Find How I Learned to Bake

When the baking bug bit me I tried to bake cupcakes, muffins, simple cakes but the attempts either ended in disasters or I was not completely satisfied with the results. The cakes never seemed to be fluffy, the cupcakes never domed, puff pastry was soft and not crisp….sigh :(

I wanted to bake cake pastry at home like a pro! This made me sit for hours on the internet searching for recipes and spending thousands of rupees on baking books. As printed books are costlier I used to buy ebooks mostly(you should see my collection…..:)) While these books helped a bit but what about the technique. I wanted to see the process and technique. Added to this was the fact that I am based in India. For all those who don’t know baking at home in India is not a usual thing to do. We have our own food and sweets which do not require baking but here I was who loved baking. My city does not have any baking school and I wanted to desperately learn to bake and that too the traditional way. The quest to learn baking made me search the YouTube. HERE I FOUND KEIKO. Boy, was I hooked seeing her videos!!! I instantly joined the keikos-cake.

I got to learn Swiss Roll, Cream Puffs, New York Cheese Cake, French Apple Tart, Lava Cake, Tiramisu, Macarons, Croissant, Sachertorte, Marshmallows, Saint Honore, Religiuese, Vanilla Tart, Madelienes, Glass Desserts, Banana Cake, Carrot Cake, Eclairs… at keikos-cake.

Why this website?

Anyone can very well ask me why am I promoting Keiko. Well…. when I was searching for a good resource on baking on the internet I spent months searching and trying the recipes I found on the various baking sites. It was sheer waste of time and money as I bought various baking books and tried recipes which first looked good enough but did not work out. It was just chance that I stumbled on Keiko’s YouTube video. It took me some time to take the risk and get enrolled on her site. After all its hard earned money… It took me weeks as I kept on searching but kept coming back to her site and the videos on YouTube. What encouraged me was the 60 days money-back guarantee which she gives plus my initial correspondence with her. She came across as helpful, quick to reply and easy to learn from. A big plus was that she is a Pastry Chef.

Now while googling for online baking courses if I had found a website which could have endorsed her I would have not wasted my time signing up. Her monthly charges meanwhile did actually went up. Also from time to time she removes some of the recipes from the monthly member area which are then sold separately, By the time I signed up, some of her recipes had been moved to Spring 2010 and Summer 2010. I had to buy these on extra charges :( . But it was worth it :)

I had promised myself then that I would help others to find the right source to learn to bake cake pastry at home like a pro if they are interested to learn.
