Hello my dear readers,
How are you? How is your week?
Mine started with lots of high priority working tasks and little willingness.
Oh well, work is almost always like this.
But the amazing part is that Sunday I have started my first ever baking classes and it was awesome.
I was standing and baking for 8 continued hours but was so fulfilling.
Do what you like and you’ll not feel tired not even a second 😉
Was it worth it to register for these baking classes?
Absolutely worth it! The kitchen is awesome, filled with everything a baker can dream of and our pastry chef Al has lots of patience and guide us though each step.
In the first class we’ve learned the basics for sweet & savoury dough & crusts.
For the savoury we’ve done a quiche Lorraine and chicken pie 🥧 to lick your fingers and for the sweet, we’ve discovered how to make pate sucree and we’ve used it to make apple crumble tart with streusel and poached pear and almond tart.
Now, I’m not really new at making dough, but I never managed to find that perfect consistency. The ones that I did in this class were simply perfection for me.
I couldn’t believe that these were my creations 😍
Yep, very pleased with myself.
The second class was all about cookies.
We’ve learned different techniques and versions of how to make cookies: from piped cookies (almond spritz) to dropped cookies (chocolate mudslide & asian cashew cookies) and rolled cookies (checkerboard cookie & biscotti).
The almond spritz cookies are similar to crumbly butter cookies, the chocolate mudslide cookies are cookies crispy on the outside and soft and creamy in the middle loaded with chocolate and the asian cashew cookies are very crunchy cookies.
At home I usually make all my dough by hand or with a manual mixer but here I have used for the first time a Kitchen Aid.
Oh my, I need one at home 🤪 It makes your life so much easier in the kitchen.
That checkerboard cookies look amazing 🤩 Done all by myself, can you believe it?
And the biscotti, simply crunchy and loaded with pistachios, heaven.
Now of course, I was too busy baking than taking pictures but of course I’ll challenge myself to re-do them at home where I’ll have more time for step-by-step photos and recipes 😉
Easy to say that I cannot wait for the next class where will be all about cakes foaming with lots of cakes and frozen desserts. I don’t know for you, but Milk Honey Parfait with Salted Caramel & White Choc Mirror Glaze sounds absolutely divine and super difficult to make 🤪
We’ll see next time 😉
Never miss a post:
Baking classes done at Palate Sensations Culinary School Singapore.
Wow! That checkered cookie looks really good! You did an amazing job!
Thank you very much! Very appreciated ☺️
Wow these look incredible!! Did you learn and do all these in one class? The experience must have been very exciting and refreshing and productive! Hope you have just as much fun re-making them at home!! 🙂 🙂
Thank you very much. We had two classes in the same day, 4 hours each ☺️
The experience was amazing! I’m very glad I’ve registered 😉 Beside learning new recipes, I’ve learned also techniques ☺️😉 I hope at home will be so easy as it was there ☺️
Wow 4 hours each, I absolutely love that! I’m personally nervous about baking therefore can imagine how much all the practice and nonstop working must have helped! The only way to become good at something is to keep at it 🙂 And when you re-bake it all at home, you’ll have double the practice which is even better!!! 😀 😀
Very true! Practicing makes it better ☺️😉 When I’ll finish with all the courses I’ll try my luck at home ☺️
Awesome!! 😀 😀
Those cookies are just yum 😋.
Thank you very much ☺️
They look fabulous!!! Nice work 🙂
Thank you very much dear Sophie 🤗☺️
Lovely. Drooling…:D Wish could have them all from the pictures. Reality hits hard. lols
Wonderful creations. Love the checkered one.
Thank you very much Kritika! Hard work but wonderful and delicious results ☺️🍪
Yes and Patience. Patience is the key for the best cookie. 😀
I want one now. 😛
Very true! I wish I could send you some! These days I’ve shared the tarts and cookies with my colleagues at work and I still have at least 50 cookies 🍪 All my baking result ☺️
Wow I am only thinking about the 50 left 😀
Will try to bake and let you know. 🙂
Lots and lots of cookies 🍪 A cookie a day keeps the doctor away 🙈☺️ or let’s say at least 5 cookies per day otherwise for 2 months I’ll keep eating cookies ☺️🙈
Haha this sounds cool.
Yes, I can believe it. These look amazing. And I love apple crumble, which is very popular here.
I also use my hands with dough, but I trust you. I’m not buying any mixer or something, but I bet it’s easier. I need to feel it in my hands, that’s all. Old school.
Hahaha…thank you my dear! I guess if I would’ve the kitchen bigger I’ll definitely buy a Kitchen Aid ☺️ I do enjoy having my hands in the dough but sometimes can be really a big helper 😁
There, you said. If I had a bigger kitchen…My thinking exactly.
Hahaha…maybe one day 😉☺️
Wow! Also took a few lessons in baking with Nissa many years. We lost the pamphlets we were given in each class back in 2009 during typhoon Ondoy.
I’m sorry you’ve lost the pamphlets, are great tips ☺️
Is my first baking class ever and it was really amazing 🤩☺️
It’s nice to learn new crafts.
Very true ☺️
Wow! This post motivates me to enrol myself in one such baking class in here. Have a wonderful (& delicious) baking session ahead! 🙂
Thank you very much Megala! If you have the chance do it as is an amazing and exciting experience and delicious too 😋☺️
Thank you very much 😋
You are well justified in feeling pleased with yourself
Thank you very much Derrick! ☺️
Wow just look at all the sweet treats! Signing up for a cooking class is one of the most valuable investments, particularly if you love baking ☺️ I’m glad to hear you had a fun day 😀 Aiva
You said it right dear Aiva! It really is the most valuable investment that I did ☺️ and is all worth it ☺️Thank you very much! And of course all the results from the baking we take them home 😆 I have cookies for another week 😆☺️😋
they look amazing!!
Thank you very much ☺️
What fun! I mean, if you like baking this would be really fun! Great looking pies and cookies.
Thank you! Oh yes! I had fun and also learned new things and I’ve got home with lots of goodies 😋☺️ Wonderful!
That’s a lot of work for each of these classes, and the results are incredible. So much fun to take a cooking or baking class. You always learn something, and it gets us excited.
Definitely! I’ve never baked for 8 hours but was a wonderful experience! Lots of things to do and learn! Very exciting ☺️
Awesome friend these all look incredible. I knowing your baking class is worth it and fun. 😋💕
Thank you Suni! Definitely worth it ☺️😉
Want some cookies? ☺️🍪
Everything looks so good! Nice work!
Thank you very much ☺️
that’s got to be the weirdest thing to crave in SIngapore. All desire for baked goods vanishes when I am in SE Asia. But from here, it looks delicious!
Really? Why? Singapore is a food paradise where you can find lots of different cuisines for everyone’s taste ☺️😉 And they are good bakers too 😉
Wow! I am super impressed and jealous that I can’t take that course.
Hahaha…if you have a chance go for a baking class even if you know how to bake ☺️ It’s a wonderful, exciting and delicious experience ☺️😋
That is terrific. I think you have every right to be happy and proud of your results! They look so good!
Thank you very much Anne! ☺️😉
Grazie mille ☺️
Grazie mille ☺️🤩
They look amazing! I’ve wanted to try baking classes for AGES, this has motivated me to look into it properly – thank you 😉 I hope to see photos of next week’s results, the descriptions sound fabulous!
Thank you very much! If you have the chance go for it! It is well worth it! Even if you know how to bake, you learn new techniques, it is fun and delicious 😋
Can’t wait until the next session 😁
Everything you made looks really yummy! I’ve always wanted to take a baking class in person, it looks so fun! I love your gifs too, perfect 😂
Thank you very much! If you have the chance go for it! It is a fun and delicious way of spending time and learning something new 😉
Awesome! Baking class is on my “things to try out” list. My daughters have been asking for a KitchtAid, but Momma has been slow to respond since she doesn’t bake. I hear that they make baking a lot easier, faster, and fun. Must be true, right? Thanks for.
Thank you! If you have the chance go for it! Is fun and delicious 😋
Kitchen Aid is really making the life easier in the kitchen ☺️ I don’t have it but when I’ll have a bigger kitchen, will be the first thing to buy ☺️
Your baking looks amazing!! Great job~
Thank you very much ☺️
Looks so good! Awesome job!
Thank you very much!
You are most welcome!
That looks so mouth watering
Thank you very much!
Lovely post! Made me hungry and salivate. 😋
Thank you very much! I’m glad you like it ☺️
Those cookies look fabulous as do your other creations! I do love baking as well but haven’t done any this winter yet, a terrible thing!😀😻
Thank you very much Steve! Well, start baking something ☺️ Muffin will appreciate it ☺️😉😻
Yes, Muffin does like my cookies and cakes!😀😺🍪🎂🧁
Then start baking something ☺️😻
This week is going to be cold, so maybe I will. But it’s also a very busy week so…🙄😹
Always busy ☺️🙈😹
Well, sometimes anyway.😁😸
I am so jealous! These all look perfect and what a fun time!
Hahaha…thank you Diane! Really a fun and delicious time ☺️😉

The cookies look amazing. I wonder is they allow an only cookies class?
Thank you! Yes, you can also take only the class you wish ☺️😉
That’s great 😀
Wow and Yummy! Missed this first time round.
Thank you Goff! Was a great and delicious time ☺️😋
Cheers. Enjoyed the post. Happy Monday.
Thank you Goff! I hope you had a great Monday too!
Thanks. Busy day writing! Happy Tuesday.
I love chicken pie and quiches. I never had a pie or a quiche in Germany, but since moving to the UK I have eaten plenty. Your look like shop bought versions, they look great! I want the recipe for those once please 🙂
Thank you 😊 Yes, I was very pleased because really look like the shop versions only that I did them myself 😜
I will try to make them at home and then I’ll do the recipes too😉
Thanks, I am looking forward to them.
Yummy yum! You are awesome!🌸🍃🍁🍃
Thank you very much! You are very kind ☺️🌸
Everything you made looks wonderful! <3 Glad to know your class has been fruitful. 8 hours straight sound a bit like a torture to me. But then again, I could gawk in front of a writing program for 8 hours without problem so yeah, time won't matter when it's fun.
I had a good laugh at the gifs haha 😂
Look who’s here ☺️🤗
Thank you dear Jess! It has been very fruitful ☺️ Luckily my colleagues in the office helped me eat all the sweets this month 😁
It seems a long time but they just flew by so very fast 😁 It’s true, when you’re doing something that you like, time won’t matter 😁
This is certainly a great experience and I’m looking forward to the day you have your own café and you will have the most delicious desserts ever made 😊😊 Hope coronavirus will end soon so I can fly and eat some hahahaa 🤗🤗🤗🥰🥰🥰
Thank you my dear Koko! Yes, it was tiring but was a wonderful and delicious experience 😉😁
And I’m looking forward to have you as my guest and try all my delicious desserts ☺️😋😉🤗🤗😘😘😘
Yes yes I will definitely come and taste all these delicious desserts 😁😁 I don’t care how many PCRs I have to do 😂😂 really great and amazing dear 🥰🥰🥰🤗🤗🧸🧸💕💕
So far I guess we’re lucky that we did not do any PCR 😊 and I hope we’ll not need to…but I honestly cannot wait to have the possibility to travel again 🥰 I wish at least to be able to send you some 😋🥰💕🤗🧸
I wish that too!! Hopefully soon 🙏🏻🤗🤗🤗💕💕💕🥰🥰🥰
You are an excellent student. Everything an Aplus!
Thank you very much 😁
