The Queen gets baked in Brighton

PRESS RELEASE: Cookery Doodle Doo Launched Jubilee Boot Camp for grown-ups! 

On Sunday the royal family were affectionately baked into jubilee-themed biscuits at a Brighton baking class.

Participants created unique edible photo frames designed to celebrate the upcoming Diamond Jubilee. The patriotic designs featured The Queen, Prince Charles, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as Her Majesty’s favourite pets.

Cookery Doodle Doo is hosting a series of adult craft and baking classes at the Artist Residence hotel in Brighton that are designed to prepare guests and local residents for the May Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Classes include making Corgi Piñatas, baking edible royal photo biscuits and “lazy” no-sew bunting.

Cookery Doodle Doo normally organise cookery and craft classes and parties for children, but noticing how much the adults enjoyed themselves and with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee fast approaching – it seemed like a perfect excuse to run a fun event just for them.

Organiser Katie Elfer said “This is a boot camp like no other – in fact, you may even put on weight! With the Queen’s Jubilee fast approaching many people would like to improve their baking or crafting skills so that their street parties feel a bit more personal. Us Brits can be a patriotic lot, but I think many will still enjoy the sense of mischief stuffing sweets into a Corgi Piñata or sandwiching a well-loved royal into a biscuit. These quirky classes are designed to be a sociable and relaxed – the perfect place to chill out on a Sunday afternoon and get creative.”

A children’s version of the baking class will be held in Brighton on 2nd June:
