Baking and decorating should be fun!
Achieving the result you want shouldn't be stressful.
How good does it feel when we hear
"wow, did you make that!?"
Adelaide Bakes Academy was created to give you ease:
The recipes and techniques you want to learn,
A community to inspire and cheer you on
Support from me
so you get the best results from your baking.
You know how frustrating it is when the recipe Just. Doesn't. Work.
It's incredibly deflating
Trust me, we've all been there
Do you know there are 4 stages to becoming a great baker?
having the right equipment
We don't all need the biggest and best equipment to achieve great results. I'm a big believer of smart baking - using what you already have and adding in only what you need depending on the baking you actually do.
understanding the ingredients
Great baking isn't just about the recipe! Understanding the function of ingredients is important to know how making adjustments will change the end result and how to adjust recipes to create the flavours and textures you like.
understanding the methods
Understanding a variety of methods allows you to make the right choice based on the time you have available, your level of confidence and the result you're looking for.
using the right recipes
Not all recipes are created equal. Using recipes that have been tried and tested to give consistent results will take the stress out of baking because you know you'll achieve the outcomes you want!

Hey! I'm Maggie,
Mum of 2 crazy kidlets , baker and teacher of all things delicious.
Adelaide Bakes was born in 2016 after the birth of my son because I wanted to teach the skills, techniques and recipes that I'd spent the previous 12 years perfecting.
I had no idea I would find my absolute passion in teaching and mentoring bakers!
After 4 years of teaching hands on classes to hundreds of students I knew it was time to move online, to reach more amazing bakers, to share my knowledge and skills and impart my passion for the baking industry on those who are just coming in.
Adelaide Bakes Academy is where I blend the best recipes, techniques and passion for teaching from my hands on classes with the ability to create the best and most supportive baking community from around the world.
My greatest goal is to inspire and encourage bakers of all levels to try new techniques and impact and support those who are in the business of baking to maintain high standards in the industry.
Here's what some of my members have to say!
Candice, Baked by Candice
Your sugar cookie recipe is definitely the best around! And your carrot cake!
My skills have improved 100%,
the Academy and the BBB sessions are amazing and fill in all the questions I've had. The tips and advice Maggie offers are tried and tested
The best vanilla cupcakes!I have tried so many but have found it difficult to find one that isn’t dry and/or stale after the first day. Yours are so moist and still fresh for as long as they last before they’re all eaten
Maggies deliciously perfect caramel mudcake (white choc smbc fill) and a mix of milk and dark choc mudcake (dark choc smbc fill) both were super moist!!! A truely amazingly lipsmacking tastypiece!! Thankyou so very much - def going into my faves collection
