“The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.” — Plato
Learning baking and decorating is not easy enough. Being a home baker and running your bakery from home isn't easy enough.
There are so many tutorials on the internet, but how do you know which one is the right one? There are so many expensive courses from pastry training academies, but you have to move cities for months.
That's why we have created Bakedemy, a virtual academy, exclusively for home bakers.
We cover everything from basics of baking and decorating to entrepreneurship and pricing. Each module is carefully crafted and delivered by the world class Pastry Chefs and Cake Artists from India.
This course is your stepping stone to create a successful home baking business.
