    What you'll learn

    Saturday 10th December = CHRISTMAS EDITION

    Learn how to bake like Mary and Paul whilst making cakes and other delicious bakes at The Avenue in London. This class is for anyone that loves baking, whether a complete novice or seasoned pro.

    In this class

    Baking fantastic things for your friends and family should not be daunting, and after this class it won't be!

    We will teach you:

    • How to be confident in the kitchen with your bakes
    • How to prepare new recipes and what to look out for
    • How to plate like the pros

    More importantly, you will learn and practice loads of fantastic bakes, including: carrot cake (with some amazing icing!), red velvet cupcakes, shortbread, some of the best chocolate brownies you will every try (oh yes - we kid you not!) and dark chocolate pecan tart.

    It does not get much better than that. And there is no need for you to prepare, or bring anything (other than yourself). Oh, tea and cakes are of course also provided :)

    Now you can

    • Pretend to be Mary or Paul in your own kitchen;
    • Be the queen of carrot cakes;
    • Bring back the afternoon tea trend.


    Practise in class and then eat your baking successes with a cup of tea.

    About your host, The Avenue Cookery School

    The Avenue Cookery School is a family-run leaning business based in Wandsworth in South West London. The owner and head chef Diana began her career as a chalet chef before discovering her entrepreneurial side and founding a number of specialist food ventures. Infamously, Diana taught at The Grange Cookery School in Somerset for 7 years before starting The Avenue, where she has been ever since.

    Diana is supported by her son Richard and daughter Sophie.

    The food at The Avenue can be considered classic chic but full of fun twists and turns (ranging from macaroon masterclasses to gluten free baking to simple supper classes). All the classes are taught in the school's beautiful kitchen facilities in a relaxed environment.
