About the Event

Join the brilliant Howard Middleton (Great British Bake Off Contestant from series 4) live from Sheffield, UK, who will teach you the skills you need to master his Regal Lemon Mini Trifles!

This class takes place on Saturday 3rd August at the following times:

9am PT / 11am CT / 12pm ET / 5pm UK BST

Please allow up to 2 1/2 hours for this class.

Inspired by the late Queen's Platinum Jubilee, Howard will show you how to make mini lemon curd filled Swiss rolls, layered with soused satsumas, crème patisserie, veggie-friendly orange jelly, and topped with peaks of whipped cream, all finished off with an amaretti crown - it's the perfect royal treat!

Bake With A Legend Online Classes is 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 along the way as you perfect all the skills required to make Howard's delicious take on the trifle. Howard will also be on hand to answer your questions, be those about baking or his experiences of being involved in 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.

Once booked in, all guests will be emailed a full recipe and the zoom link required to join us for the class. Just in case you don’t spot it please check junk mail!
