Tutor: Brigit Marx

German born pastry chef Brigit takes pride in her authentic homemade pastries, cakes, bread and waffles and combines her love and passion for baking with premium ingredients. It was a logical next step to develop from her beginnings, baking for family and friends, to leaving the corporate world of marketing behind, training at TAFE and opening her own business in the Eastern Suburbs, which she calls home since 2004. Sugarplum Bakery has grown in popularity since its start in 2010, and in 2019, Brigit was awarded a gold and bronze medal for two of her artisan breads at the Sydney Royal Fine Food Show.
