One of the things that I love equally as much as baking is meeting fellow bakers in Frankfurt and teaching them all I know about baking the most perfect cupcakes. For about 2 years now, I have had at least 3 weekends a month booked with students from all over Germany coming to Frankfurt for my classes.
The most popular one is the one where I give away my vanilla raspberry cupcakes recipe and teach my students how to make swiss meringue buttercream. In this class there is also an introduction to working with fondant and gum paste and I teach how to make little daisy flowers and lady bugs.
A close second, is the decoration course where you learn how to put the perfect fondant dome on a cupcake and how to make a beautiful rose bud.
I run all my courses from my baking studio and additionally I have a longstanding partnership with the Genussakademie which is a culinary school here in Frankfurt. My courses are bestsellers on their website, and every course is fully booked.
This year I have introduced a new course, called Pralines. This means I teach you how to make your own box of truffles. Using traditional praline making techniques and new ones, I show you techniques and tricks to give you the confidence to work with chocolate. You learn how to temper chocolate, how to make ganache -3 ways, how to use cocoa butter to paint patterns, how to use chocolate foil transfers, and how to make two different types of fillings. I am really looking forward to this one!
I also run cake pop courses where you learn my chocolate cake recipe and a sharp edges courses which means working with a big cake, learning how to fill it and working with ganache as a medium to get those sharp fondant edges!
All the courses are in German. After 6 years of living in Frankfurt now, with a thick English accent I do my best and communicate with all my participants in German.
