Explore the Best Baking Classes in NYC

Baking is a centuries-old practice of using the oven to make homemade loaves of bread, bagels, pizza, and fresh pastries. Baking is a popular way of cooking today, with skilled bakers making homemade bread and pastries from the comfort of home. Baking is a wonderful creative outlet utilizing a wide variety of ingredients to make homemade baked goods to share with friends and family. While baking begins to maintain sustenance, home baking is a great way to maintain health and low-stress levels. 

Why You Should Learn Baking in NYC

The advantage of learning baking is gaining an enjoyable hobby, and it’s an effective stress-relieving activity. Baking is also a way to connect with friends, family, and neighbors that enjoy the same activity. Learning baking skills is a marvelous opportunity to save money on catering at family gatherings. The joy of baking during the holidays is a beautiful way to connect with your guests by sharing tasty treats. 

Another reason to learn baking skills is to gain access to employment opportunities in the culinary arts, such as finding work as a pastry chef or caterer. Pastry chefs are in short supply in New York City, and the starting salary begins at $35,000 to $52,000 per year, according to Glassdoor. Learning more about baking opens the doors to other opportunities, such as opening your bakery as a small business, and the bustling metropolis of New York City is known for small specialty shops. Baking is popular among communities, with bake sales at churches, schools, and community centers to bring people together. Baking makes for a flexible side hustle as a caterer or private chef. 

In-Person Baking Classes & Schools in NYC

In-person baking classes in New York City are widely popular and offered by culinary schools and specialty shops. In-person baking classes help teach the basics of baking, like accurately measuring ingredients, making homemade dough, and what techniques are best for each baked good. For example, baking macaroons can be tricky because they are delicate cookies notorious for falling apart during the process if they aren’t handled with care. But, with CourseHorse’s wide variety of baking courses, you’re sure to have a head start. The advantages of in-person baking courses are that they offer guidance from experienced instructors with hands-on teaching techniques.

The first fun course offered by CourseHorse in the NYC area is Cake Decorating 101. The course provides insights into the foundation of cake decorating and piping techniques for designing shells, stars, zig-zag patterns, and rosettes.

Virtual Baking Classes & Schools

The differences between online and in-person courses are the flexibility to attend classes from the comfort of your home and use your kitchen. However, being prepared is essential for success in these online baking classes because you have to supply your ingredients and equipment. On the bright side, the flexibility to attend from anywhere offers a beautiful advantage and saves time commuting to class in-person. Having baking basics on hand, like flour, sugar, and baking sheets, is highly recommended before attending online classes through CourseHorse. There are a wide variety of virtual baking classes and schools in the area of NYC.

Online baking courses are held through video conferencing software; Zoom is the preferred platform. The first available course is the Summer Pie Workshop, provided by Home Cooking New York.

Having the ingredients on hand of butter, flour, fruit, and sugar is important to be prepared for the course. The workshop provides tips and tricks for baking all sorts of pies. 

Teaching Table offers another virtual baking class called the Custard and Ice Cream workshop. The class provides instructions on making homemade ice cream, perfect for the summertime, and the process of making custard. While an ice cream maker might be helpful, the course also provides churning methods to accommodate students without an ice cream maker. The class will make frozen lemon custard and masala chai ice cream. Teaching Table inspires cooks and young families to learn baking techniques while eating healthy and in positive learning environments. 

The Afternoon Tea workshop offered by Teaching Table also provides a fun opportunity to enjoy an authentic British tea time from home.
