Everyone can bake. Or, at least, at Bakebe, such is true.
This new foodie spot in Taguig is one of the two international branches of Hong Kong’s first and only baking studio that makes use of a special app to teach guests how to bake, regardless of their experience level. Participants can come in completely unequipped and leave the studio feeling rewarded with the unique learning experience that Bakebe offers—and, of course, cake!
Opening on 13 November, Friday, Bakebe Philippines is all set to make aspiring Filipino bakers feel what it’s like to be a pro for a day. Here’s what you can expect on your visit:
No Instructors, Just An App
Bakebe simplifies the complicated art and science of baking through a user-friendly app they developed to walk users through the step-by-step process of baking the cake they chose to make.
The app’s guides and features (including video instructions and timers!) are so easy to use and understand, even first-time and novice bakers will feel like an ace as soon as they start.
So, how do you gain access to the Bakebe app? On your visit, you will be lent an iPad installed with the app for your session and it will flash your chosen baking project—easy peasy! All the ingredients and tools you’ll need will also be provided for you.
Should you need further assistance, there are pastry chefs on-site to help you out with anything you might need during your baking sesh.
What To Bake
Currently, Bakebe Philippines has 30 baking projects to choose from,
You can keep things basic with cookies, feel extra-creative with cupcakes, dare yourself to make macarons, or take on the ultimate challenge of baking a cake!
Among the most popular projects to try are Organic Earl Grey Tea Chiffon Cake with Lava Cream cheese in Lychee Flavour, Serradura Bouquet (an Oreo & Cheese-flavored Serradura Pudding in a pink rose bouquet), and Unicorn Cupcakes. And in case you’re wondering, cakes start at PHP1,999.
Bakebe is not your average baking studio. It’s an Insta-perfect baking wonderland with the most click-worthy interiors and fixtures—from a full-length mirror to a gigantic magnetic board to a flower wall with a pair of neon light wings.
The entire place is Instagrammable through and through, and if you’re a fan of the color pink, you’ll love the studio even more as it’s decked with all things pink—including their shelves, tables, and KitchenAid mixers! And not to mention, the baking projects in their lineup are super pretty, too!
