Malaysian pastry is somewhat different from other pastry find elsewhere in the world. However, the basic methodology to make and bake them are still the same. Knowing Malaysian cooks who are always creative, karipap has many versions. Epok-epok and karipap pusing are examples of karipap. The filling variety is also endless but the most popular is spicy curry potato with chicken or beef. Karipap falls under short crust pastry. This is why Malaysian culture has adopted a variety of cuisines, with many varieties and borrowings from other cultures.

A typical day in the life of a baking student includes lectures and seminars, followed by lab sessions where get to enhance skills to the test in the kitchen. Many baking degrees also require that students either get practical experience outside of the classroom through internships or work experience. This aspect is especially important if studying food science abroad, as it helps grow a professional network internationally, and increases chances of being able to stay in host country after graduation. Employers love a resume that has both study abroad and internship experience. So, the combination of the two is bound to set out from the crowd of candidates and score the interview. And always be mindful that a comprehensive pastry education might comprise only one facet of complete cooking education.

The Diploma in Pastry and Bakery programme equips the student with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills which focuses on the art and science of baking.
