Baking classes for Aspiring Bakers

Aspiring Bakers is reaching new heights!

A month ago, I received an email from Gim Hin Lee/Bake King, a leading baking ingredient supplier in Singapore, who love our Aspiring Bakers event and is interested to do a collaboration with us.

We are discussing about organizing baking classes at a special rate for AB bloggers at Bake King and also allowing the participants to have a discount at their store after the class. The class will be planned according to our monthly theme and taught by experienced baking teachers. It is a good chance for us to learn and meet to have fun!

I'm posting this to check the response from all of you.

1) Will you be interested in joining these class?
2) Do you prefer cooking or baking classes?
3) Do you prefer hands-on or demo classes?
4) Do you prefer weekday or weekend, daytime or nighttime classes?

Leave a comment here to tell us your preference. :)

  1. wow... well done AB! It certainly makes good business sense for Bake King too.
    In response to your survey:
    1)Yes, if the lesson fee is reasonably discounted (their rates are not cheap).

    2)No special preference, depends on theme.

    3)Either hands-on or demo is fine, the instructor is more impt for me.

    4)Weekday, daytime

  2. It a great news! I love to join in. I prefer a baking class, either hands-on or demo class is fine for me. The BIG problem for me is timing. I think weekend, night class will be better for me. Hope I can join in the fun.

  13. Hi all,

    First of all, I enjoy the monthly theme and has been following ever since I chanced upon it.

    If you guys are going to showcase your food from the same recipe of the same teacher, it won't be interesting to follow any more.

    Moreover, some teachers forbid their recipes to be shared openly, example the Sarawa Seri Kaya Cake. A particular blogger fr HK has been tempting her readers with photos of the same cake on and off, ignoring her readers request for the recipe. I wonder why those pple still bother to beg for the recipe each time she shows off the photos. *LOL*

    Through the generous sharing of you guys here, readers have benefitted and at the same time, you guys get to enjoy the process of making and the spirit of sharing.

    Just hope things remain the same, but, of course, it is just my humble opionion. Not here to stir up any controversy.

    Thank-you.

    Best Regards,
    Silent Reader

  15. Hi, I am very keen in the baking class, anytime and anyday. Please advise schedule when it is available. Thank you.

  16. Yes, everyone including non-bloggers can join in. Just that the classes will match with our theme each month, so we called it baking classes for AB, but everyone is welcome! :)

  17. Hi Silent reader,

    Thanks for your feedback and your support for our event!

    Rest assured that AB will still remain the same. I'm sure our members will continue contributing their recipes. Furthermore, the classes are only for those who live in Singapore and we have AB members from all over the world.

    The baking classes is only an extra place for us to gather to learn and bake according to the theme. I understand that recipes from baking classes cannot be revealed. Our rules for joining AB is recipe MUST BE included. But I will consider including bloggers who attended the classes to post their food (without recipe) in the roundup, perhaps in another section.

    Don't worry, AB will continue to be the place for sharing. We have lots of themes waiting to be done. :)

  24. this is an interesting idea. and it would be a monthly get-together session for AB bakers as well!

    but like what Janine and some others have mentioned, it really depends on the nature of the class and who's teaching it. I prefer hands on, weekday and baking.
