Tradition & Modern German Baking & Christmas Goodies

Black Forest Cake

17-21/December 2018 from 10:00 to 16:00 

Once a year special, 5 days (30 hours) of an introduction to baking and its technique portrayed in traditional and modern interpretation of well known German classics with a seasonal Christmas twist.

$1250.00(+tax) for 5 days (30 hours)

This is a fast-paced pastry course and some serious baking experiences are required and strongly recommended. If you happen to be a novice baker with none or limited experiences then The Pastry Training Certificate Program would be more suitable. As with all of our courses, we focus on the development of hand-skills and our courses are very hands-on and students need to be reasonable fit and enthusiastic about working with their hands. Please come prepared for kitchen-work, solid none slip shoes, long pants and some serious cake boxes to haul your Torten, Kuchen & Gebaeck home.

Menu:
Depending on seasons availability minor changes can be expected. All cake names are listed in German as, to be honest, some of the English translations could sound a bit funny….
A quick google image search should help you figuring out what we are going to do in case your in-depth knowledge of German Cakes is not up to snuff yet.
