The tart is decorated with raspberries, chopped hazelnuts, and shredded chocolate. All of these are optional though if you want your tart to be nut-free or chocolate only.
The creme anglaise is a bit of a harder sauce which is why this class is geared a bit more towards intermediate bakers. 🙂 I will also be asking participants to make the chocolate ganache that will be whipped up either the day before or at least several hours before the class to give it time to cool fully. This is super super easy and full instructions will be included.

What level baker is this for?
This class is geared more towards intermediate bakers because of the creme anglaise.
What if I don’t have the ingredients/equipment?
Not to worry! You can choose whether you’d like to simply watch and bake later, or bake along with me.
What if I miss the class?
You will be sent a reminder email one hour before the class will start. Unfortunately, if you miss the class, it is non-refundable. You will have the recipes and are welcome to get in touch with any questions you have.
Is the class recorded?
The beauty of the class is that it’s live with lots of fun interaction. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and you can always get in touch after the class via email or on the FB group. A recording of the live class will be sent to participants after it takes place. It will be available for viewing for 72 hours. No names will be on the recording and the recording will be almost entirely of Molly during the class. If you do not want your face to be shown, please turn off your camera. This will allow you to rewatch the class to pick up any tips that might have been missed. Also, it’s perfect in case you were not able to attend the class due to the time, so you can view it and bake along.
How do I ask questions during the class?
You can ask questions during the live broadcast on Zoom either by commenting or talking directly with me! There will be time at the end of each class for questions and you’re always welcome to get in touch with me before or after the class at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When do we get the recipes?
The recipes and a list of equipment recommendations will be emailed to you with the Zoom link to your class about a week before the class. To get a headstart, you’ll find them listed in the description above.
What if I have never used Zoom before?
Zoom is super easy. If you haven’t used it before, I recommend clicking on the link a couple of minutes before and Zoom will walk through any necessary set up you need to take.
Can I gift this workshop to someone?
Absolutely! Make a note in the order that this is a gift with their name and email address and I will send them the details for the class and a note saying it’s been gifted.
