We’ll be having a number of workshops throughout the day, from learning to perfect the cupcake swirl, sugarcraft flowers and cake pops, to craft activities like making your own recipe cards. Everything we raise through donations to our workshops will go to our two charities, Oxfam and Helen & Douglas House .

There are limited places available in some workshops so we do recommend booking via our booking form.
