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 Sachertorte, Austria's most famous and revered cake. A dark, rich chocolate cake filled with apricot jam, it actually improves with keeping a day or two and is fabulous served with freshly whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. The original recipe is a closely guarded secret but we think Karen's version comes very close.
