Join our live bake-along to introduce you to this tasty and sweet snack, fifteens!

Ever heard of “fifteens”?

No, not the number – it’s actually the name of a local delicacy in Northern Ireland.

Rumour has it that fifteens were originally named as such because their ingredients list / recipe required ‘15’ of each item!

We’re just more interested in enjoying the final product…

The Student Disability & Wellbeing Service invite you to take part in our LIVE bake-along with us.

We’ll set you up with some FREE pre-assembled ingredient kits, which contains everything you need to produce this tasty treat!

Fifteens are super easy to make, so all skillsets and abilities are welcome and encouraged! Whether you are a novice to the kitchen, or a seasoned expert, the end product will be sure to please your taste buds.

Register below to claim your free kit, and we will let you know about your collection options – or how we can deliver to you if you are in quarantine!


When is the bake-along?

Once you claim your kit, join us for the LIVE bake-along session on:

Date: Wednesday 20 October 2021

Time: 2:00pm-3:00pm

Where: MS Teams – joining instructions / link will be issued after registration



There are lots of kits available, so please do spread the word to any international students who you think might enjoy making these.



This is an interactive bake-along, so you will be on camera baking along with us and other fellow students. Remember to get set up with all of your ingredients in front of you, and your device situated where you can see what is happening – while also letting us see how you are getting on!

There will be lots of time for questions, and as we say here in Belfast, time for lots of banter!
