I absolutely adore Christmas and everything that comes along with it but most of all I love the festive baking and getting ahead. My demo days will be fun and relaxed but also give you ideas of what to make over the festive period. I will give you ideas for bakes that can be frozen, so helping you to get ahead with the festive feast. There will be crackers, fizz and delicious delights. This would make a great office party or pre-Christmas baking get together.
I think this will make the perfect gift for your partner, parent, friend or a wonderful treat for yourself. It works for any skill level of baker and the day will be a fun filled and relaxing.
The Day will include:
A welcome chat with coffee or tea and something baked by me on arrival served in my conservatory.
Then on to a demonstration (which will last about 2 hours) of a selection of what you'll be served for your Afternoon Tea. This will include canapes, cranberry sauce, chutney, mincemeat frangipane tarts, Christmas scones and a show stopper cake.
Finally Afternoon Tea will be served in my dining room on beautiful cake stands and pretty crockery where I will join you for a luxury Afternoon Tea with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine, soft drinks and of course Tea or coffee.
The price is £100 for the day. If you want either or both of my books they are available to buy on checkout and can be collected on the day of your class and I will sign them if you require. For those of you who already have my book I'm more than happy for you to bring it along to get it signed.
Is there an age limit to enter the event?
Everyone over 16 is very welcome. I do occasional classes for children which will be advertised when available.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
All classes take place in my kitchen in Essex which is just 2 miles from the Harlow junction 7 of the M11. I'm situated 6-7 miles form Epping Underground station and a similar distance from Harlow Mill overground. For drivers there is ample parking on site.
I supply everything but you might be wise to bring your apron.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
It is preferable but not essential, as long as you know who you are!
What is the refund policy?
Unfortunately due to the popularity of my classes no refunds or exchanges can be given for cancellations. Please carefully check the date before you decide to go ahead. In the unlikely event that I cancel a class an alternative will be given or a full refund.
