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 tent-inspired Carrot Cake. 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.
