Baking classes in East London

If you know Quraisha Bassa-Peer, you’ll know she’s always in the kitchen making something sweet and scrumptious to eat!! In fact, she’s loved baking since she was able to lift the beater and hold it suspended off the kitchen counter!

Jokes aside, Quraisha has decided to make right a great injustice in the East London and King William’s Town area by offering classes ranging from cake and biscuit-making and also, exotic sweets and deserts. Learn how to make marshmallows, almond rocha, crunchies, truffles, mocktails, pastas, and so much more! She’s already had her first biscuit-making class for young girls and it was welcomed with great enthusiasm! She had 12 students on day one! Clearly, she is a very skilled woman (with a very lucky husband and extended family -which includes me, thankfully!) Anyone who’s tasted her fancies can bear testament to this as she has been known to transform into the family baker on occasion, saving the day with her divine delights!

What better job is there in the world than to do what you love, and to teach your skills to those who love what you do!

A quick and easy recipe if you’ve got the munchies for something sweet, with compliments from Q’s Kitchen:
