Festive afternoon tea

Join us on this gorgeous baking class to give traditional afternoon tea a festive twist with Christmas flavours in your favourite scones and dainty bakes - perfect to share with friends and a glass of fizz! From classic scones to pretty macarons, we've got ideas for festive treats that will definitely impress.  


What to expect

Our Christmas cooking classes are not only the perfect opportunity to have some festive fun in the kitchen with friends and loved ones, but will also set you up with essential recipes and new ideas to make this Christmas the most delicious one yet.

You've got to have scones on an afternoon tea, even at Christmas. In this baking class our chefs will make sure you have all the essential skills you need to make perfect scones throughout the year, this time with gorgeous orange and cranberry additions to add a seasonal touch. 

Learning how to make macarons is another fantastic baking skill to master - they are always going to impress and once confident, you can vary the flavours to match any season or occasion. This time you'll make them with a festive flavour combination to show just how versatile they are. 

You'll head home with a bag bursting with these and another dainty bake, ready to host your own Christmas-themed afternoon tea at home - all you need to worry about is the tea!
