Summary Let's Cook! Easter Baking for Teenagers

Young bakers will learn the essential methods of baking as they master traditional Hot cross buns as well as how to make light, fluffy cupcakes and perfect buttercream.

After teaching you some top tips and techniques, including how to do a signature buttercream swirl, the Leiths teachers will encourage you to get creative and put your personal twist on your bakes as part of our Easter cupcake challenge.

Throughout the class there will be plenty of opportunity to ask our chefs for tips on any baking conundrums.

This class is suitable for young people aged 11 – 18 years old (11 year olds must already be in school year seven).

Typical recipes:


  • Apple and sultana hot cross buns


  • Easter Cupcake Challenge/ Mini chocolate truffle cakes
  • Apple and sultana hot cross buns
  • Passionfruit yogurt loaf cakes

Please note, recipes may change

Class structure

Cooking with your classmates is an integral part of your Leiths experience. You will cook some of your recipes in pairs, and some independently – whatever the ratio, there is always more than enough food, and often food to take home too (foil containers and bags provided).

Your day will comprise of a mixture of hands on cookery and demonstrations performed by the chef who is running the session. The exact format will vary from class to class depending on the style of cuisine and, in the case of visiting chefs, their individual teaching style.

Unless otherwise stated, you will be eating the food that you have cooked for lunch, usually with wine or elderflower cordial around a communal table. Classes that do not result in cooking lunch will enjoy a delicious Leiths Ploughman’s.
