7 Ways to Improve Your Baking Skills

Baking is fun and enjoyable. It gives you the scope to use your creativity at its best while making some of the most scrumptious delicacies. And there’s always something new to learn and improvise on in this field. It helps to have hands-on education and that’s exactly what we offer at Tedco Education. Our professional bakery courses in Delhi offer technical and practical insights that will help you excel as a professional baker. Baking is a complicated science that needs lots of skill, practice and patience. Here, we will go through 7 important tips that can help you improve your baking skills:

1. Measure Accurately

Remember, even a slight mistake in measuring ingredients for your baked item can make a major difference. As a professional baker, you must ensure your baking measurements are accurate by going for the spoon and level approach. This involves loading flour or any other ingredient into a cup with a spoon and leveling the extra on top. While doing this you must also ensure your measuring scales are perfectly calibrated.

2. Follow Recipes Religiously

Do not buy the idea of giving your own twist to a dessert recipe. Follow baking recipes religiously until you are skilled enough to make changes. Avoid substituting an ingredient for some other ingredient unless the recipe shows it acceptable.

3. Take a Professional Bakery Course

Why not take the professional bakery courses in India available at Tedco Education to improve your baking skills? You can enroll at our School of Bakery Arts or School of Culinary Arts where there are a plethora of courses available. These include:

  • Diploma in Bakery by Chef Sahil Mehta
  • Diploma in Culinary Arts

  • Certificate Course in Bakery
  • Online Hobby Chef Programs
  • Online Professional Chef Diploma

Our professional bakery courses can help you learn different baking techniques and build your confidence. They are also one of the best ways to meet and socialize with like-minded individuals. A good idea is to take our beginner classes first that will help you build and improve your baking skills from scratch.

4. Always Use Fresh Ingredients

Pay attention to chemical leavening agents, such as baking soda and baking powder as they lose effectiveness after six months, leaving you with baked items that do not rise the way they should. Also focus on spices, such as cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon because they lose their potency, especially when bought in pre-ground form.

5. Invest in Good Quality Baking Equipment

If you are really serious about excelling in the field of baking, make sure you have the best baking tools. Though there are hundreds of such tools available, it is best to have fewer but high quality and versatile accouterments, like: dry and liquid measuring spoons, wire whisk, rubber scraper, rolling pin and so on.

6. Practice, Practice and Practice

If you really want to improve your baking skills, you got to practice a lot. Bake for your family and friends; volunteer to bake at the local stores and try experimenting with several ingredients. This will perfect your craft and build your confidence.

7. Get Some Inspiration

Research online recipes; follow baking experts and food bloggers and listen to podcasts. This will help you learn everything you may have missed out earlier. To get more baking tips and advice, join baking communities. They can help you learn and grow as a professional baker.


Even when you follow these tips, baking the perfect dessert may still be challenging. However, you have nothing to fret as Tedco Education is here for all your baking requirements. Our Academy of Baking and Pastry Arts offers some of the best courses to improve your skills as a baker.
