Eric Chong The Birmingham Cake Connection

I have been busy. Many students dropping by the studio to learn baking. Some even flew in from abroad and that got me truly excited. My time was booked and hooked and I can’t chicken out. I was worried as I was not sure the exceptation from my students but I always make sure my students get the best out of me.

A British born lad Eric Chong was one of my student who flew in from Birmingham for a four days full day intensive one to one baking class session with me and Ben. All the techniques and recipes were well architected for Eric. A well dedicated Eric was a fast learner and had won great admiration from Chef Ben and myself for having such precision and perfection at even a beginner level.

Eric Chong now is back in Birmingham polishing his art of baking and we hope he will be able to embark into churning his own home cake bakes soon. He got excited too and he had recently emailed me of all his successful bakes. Aren’t all of the creation look just fantastic?

    Wow, thanks a lot for the compliments!! Didn’t expect this at all!

    I must thank Sunny, my SiFu who has taught me loads of baking techniques and has inspired me in decorating cakes. Also many thanks to Sidney who has spent his precious time in sharing his knowledge and ideas. Not to forget Ben Beh, another SiFu who has shared his valuable bread making skills!

    I have had a fantastic class with 2 fantastic SiFu and have now mastered the basic skills in baking. Definitely would recommend everyone to attend the classes!
