Can someone with no experience in cooking become a pastry chef?

I want to become a pastry chef but have experience in cooking. I've seen a lot of people learning how to cook at a young age. Probably starting from grade school. Is it to late to start learning and still be successful in the culinary world? I'm in my last year of high school ready.

Try applying for jobs at your local bakeries and let them know what your intentions are. I took cooking and culinary classes at our local technical college while in my last 2 years of high school.

It's never too late to learn anything. If that's what you want to do, then do it.

Never too late. I'm not really sure how you know you want to be a pastry chef if you have no experience cooking, but hey. Take some cooking classes, even if they're just whatever they have down at the community center, just to make sure you like it. Then enroll in a culinary school.

it's never too late to learn how to please yours' and others' stomachs. but hon, I hope you know it's one of the toughest jobs in the world, especially pastry chef. the difference with cooking and baking deserts are, you can almost alway correct a cooked dish unless you've burnt it completely. but not baked goods...
