I am interesting in becoming a pastry chef. how do i start?

Like working in hotels or country clubs or catering making pastries, wedding cakes, and bakery items and such. how do you get started in that field? are there decent jobs? were are the best places to work? Is it totally dumb? i dont want to end up homeless and unemployed. Do you need college for that and if so like what would you take? are there any pastry chefs out there?
