About the Event

Join the brilliant Karen Wright (GBBO Star, series 9) live from Wakefield, UK as she guides you through her recipe for the classic Angel Slice. The Angel Slice with its three colours of Genoise sponge and pink feathered icing is a classic favourite. It was a Prue Leith technical challenge on the GBBO and for good reason. A Genoise sponge relies on technique and science to rise, it does not contain any leavening agent. In this bake we build our layers using a swiss meringue buttercream and lemon curd and raspberry jam. A real teatime treat!
