I cook almost every day and baker a lot, even if I bring it to friends very often, because I simply bake too much. ;)
As a German, I am used to homemade food and I am sure there is a lot I can teach my students.

Teaching is more a hobby and pleasure for me than a side job. My students mostly have to remind me that the time is over and I have to let them go. ;)

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

Marcel is a great teacher, solved all my complicated issues and answered every question with advanced knowledge. He's patient and has a light humorous way of making you feel smart when you need it most!

I have worked in the pastry industry for 8 years now and have worked for companies, then eventually for myself. My students can expect a vast knowledge of recipes and icing techniques that will make for beautiful birthday and wedding cakes. You will learn about measurements, layering, fillings, cake and frosting recipes and shaping. Students must supply baking equipment.

I love to decorate cakes. With frosting,buttercream or fondant I can teach you how to create your favorite Disney characters or the beauty of flowers and embellishments on your cakes or cupcakes.

Stella is a wonderful teacher. What I had been unable to teach myself, she taught me in no time. Patient, thorough, funny, interactive and did I say patient? And in seconds, she knew my machine better than I. And who knows, I may decide to learn a new craft just so I can continue working with her.

I have been teaching dessert making for five years and have over twenty-five years in dessert making experience, including having consulted with restaurants and cookbook authors and staged at La Petite Rose in Paris. My students will be presented with very detailed information on baking equipment, ingredients, and methods, including information on the science behind baking -- all with hands-on experience. Detailed recipes are provided with each lesson. For cake decorating I focus on chocolate glazes and chocolate decoration.
