The British trifle is a quintessential dessert that has graced British tables for centuries! Now you can join Howard who will share his tips and tricks to make this perfect summer treat!
We’ll start off the class with an introductory welcome and some background from Howard's time on TV, before we ask you to put on our aprons & bake along as you watch Howard demonstrate all the skills required to make this lovely treat.
Our class will take around 90 minutes as we bake our masterpieces, before you can tuck into the fruits of your labour all whilst hearing fantastic memories and stories from Howard.
