Best baking classes and studios in Hong Kong
Sure, we’ve all heard of co-working spaces but a co-baking space? BakeBe is the first of its kind in Hong Kong and you never have to worry about lagging behind or the instructor not giving you enough attention. The steps are all taught via the BakeBe App! Bake the prettiest cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and more – ranging in five levels of difficulty. A maximum of two people can take on one project – with a peer charge of 30%. It’s better to book in advance than to walk-in (gotta make sure you’ll get a spot). All ingredients and tools are provided at BakeBe.
BakeBe has locations in Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay.

Dish out some gourmet-looking cakes and desserts at this homey baking studio in Yau Ma Tei.

5. Twinkle Garden
Piping, piping, piping! It’s not only one of the most satisfying processes of baking but it’s also where you get to experiment with techniques. Korean flower piping may not be the easiest but it’s worth all the effort – the masterpiece at the end looks so classy and exquisite! At Twinkle Garden you can master the arts of buttercream frosting and wafer flower piping to create realistic looking edible flowers. You can sign up for either a group class or private class. Private classes are slightly more expensive but it’s one-on-one and offers greater flexibility in timing.

From opening her own bakery to now hosting her own baking classes, Anita loves sharing her love for baking at Little Miss Macarons.
