As a young girl, I would read the cookbooks that mum kept in the bottom kitchen drawer. As there was always flour, butter, milk, and eggs in the house, I was continuously searching for new recipes to bake. As a girl, I would make spend my weekend baking puff pastry to make tarts, creating new versions of candies and baking all the colour rainbow cakes. This is where I got my drive to make perfect French fruit flans. 

I now share this love of baking with you!

Together, we will make pastry from scratch – puff, rough puff, short crust, and choux. We will learn that gluten-free baking doesn’t mean sacrificing taste and that you can build your own box of lollies or a croquembouche!

My pastry classes are suitable for everyone – those who are qualified chefs, home cooks, those who do not usually cook or just for those who would like to experience what I bake day today. All my pastry classes include cooking, learning, eating and drinking.

If you like, I could design and hold a private pastry class, teaching you any pastry skills that you would like to learn for you and up to 8 guests. This includes macarons, dome desserts, pastry, tarts, lollies or any pastry skills you can think of.  For more information on arranging a private pastry cooking class, please contact Jacican.

Acknowledgment of country

Hello, I’m Jaci Hicken, from the lands of the Brataualung clan, which is where I’ve spent most of my life.
