"In Japan, we have a lot of students coming from Hong Kong to take our courses and some of them have already become tutors and started their own baking businesses. In Hong Kong, all of the courses will be taught by our Japanese instructors with an interpreter," she said.
"Hong Kong people love sweets. This place is the ideal location for us to expand our business in the region," she added.
Established in 2013, the Japan Salonaise Association aims to support students to create their bakery careers by taking its courses.
