Attention all amateur bakers! Hidden Truffles is very excited to announce that this September Umami Concepts, in collaboration with The Rose Petal Cakery, are calling on all amateur bakers to apply for the 2014 Battle ofthe Bakers.

Battle of the Bakers will be a friendly competition intended to offer aspiring amateur bakers the chance to hone their skills and gain the confidence needed to take a passion for their craft to the next level.

 Each week participants will have the opportunity to train in some of Hong Kongs best kitchens and learn new techniques from our specialized chefs. During the 7-week period we will be teaching and providing hands on knowledge of a number of skills, ranging from the delicate art of crafting a French macaroon to acquiring the finesse needed to roll and decorate with fondant. At the end of each week participants will be able to practice and perfect their skills and then develop their own creation, which they will share with the group. Each week one or more contestants will reach the end of their baking journey with us until our grand finale Christmas event.

 If you, a family member, friend or colleague have a passion for baking and would like to develop new techniques and expand your baking repertoire we would love to hear from you. We are inviting those with an appreciation for all things baking to sign up via the websitewww.battleofthebakershk.com by Saturday 27th September.

The experience will run on Saturdays from October to December.

Further details are available on the website.
