frosting. And we'll also be making a nutty and floral rose & pistachio fudge. This is set to be a wonderful class featuring herbs, fruits, flowers and nuts; the best of botanicals week.

The class is on Sunday 5th November at the following times:

9am PT / 11am CT / 12pm ET / 5pm UK GMT

We’ll start off the class with an introductory welcome and some background from Dan's time on TV, before we ask you to put on your aprons and bake along as you watch Dan demonstrate all the skills required to make your delicious recipe.

Our class will take around two hours as we bake our masterpieces, before you can tuck into the fruits of your labour all whilst hearing fantastic memories and stories from Dan, Tickets are priced at £35 for individuals and £50 for groups of two or more that will join from the same household.
