What you'll do

Baking is a science and an art. When the two come together, they're nothing short of magic.

In any baking recipe, every ingredient has a purpose. In a cake, flour gives the structure, eggs bind the ingredients, the leaveners make it rise and the fats make it less chewy and moist.

You will learn why we sometimes use a small amount of citric acid, buttermilk, yogurt, soaks and more in bakes. (There's a method to the magic.) Discover why every ingredient needs to follow a certain proportion. Just how a system can only function if all its parts do their job - the same principle applies to baking.

The old adage 'practice makes perfect' rings true. Most people follow a recipe when baking. As they get familiar with it, they tweak it to get better results. But to figure out what to tweak, you need to understand the science of baking first! Good thing your hosts have you covered.

Lunch will be included in your adventurous day of baking explorations, just to make it all the sweeter.

Please note: Over 12’s are welcome with a full paying adult. You must buy two tickets.
