F A Q

Why is this course better than YouTube videos?

Many YouTube videos are great, but there’s no one to help you if you experience any difficulties with the recipe.

This course provides you with tutors’ support, which means that they will help you during the dessert making and share all the life hacks they know.

Why is this online course better than offline classes?

Taking online course means you will make all the desserts at your own kitchen, with all the equipment and ingredients you can choose without haste, carefully considering prices and quality.

Moreover, you will see all the details from the first row! If you haven’t understood some points or have simply forgotten important details, you can replay video classes within 12 months from the start date.

Besides, you can ask your tutors all the questions that appear in your head during the whole course – not only during the class.

Choosing online course, you save time and energy as everything happens right at your place – no need to travel or delay other things on your agenda.

What do I need for the course?

Don’t worry, there are just a few key points:

  • Oven and baking pan
  • Sharp serrated knife (or just a large one)
  • Large and deep mixing bowl
  • Electric mixer (no less that 500 W)
  • Flexible spatula and whisk
  • Baking ring for sponge (around 16-18 cm in diameter)
  • Piping bag and tips

I will explain everything within the induction video class right before the start of the course. Some equipment is essential, but some things are optional. Don’t worry, you’ll get it.

I want to take the course, but the closest start date doesn’t suit me.

You can book the course now at a discounted price and start later, it’s totally fine. We will choose the most suitable date for you.

If you changed your mind about the course, we can make a refund. You have nothing to lose.

I live in a small town and we don’t have large grocery stores.

Please, don’t worry about it. We have a lot of students from very small towns across the world.

We totally understand that it may be hard to have all the necessary equipment for the course, but it’s always possible to order some equipment and ingredients online in advance. Moreover, delivery usually takes 2 weeks max, so we can pick a date that would suit you the most. Many of our students do that, no need to worry! Besides, you don’t need to have all the ingredients by the start of the course.

I’m not sure if I want to become a professional pastry chef. Should I take this course if this is just a hobby?

Of course! Many our students pursue baking as a hobby, and they are just happy with the progress they make within the course, while working as financial directors, business consultants, studying or taking care of kids.

You can rediscover who you are, explore new things in pastry and may even turn it into a profitable business one day.

I’m afraid I won’t be able to make it on the first try and will just waste food for nothing.

Don’t be! All the recipes have been tested multiple times, and text files and video classes are very detailed. Besides, our tutors will help you if something goes wrong – you will definitely be able to make spectacular desserts right away.

I’ve never taken online courses before. How does it work?

There’s nothing difficult! Basically, every Thursday you get a video class and text recipes with all the instructions about ingredients and equipment that you can access via our special learning platform. You upload your homework to the same platform, and our tutors check it.

Besides, we send you the link to our private WhatsApp chat for Pauline School students only. There you can send all the questions you have during the course, get pastry life hacks from our tutors and meet like-minded people from all over the world who are passionate about baking.
