I know there is a place where your maid can learn baking.

I have bought some baking forms there, they also offer baking courses.

Some maids wont mind taking up a baking/cooking classes as they want to enhance their culinary skills.
But how about maids who wants to pursue their education so they can find a decent job in the future and graduate from being a helper.
I personally wont recommend baking, cooking or hairdressing classes but i would rather recommend maids who did not finish their education ( as they need to work to help out the family) to continue and pursue it.
Maids specially from the Philippines are either college undergraduate or graduates but coudnt get a decent paying job at home.

Helpers are labeled as a low class people and badly scrutinized by some.
But people should understand that not all are stupid and hopeless.

Some of them are educated with degrees and still stupid. Like the ones with degrees who get married to a local without asking MOM for permission. :roll:
