Pulling a freshly baked cake or a loaf of bread out of the oven is great and all, but honestly, all the effort you need to put into sourcing ingredients and washing all the equipment afterwards is almost enough to discourage us from the act of baking altogether! 

That being said, we’re not quitters, and with our work-smart-not-hard attitude, our laziness has propelled us into searching for the best baking studios in Hong Kong where you can experience all the fun of baking and none of the hassle and clean-up. You’re welcome!

Not only is Bakebe the most aesthetic studio in town, but it also teaches you to create confections with a unique, user-friendly app, guiding budding bakers through a project from start to finish with detailed instructions, graphics, videos, and a step-by-step guide.

If you haven’t heard, co-baking is the newest frenzy, and it’s honestly such a smart concept. Since you already have an app that leads you through the baking process, different groups of people can show up to the studio at different times and just do your own (baking) thing in your designated space without feeling limited. Of course, there will be specialists on hand if you’re ever struggling but the experience is also much more personal.

Try your hand at creating the signature offering, the Mermaid Atlantis Gem, a passionfruit cake crowned with a candied mermaid tail on top and lychee cream that mimics ocean waves, and be sure to snap loads of photos of Bakebe’s charming décor before calling it a day!

BYO Bake Your Own

We all know the term “BYOB” but what about BYO? BYO stands for Bake Your Own, and this cake studio leans on the co-baking concept as well. Book your slot online and choose your baking project of the day, whether its cheesecake or macarons.

When you arrive, you are armed with your own iPad for the day with a step-by-step video tutorial to follow. It’s a great bonding activity for friends and family, but people also rent out the venue for team building events, product launches, bridal showers, and corporate events!

We had a go at the five-inch double-layered cheesecake, a creation so fail-proof that even fools like us could master it. BYO also has a vegan series which guides you through delicious creations such as layered cakes, doughnut cake pops, crêpe cakes, mousse, and even a Viramisu.

Home Baking Day

Home Baking Day is another co-baking concept that migrated from Taiwan, famous for the pineapple puff made in the shape of the adorable yellow tropical fruit itself. Home Baking Day's recipes are all tried and tested and pretty much fail-proof, guaranteeing you will have something nice to bring home.

You also don’t have to worry about running out of ingredients and going to the supermarket because everything you could possibly need for baking is stocked in the studio. And the best part? You just have to put all your used equipment in a designated area and staff at the studio will help you do the washing-up.
