The Event

"I'll show you how to bake a stunning Yule log scene decorated with chocolate ganache, fruit compote and a vegan mousse – as well as gingerbread sandwich cookies with a Swiss buttercream filling. We’ll create a showstopper scene using different components that work together as a complete dessert, or individually to create other delicious festive treats." Kerran Kaur, expert plant based baker.

This masterclass will include:

  • How to use different vegan baking ingredient staples that will solve all your vegan cake baking challenges

Note On Ticket Price Change 

Apologies we have had to pause offering a concession rate for our paying in-person cookery classes. Due to the pandemic we cannot fit as many people in the kitchen which means classes generate less vital revenue needed to keep the charity going. 

We are still offering tiered ticket prices for our brilliant online live cookery classes (£5-£30), recordings of live classes (£3-£20) and everyone is welcome to sign up to our FREE to attend in-person and online community class newsletter list by emailing classes@madeinhackney.org. Thank you for your understanding. 

Refunds/transfers: we require a minimum of 7 days' notice for any cancellations or transfers once you have booked onto a class to enable us to try to resell your ticket. 

Please understand our charity needs time to enable us to try to resell your tickets as we rely heavily on the income generated. You are also welcome to give your ticket to a friend or family member in case of last minute illness (just email classes@madeinhackney.org to let us know).

Vouchers: To redeem a voucher purchased on our site, please contact us to book a place. If contacting us by email please attach your voucher. If telephoning, have your voucher to hand so you can quote the voucher number.
