About the Event
Join Howard Middleton (GBBO, series 4) live from his kitchen in Sheffield as he shows you how to create some of the cutest cheesecakes on the street. You'll bake crunchy, moreish ginger biscuits to crush and top with creamy spiced cheesecake and serve with a delicious blackberry coulis. Lined up against their gingerbread houses, these are desserts with more than kerb appeal!
This class will be on Saturday 4th December at 8pm UK. 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 2 hours as we bake our masterpieces, before you can tuck into the fruits of your labour all whilst hearing fantastic memories and stories from Howard.
