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 Frasier Gateaux. This classic French Gateaux can be found in patisseries, boulangeries and supermarkets throughout France. A showstopping dessert it will grace any dinner party or celebration. Light Genoese sponges sandwiched with a thick Creme Diplomat and fresh strawberries and topped a glossy red strawberry jelly, it will be everyone's favourite! It needs to chill out in the fridge a little while but it is certainly worth the wait. Set with Agar powder it is suitable for vegetarians.
