About the Event

Join the brilliant Ian Cumming (GBBO, series 6) live from Cambridge who will teach you to create his lemon and meringue creation, the Citrus Slice.Ian's recipe is a rich buttery layer of shortbread, baked with with a citron filling, before being topped with perfectly piped meringue. If you're looking to practice your piping, then this is a great chance to focus on your skills. We’ll start off the class with an introductory welcome and some background from Ian's time on TV, before we ask you to put on your aprons and bake along as you watch Ian demonstrate all the skills required to make this lovely treat.
