About the Event

Join the brilliant Karen Wright (GBBO Star, series 9) live from Wakefield, UK as she guides you through the signature challenge from Week 6 of GBBO 2022, her delicious apple cake.

It's all treats and no tricks with this Halloween recipe, where you'll make Karen's lightly spiced apple sponge, topped with caramelised apple pieces, mini toffee apples, Italian meringue ghosts and some marshmallow spider webs.

This class takes place on Sunday 23rd October at the following times:

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

Please allow up to 2 hours for this class.

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, making sure 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 Karen, learning many tips and tricks along the way as you perfect all the skills required to make the signature dish from Halloween week. Karen 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.
