About the Event

Join the brilliant Ian Cumming (GBBO contestant from series 6) live from Cambridge who will teach you the recipe for his Citrus Slice. You'll make a tangy lemon curd filling on a sweet shortbread base and topped with a fluffy Italian meringue: a classic and well-loved dessert.

This class takes place on Sunday 29th January 2023 at the following times:

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

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 Ian, learning many tips and tricks a long the way as you perfect all the skills required to make Ian's delicious Citrus Slice. Ian 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.

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.
