Would really recommend giving this class a go to anyone visiting Budapest, especially if you’re already looking for a chance to try chimney cakes (even more satisfying to eat knowing you made it yourself!) Upon our arrival we were greeted by Lily (hope the spellings correct) who was incredibly friendly and offered us complementary coffee which was devine. The class itself was very informative into the history of the chimney cake. She was incredibly patient and encouraging to us first timers, we were nervous at first having not done anything similar before, but under her instruction we made some delicious chimney cakes! The certificate we got was such a nice touch and we were delighted with it. Overall the experience was brilliant and we would 100% recommend it to anyone visiting Budapest!!
