If you have someone to buy for who is into baking and decorating vouchers could be the perfect present for them! Equally if you are stuck for what to buy them, an ‘experience’ present always goes down well.  They’ll also have something to take home with them at the end of the class. A class voucher for Marie’s Bakehouse might be the answer to your present buying worries. We run classes for children and adults, from our very popular Monthly Modeller Classes, to cupcake decorating and celebration cake classes. There are lots of opportunities for people to come along and learn something new.

Our new class list for the Spring term will be published in the next few weeks. If you would like to book for a private class, please contact us and we can discuss what might like to be taught and give you a price accordingly.

Yesterday was my birthday. I won’t divulge how old I was, but let’s just say I was one step closer to 40!
For the last few years, I’ve used my birthday as an excuse to make a cake that I’ve wanted to try for a while. But this year I was kinda caked out. Last week was a busy one in the Bakehouse.
So we went for a birthday treat to Teacup Kitchen on Thomas Street in Manchester.
My children (aged 5 and 7) had a large piece of Rainbow Cake between them. The cake slices are BIG, so one between them was more than enough.

It was like a battenburg style cake, jam in between the layers and wrapped in marzipan. And it certainly pleased the children 🙂
The other half and I plumped for cream tea with two different flavoured pots of tea, which also comes with free refills. There is a substantial range of teas to choose from, and we learnt ours needed four minutes to brew, being provided with an on the table egg style timer to make sure we left it for the optimal time. A very nice touch 🙂
The scone was delicious…

And certainly made a good replacement birthday cake!
I’d love to return here with some girlfriends, and we could try a selection of the cakes, the afternoon tea also looks very tempting!
