  • Macarons are increasingly popular but are renowned for testing the skills of even the most practiced of bakers!  Our fun and informative macaron masterclasses are suitable for bakers and non bakers alike. We keep the class sizes small to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn the tricks of successful "macaronage" and to gain the confidence to bake delicious macarons.

  • Learn to make your own delicious home-baked filled doughnuts, in the comfort of Susie's charming Cotswold home in Shipston on Stour.   

    This fun and informative class combines a detailed demonstration and a hands-on workshop, and all the doughnuts you bake are yours to take home and share! Refreshments will be served throughout the class.

  • In our “Bake with Me” task-based classes, especially designed for 7 -13 year olds, the children work in pairs to make a batch of macaron shells and then have lots of fun decorating them with plenty of sprinkles.  Their creativity is given free rein to make a delicious filling for their macarons, which they will take home at the end of the class.

    We also offer private birthday parties and can even come to you!
