BAKE IT

Create amazing cakes and bakes!

Six half days of baking + six half days of multi activity

Is baking your thing? Or are you looking to brush up on your pastry skills?

What’s it all about?
Inspired by the 'Great British Bake Off' spend half of your holiday in the kitchen creating amazing cakes and bakes to wow your friends & family and then half experiencing the best of PGL classic multi activities. You'll even get a recipe book to take home and practice with!

What will I learn?
You’ll begin by learning the essentials – how to prepare the kitchen and your workspace as well as how to use a range of cooking equipment. You’ll also be given your own set of equipment to work with during your time with us. Our professional bakers will guide you to create all sorts of goodies, from pastries to cakes and cookies! You'll be using mixers and ovens, learn about weighing, folding, sifting, mixing, glazing and piping. We'll also teach you a variety of cooking techniques- from baking to boiling, frying and steaming!

What will I be cooking?
Your Bake It holiday will cover a different topic every day so that you will get to cover a range of techniques. The days will include Pastry day, Cake day, Biscuits & scones day, Dessert day, Bread day and The BIG bake day! We will be doing a little work each day towards the final big bake so that it really has the WOW factor!

All the recipes that you’ll be following will be given to you in your own recipe book that you can take home at the end of your holiday.

Can I do other activities as well?
Yes, every day you’ll also enjoy a half day of exciting activities from our multi activity programme.

Do I need any experience?
No, our professional bakers will pass on their knowledge so you can develop from any level of experience.

Do I need any specialist equipment?
No, we will provide you with a full range of cooking equipment.

Schedule Activity
Breakfast Off to the dining room with the rest of your group to fuel up for the day, you’ll need plenty of energy to keep you going. Breakfast includes cereals, toast, yogurts, porridge, and cooked breakfast – you choose!
Don’t forget to refill your drinks bottle before you head off to your first activity!
Morning Activities Half day Bakery School
Lunch Worked up an appetite? Great – it’s time to replenish your energy stores with the dining room. If you have energy to spare after lunch your Group Leader will always be ready for a quick kickabout with a ball or you could relax and chat with your new friends.
Afternoon Activities High Ropes and Trapeze
Dinner Time to eat again – a different menu each day (and did we mention, often evening meals come with a hot pudding too – or you can stick with fruit if you prefer).
Evening Ents Talent shows, campfires, quizzes and much more – your evening entertainment programme gives you the chance to get together with everyone else in your age group and have some laughs.
Bedtime Bedtime. The younger ones go first whilst older groups have time to chill out and chat or watch a DVD. Then it’s lights out and time to sleep ready to do it all over again tomorrow!
