Step 1: Decide the Products for your Baking School

The first thing that you need to do is decide on what you are going to offer your students. This means choosing a baking niche which matches your talent and area of expertise and should also resemble the demand of your area. You can focus on nutritional baking, eggless baking, etc. or you can teach some specific techniques and tricks to your students.

The main thing is to decide the objective of your baking school and then sticking to it and expanding your school’s niche only after it has gained a reputation in your present theme.

Step 2: Find the Perfect Location and Get the Necessary Licenses

Once you have decided the theme of your baking class, you need to find a location to hold your classes. You can either give baking classes at students’ homes or you can use the kitchen in your bakery store. However, before you proceed with this you will need to reach out to the local health department to understand the feasibility of this option.

The kitchen layout of your baking school will also need to be monitored by the health and food licensing department before you can proceed with the classes. Make sure that you get all the licenses in place otherwise you could risk shutting down of your establishment.

Perfect Location

Step 3: Determine your Kitchen Layout 

Next, you need to decide the layout for your kitchen where you will be giving the students a hands-on session. If you are planning to open a proper baking school then you might need to install a big kitchen countertop and several cooking stations to allow your students to work freely and safely. You will need to ensure that the kitchen layout won’t hinder the movement of your students and won’t make them accidentally fall or bump into each other, thereby reducing the chances of kitchen injuries.

You might also need to install separate sinks for your students to comply with the health code so make sure that you plan your kitchen space properly.

Step 4: Purchase the Necessary Baking Equipment

You will also need to invest in the required baking equipment and tools in order to proceed with your baking school. If you are likely to show demos to your students then you would need extra baking tools like whisks, mixing bowls, baking pans, etc. However, if you are going to have hands-on sessions then you would need to have these essential baking tools in bulk quantity. You will also need to get stand mixers, ovens, refrigerators, etc. so that your students can use them individually during the classes.

Step 5: Market your Baking School

Once you have established your baking school, you will need to market it properly in order to grow it. You can hold various baking workshops or events to attract more customers. You can also form collaboration with other professionals in your area to advertise your baking school. A blog or printing an advertisement in magazines is also a great way to get the word out.

White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

This week has been incredibly busy for me; full of errands and appointments. It’s been pretty stressful, therefore I decided I needed a special treat; I went with my favorite cookies.

A few years ago, I worked with a girl named Zara. She was from Sri Lanka and was (and is) the most genuinely nicest person I have ever met to date. I never saw her upset, nor even irritated. She would often bring some kind of baked treat to our meetings; cupcakes, cookies, etc. One day she brought these cookies. I think they were gone within 10 minutes. Everyone loved them and no one could stop eating them. I begged her for the recipe and, lucky for me, she gave me a copy. Thank you, Zara, for the best cookie I’ve ever eaten.

Be careful if you make these, you won’t be able to stop eating them.
