Join the brilliant Dan Beasley Harling (GBBO, series 9) live from London who will teach you the skills to make his delicious battenberg cake. Battenberg cake is exemplarily British and the first cake was baked in 1884 to celebrate Prince Louis of Battenberg marrying Princess Victoria, Queen Victoria’s granddaughter and Prince Philip’s grandmother.” You’ll learn to make a delicious light sponge cake held together with jam. The cake is covered in marzipan and, when cut in cross section, displays a distinctive two-by-two check pattern alternately coloured pink and yellow.
We’ll start off the class with an introductory welcome and some background from Dan’s time on TV, before we ask you to put on your aprons & bake along as you watch Dan demonstrate all the skills required to make this lovely treat.
Our class will take around 1h 45 minutes as we bake our masterpieces, before you can tuck into the fruits of your labour all whilst hearing fantastic memories and stories from Dan.
Tickets are priced at £35 for individuals and £50 for groups of two or more that will join from the same household.
