Baking & Cooking
Do you want to learn something new from your neighbours?
Everyone loves the smell of freshly baked cakes! Come along to a Make and Bake day in the community kitchen with some of Barking’s local bakers. On the day there will be a number of activities, including decorating biscuits and a Baking Show and Tell. Bring along your home baked goods to share and show off your skills.
