Ian's Easter Carrot Cake
Time & Location
About the Event
Join the brilliant Ian Cumming (GBBO, series 6) live from Cambridge who will guide you through baking his Easter Carrot Cake inspired by his time in the Bake Off Tent. This moist carrot sponge is generously coated with cream cheese frosting and includes a decorative marzipan bunny of your own creation.
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.
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 and tips throughout from Ian.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.
