I had such a lovely day and it ended up being one to one tuition so the course went at a pace I was happy with. As a keen baker already I felt I needed to expand my knowledge and do a Christmas baking course to try out things I had never tried before. I learnt a lot about making gingerbread, pastry and my own marzipan for the most gorgeous tasting Stollen. The second batch I made at home for boxing day went down a treat with my family. It was lovely to meet Sarah and her Mum who are such friendly people and made the whole day relaxed and comfortable for me and were very happy to answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend the Delightful Tea Bake School to anyone who is looking to do a baking course. I would also definitely return. Thanks for having me for the day! :)
