    Elvira will take you through the motions, making sure you come away with some beautiful, tasty, gluten-free goodies. Her recipes truly are unique, so you'll never want to sponge off standard recipe books again! Trust us - the proof is in the pudding.

    Now you can

    • Make delicious, all-inclusive desserts for the family at home without worrying about different dietary needs;
    • Impress your gluten-free friends with your thoughtfulness;
    • Add cake decorating to your armoury of talents.

    You can get a group of friends together (up to six) and bring Elvira to you, or opt for a change of scenery and head down to Beckenham for a class at Elvira's Secret Pantry. What are you waiting for?
