Betty Crocker Master Class and giveaway



I recently attended the Central school of cookery with some fellow bloggers to attend a Betty Crocker master class.The event was fun and interactive with a hands on baking and decorating class.


 After a brief introduction about the history of Betty Crocker, we set about baking  with the  Betty Crocker products.




The prepared Betty Crocker mixes are really easy to use and you can get guaranteed results each time you use them. The mixes can be used in innovative ways to create a multitude and variety of cakes that not only look good but taste awesome. You can check out the full  Betty Crocker baking range here.



At the event we used the red velvet mix, the vanilla mix, the brownie mix and the cookie mix.With amazing team work with my friends Akesha Reid and LeBinh we created some delectable cakes.


We made some lovely marbled swirley snowflake red velvet and vanilla loaf cake with frosting, some crunchy christmas brownie houses, chocolate chip cookie brownies and some Christmas themed vanilla cup cakes with vanilla frosting.



For the frosting Betty Crocker have delicious cream cheese frosting and their new vanilla Icing and Rainbow Sprinkles which is a two in one solution, you get the sprinkles with the icing. It is convenient and easy to use, as it comes with the perfect amount of sprinkles and the creamy vanilla icing to frost any cookies  or cakes. Betty Crocker™ Vanilla Icing with Rainbow Sprinkles is available in your local supermarket from and retails at RRP of £2.85.






















At the masterclass we had lots of fun creating and decorating the cakes. The emphasis was on christmas and we really enjoyed decorating our bakes with christmassy fondant cut outs.


I had a lovely time baking at the Betty Crocker Masterclass, and would like to thank Betty Crocker for inviting me and giving me a wonderful goody bag  so that I could continue baking at home too.
