If you’re looking for a hands-on activity for your family this year, why not give baking a go? On Mothering Sunday, The Community Kitchen is hosting a three-hour baking class from 10am until 1pm for those looking to create their very own afternoon tea selection. In this workshop, you will work together as a family to bake a lemon or vanilla cupcake batter and make coloured buttercream icing. You’ll then create delicate pastry fruit tarts with custard filling. No matter what your experience, pastry chef Charlotte will be there to support you. Sit down to enjoy your creations alongside a savoury scone and dips made by Charlotte (with a recipe for you to take home). Tickets for this event are £34.99 per adult, and £9.99 per child (up to two children per adult, for those aged 7+). There are limited tickets available at a concession rate.
