About the Event

Join the brilliant Jane Beedle (GBBO Finalist from series 7) live from Kent, UK who will teach you the skills you need to master her German Biscuit Recipes (which were done on Episode 5 of GBBO 2021). 

This class takes place on Saturday March 5th at the following times:

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

Please allow up to 2 hours for this class.

It was the first German week in the Bake Off tent and we were introduced to their delicious almond cookies.  If you would like to make these, with a twist, and a Christmas favourite  Schwarz-Weiss-Geback (that’s black and white biscuits to you and me) then join us for our German biscuit class.  Not only are they delicious but perfect for gifts for the festive season.  Also crack out your cookie cutters to use up the trimmings and make some marbled sandwich biscuits, as well as Spicy Almond Meringue Cookies.  Once you’ve mastered these delicious treats you can delight your friends with a box of homemade biscuits that look as though they have come from an expensive Konditorei (patisserie).

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 Jane, learning many tips and tricks a long the way as you perfect all the skills required to make Jane's delicious take on the German Biscuits. Jane will also be on hand to answer your questions, be those about baking or her 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.

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!
