About IBCA

The Institute of Baking and Cake Art was started in 2000 by Mr.M.K.Gaur and Manish Gaur.Mr. M K. Gaur has 38 years of experience managing the Bakery Training Unit at the University of Agricultural Sciences in Bangalore. Manish Gaur was teaching at The Institute of Hotel Management & Catering, Bangalore where his specific focus was on baking.

The idea behind starting a specialized institute was to offer a learning space to experience the simple art of baking and address domestic needs and commercial requirements. India per se does not have an exclusive culinary school, our institution is one of its kind in terms of the specialized training across different levels in baking. We found that most of the catering colleges offered training modules that were recipe oriented with only practical training.

Our institution was started to share the knowledge of  the why’s and how ‘s of baking through theoretical and practical expertise. We started with a modest beginning by introducing 4 basic baking courses – breads, biscuits, cakes/pasteries and home baking course and 2 teachers. These courses gained immense popularity in terms of their content and imparting of basic knowledge of baking. This prompted our growth and movement to  larger premises with better facilities and 9 courses and 7 teachers.

In 2005, we took charge of a commercial bakery, naming it Caramel and apart from it being our retail outlet, Caramel served as an excellent platform for our students to gain baking experience, it is at this juncture that saw the introduction of the 14 week Diploma in Baking, Confectionery and Cake Art. Our effectiveness lay in the sharing of knowledge in our teaching modules which contributed greatly towards our steady success and building the confidence of the student so as to enable her / him to branch out on her own and specializing in her own patisserie.  

Our motto is to grow with an information base in Baking and Confectionery. We aim to be a service provider for all domestic and commercial requirements. We aspire to create a space for progressive sharing and learning of knowledge and research in the world of baking. We are intrinsically different. Our prime focus is on Baking and Confectionery.
