Bake with a Legend

Do you know a bride-to-be who has the baking bug? This Great British Bake Off hen party experience has certainly got our tummies rumbling…

It’s that time of year when the whole nation gets completely hooked on genoise sponge and croquembouche, as The Great British Bake Off dominates our screens once again.

And to celebrate the show’s ninth season, Hen Heaven is now offering brides-to-be the chance to meet and bake with former GBBO contestants as part of an exciting hen do experience.

Bake with a Legend is a three-hour lesson where you’ll be given demonstrations, learn tips and tricks, and have a go at creating your very own batch of baked delights. If you impress, you could be the lucky hen walking away with a prize at the end.

Former contestants who will be providing their expert guidance include Glen Cosby and Howard Middleton from the 2013 series (who could forget the famous ‘custard gate’?), plus 2016 finalists Jane Beedle and Andrew Smyth.

Of course, no hen do would be complete without some prosecco, so each hen will receive a sparkling glass of bubbly as you watch your baking legend whip up some delicious bites. There will also be opportunities to chat with your star baker and ask them questions about their time on the show.

All the essentials you need for your experience will be provided, including equipment and ingredients, and better yet, you’ll even get boxes for leftovers. What a treat!
