10 Singapore Baking Classes every aspiring baker should know about


What type of baker are you?

 
  1. The Avid Baker - bakes very often, experiments with every single recipe existent on earth, and knows what temperature your dough loves and whatever that makes or breaks your tarts.

  2. The Leisure Baker - once in a while, you look at your dusty old oven that hasn't been used in a couple of weeks, then decide to hit Google up for some awesome looking cupcakes you're sure you're capable of conjuring up.

  3. The Amateur Baker - sure, you can bake chocolate cookies and simple cupcakes without a recipe, but you're still on your journey of discovering how to bake that perfect cake for your boyfriend/crush/insert relevant noun.

  4. The No-Oven Baker - you like baking but unfortunately, you and an oven are not destined to live together in the same house yet.

  5. A Baker? You kidding me? What is dough, I can eat it raw, right?

Whether you're a baking extraordinaire or the one who attempts to not make a mess with all that flour every time you take the kitchen by storm, you would probably have had one of those moments where you go "If only I could bake this!" or "If only someone could make this for me!"

I'm personally a mix of 3), 4) and a bit of 5), which means that I do spend some time every now and then researching on outlets to get my baking fix. It has dawned on me that it is pretty hard sourcing for baking classes, especially when that urge comes to you in the middle of the month and alas, you realize that 3/4 of the classes you're possibly interested in has already been fully booked. Nawwww.
