Cape Town: Lindt Chocolate Baking Course


I think we can all come to an agreement that Lindt has some incredible, sweet goodies that make it hard to stay loyal to a healthy lifestyle.

Recently my boyfriend surprised me with a LINDT BAKING COURSE and from that moment I realized there is no use in trying to deny the inevitable... diets are not for me, chocolate is and so is this baking course!

Lindt only has a few baking courses in the world and conveniently enough one of them was only a stone throw away from our flat in Cape Town!

I don’t want to spoil the experience too much but when you get there, they provide you with an apron and a chefs hat! Yes, it is amazing and yes, you do feel like you are about to be casted for Master Chef.

We did the Master’s Class: CUPCAKE COURSE!

We made Red Velvet Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and Chocolate Cupcakes with chocolate frosting.

* Not going to lie, the Red Velvet cupcakes we made were hands down the best Red Velvet cupcakes I have ever tasted * BIG STATEMENT

I thought I had it all figured out when it came to cupcakes but little did I know there is a whole science behind baking.

They explain everything to you, even down to the nitty gritty on how to stir the ingredients, why you add the ingredients in the specified order, how to get the exact texture you want and how to avoid bubbles in your cupcakes. It is really, really cool and super interesting!

This is definitely an activity for anyone! We both really, really enjoyed it and loved having cupcakes to share with family and friends!

If cupcakes aren’t your thing (weirdo) they also have a macaroon and cake baking course which I look forward to taking part in as soon as possible!

If you’ve been or decide to go because of this post please let me know what you think of it! :)

Thanks for taking time to read my blog post! I hope you find value in it! If you're new to seeing my content, Hi my name is Mariah! I love sharing my take on fashion, travel, beauty, lifestyle, relationships, bridal and more!

I have been writing + creating photo/video content since I was about 12 years old (2007) - never in my wildest dreams thinking I could be doing this as a full time job 10 years down the road.

I moved to South Africa shortly after meeting my husband and we got married 5 years later (2020)! We often travel back and forth between Florida, USA and Cape Town, South Africa - both of them home to us.

I have two puppies, Chai + Bentley. And I hope to be telling you about children some day soon!

Until then, I will keep sharing my current passions, tips + tricks, thoughts + tools for life! The adventure continues....!
