About the Event

Join the brilliant Karen Wright (GBBO contestant from series 9) live from Wakefield, UK who will guide you through baking a full British Cream Tea: Devonshire Splits & Scones.

The class is on Saturday 4th May at the following times:

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

Beautifully soft enriched dough buns filled with a homemade strawberry jam and whipped cream filling, and for the perfect cream tea experience, we'll be baking some classic British scones as well. And as if that wasn't enough, we'll be whipping up a cream cheese and tangy chutney filling too, so you can have your fill of both sweet and savoury in one delicious dish. 

We’ll start off the class with an introductory welcome and some background from Karen's time on TV, before we ask you to put on your aprons and bake along as you watch Karen demonstrate all the skills required to make your delicious recipe.

Our class will take around two and half hours as we bake our masterpieces, before you can tuck into the fruits of your labour all whilst hearing fantastic memories and stories from Karen, 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. All guests will be emailed a link to the class following their booking.
