About the Event

Join Howard Middleton (GBBO contestant from series 4) live from Sheffield who will teach you the skills you need to bake his delicious After Dinner Chocolate Petit Fours, as week 3 of our 10-week Series 4 Bake Along.

This class takes place on Sunday 19th March 2023 at the following times:

10am PT / 12pm CT / 1pm ET / 5pm UK GMT

**Please note the smaller than usual gap between US and UK timezones due to daylight savings hours**

Howard goes back to the 1960s for his retro take on petits fours inspired by classic British after dinner chocolates. Try your hand at some chocolate tempering to create delicious treats with the perfect snap!

This class is part of our Series 4 Bake Along, where we revisit Bake Off's UK Series 4 and try our hand at one bake from each week in the tent. We'll cover signatures, technicals and even show-stoppers. For significant savings and to sign up to all 10 weeks, click here.

Please allow up to 2 hours for this class.

Bake With A Legend Online Classes are an interactive experience, where we limit group sizes to around 25 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 Howard, learning many tips and tricks a long the way as you perfect all the skills required to make Howard's chocolate petit four duo. Howard 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.

Tickets are priced at £35 for individuals and £50 for groups of two or more that will join from the same screen. Please note we can accept requests to move classes with two or more weeks notice prior to the class – any requests to do so, will incur a £5 administrative charge.
