About the Event

Join Howard Middleton (GBBO, series 4) live from Sheffield for his Stollen and Lebkuchen. These treats are perfect for gifts (or a little self-indulgence). Howard is serving up two classic German festive bakes - deliciously fruity mini stollen with a rich almondy core and pretty little spiced and iced lebkuchen.

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. Tickets are priced at £35 for individuals and £50 for groups of two or more that will join from the same household. 

Places are non-refundable and cannot be cancelled or altered after purchase. All classes are subject to a minimum number of six attendees signing up. If the minimum number is not met, we will inform those who have purchased a place no later than 24 hours before the class, and will arrange a full refund. All guests will be emailed a link to the class following their booking. Please note our classes are very much interactive and are limited to 17 participants. Howard will ensure he gives you feedback as we go whilst everyone will be encouraged to ask questions.
