About the Event

Join Howard Middleton (GBBO contestant from series 4) live from Sheffield who will teach you the skills you need to bake the spring-time classic, Sticky Hot Cross Buns alongside his delicious Easter biscuits.

This class takes place on Sunday 9th April at the following times:

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 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 Howard, learning many tips and tricks a long the way as you perfect all the skills required to make Howard's Easter treats: Sticky Hot Cross Buns and Easter Biscuits. 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.
