'Clean' & Free from Sweet Baking with 'Eat & Mess'

Book online

Baking doesn't have to be about using lots of sugar and butter to create delicious results- there are plenty of delicious alternatives to try too.

In this hands-on class, the recipes we make in class are free from refined sugars and wheat, and we will be using seasonal ingredients sourced locally, even from the Medicine garden! You will take home everything made from the day in addition to recipe sheets.

We will be discussing the benefits and different qualities of using alternative ingredients to achieve delicious results that will help from a both dietary and nutritional perspective! Please note that we will be using nuts in this class.

Skills learnt include:

  • gluten free flours and their differences
  • sugar and dairy alternatives and their effects in baking
  • making caramel
  • general baking and decorating theory
  • layering and decorating cakes, including palette knife and piping

Everything made in class will be boxed up and taken home along with recipes from the day, and we will be discussing the benefits and different qualities of using alternative ingredients to achieve delicious results that will help from a both dietary and nutritional perspective! Please note that we will be using nuts in this class.
