About the Event

Join the brilliant Karen Wright (GBBO Star, series 9) live from Wakefield, UK for her Cranachan Style Fromboisier with Hob Knobs! Cranachan is a Scottish dessert often served at Hogmanay (New Year's Eve). It is a wonderful mixture of whipped cream with whisky, honey, raspberries and oats. For this beautiful dessert we take those ingredients and make something very like a French Framboisier. We also make a few Hobnobs and decorate with piped chocolate. Fantastic for any celebration!

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 & bake along as you watch Karen demonstrate all the skills required to make Karen's delicious treat.

Our class will take around 2hours 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 classes are subject to a minimum number of six attendees signing up.
