About the Event
Join the brilliant Karen Wright (GBBO Star, series 9) live from Wakefield, UK as she guides you through her Chocolate Shard Sharing Cake, based on her very own romantic bake judged by Paul and Prue in the tent. This is the perfect bake to get you in the Valentine's Day Spirit, whether you're planning on sharing it or not!
In this class Karen will teach you the skills to bake a light Jaconde sponge, temper chocolate for the shard decorations, make a rich ganache, a coulis and an old English Syllabub cream.Tried and tested by Karen's family, this can transform any meal into a special occasion any time of the year!
