Does your child love to bake, or would you like to give them the benefit of a few essential life skills? If the answer is yes, then this half day Children's baking course is a must.

On this fun, hands-on cookery class for children aged 9-11, we'll teach your child the key baking skills to ensure a successful sponge or chocolate cookies, perfect for special occasions, school cake sales or just because granny and grandad are coming round for tea.

The epitome of all that is good in the world, baking is becoming ever more popular thanks to popular TV shows such as the Great British Bake Off, and now Junior Bake Off is inspiring a whole new generation of bakers.

Victoria Sponge

Firstly, after going through all the relevant health and safety issues, we'll teach your child or children how to bake a traditional Victoria sponge.

This classic cake first came to popularity way back in the 1840s, made possible by the invention of baking powder. The sweet-toothed British public embraced the gloriously patriotic recipe with aplomb.

We can help children to create their very own Victoria Sponge award winner that would make Prue Leith proud.

Chocolate Cookies

Then comes the chocolatey bit, where the kids will learn how to make some yummy chocolate cookies to satisfy even the devoutest chocaholic.

And the best bit...

We can't really think of a better way to spend the morning or afternoon, and what's better, the children will get to take away with them what they've cooked - just so you can make sure they have done a good job.
