Applying to be a cake decorator . I just need this job badly and I don't want to screw it up. If this helps, I have about 16 years of experience and went to school for cake decorating and ect.
I had 1 interview for a cake decorator position and they called to set up a "cake decorator test" where they test my skills. What should i expect? What will i have to do? I dont have actual employed experience as a cake deorator. Its a passion of mine though and i really want this job to get my career started.
For a project of mine in school we have to write an essay on our dream job. And my dream job is to be a cake decorator! Part of the essay is how we would become what we want to be so what sort of classes would i take? I'm pretty sure I have to go to chef school. Would I have to go other places like, art school?
How do I go about getting a job as a cake decorator? Getting some sort of a degree in Bakery/Pastry?? Anyone been down the road?
This is a career change for me.
I've been looking up some research on the baking industry and found nothing. What are most common types of jobs with baking or cakes. How hard is it to become a professional cake decorator and which jobs have the highest demand or more salary? :D
I recently read that there was a position at my local Wal Mart for a Cake Decorator. I am an experienced cake decorator, but I am only 16. I live in Michigan if that helps any, because I know laws for working minors are different state to state. Thank you.
I want to be a cake decorator.
I live in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
What is the difference between a cake decorator and a pastry chef?
Is there an apprenticeship for a cake decorator or should I do an apprenticeship as a pastry chef and just look for work in bakery's that specialize in cake decorating?
How long is a pastry chef apprenticeship?
Do I have to do a pre apprenticeship?
I would love to learn to be a cake decorator. It's the one thing I think I would be good at. However, I can't afford to go to a culinary school.
Would Cake decorators be willing to apprentice me? And can I get paid for that?
OR, does anyone know of any personal classes in LA/ San Pedro CA area that I can take to learn?
ALSO, when hiring, would people take into account that I didn't go to school?
This is for people who are or were professional or grocery store cake decorators.
Being a pastry chef, specifically a cake decorator is my DREAM job. BUT- im a bit skeptical because i don't think they make enough money to be comfortable. I don't want big money or anything, just enough to not be scraping by.
Besides opening your own Business, where would you typically get a job as a pastry Chef?
I am a Culinary Arts Graduate and am currently working as a baker. This isn't my ideal job but I am working in a grocery store bakery. The reason for it is because I have applied for higher volume, classy and fancy bakeries, however, I'll get interviewed but no job offer and the reason being is because I haven't had years plus experience in bakeries. My ideal Job is to become a pastry chef or a cake decorator but until then I will need to get all the experience I can get before becoming one of them. Anyways I have been made of fun because I am working at a grocery bakery but hey this is only experience and it's one step Closer to becoming a pastry chef or cake decorator. Also how do I get the experience if one is willing to hire me or give me the training I need and not only that but in my field they don't care about education or having a degree they want experience. So between me having a degree and someone who didn't go to school for culinary just experience ...who's more like to get the job? The person who has experience. Now my question to you. What do I do in a situation? I hate telling ppl im working at a grocery bakery because that look down on me. I hate it when they ask me so where are you working and what's The name of the place. Please help im feeling hurt and confused and don't know what to do. :'(

I am staying for a few months in Norway on tourist visa while looking for work in Norway. I have 10+ years as cake decorator/baker and 2+ years as a drafter and was wondering a good place to start with finding work. I will be staying there in starting July and have been applying online with no luck. I have applied on UDI's site and many others as well. I found the woman of my dreams and want to marry and live there with her. She doesn't make enough for us to qualify for a fiance visa and it will be a legal nightmare to bring her here. Any help would be appreciated and giving up is not an option.
I've been making cakes for years.Comparable to the cakes you see on those shows like cake wars or the cake boss,just on a smaller scale. I've never had any schooling or formal training.
I am in love with baking and I would love to become a professional cake decorator. But with this hard economic situation, I don't know how successful starting a business in a small town in Illinois would be. Where would be a good place in Illinois to start a business? Preferably in a small town, nowhere like Chicago or Champaign. Or should I just forget the whole idea?
I am a very talented Baker,Pastry cook,Cake Decorator and want a job bad i have 25 years experience. Im finding it very hard to find work and have the best work ethic's. I also have great attention to detail.
I'm a junior in high school. Now that this school year is slowly reaching it's end, I find that I really have to start thinking about college and what majors are in my line of view. The one thing that I really am passionate about is cooking. My whole family tells me that I should become a restaurant owner or pastry chef. Literally, I have no other talents ha. It would be fantastic to do something like this for the rest of my life. I understand that many students don't realize their perfect career choice until later in life, but lack of a college fund deprives me of that luxury.
So these are my main questions:
How can I actually make money and support myself off of a career in cooking?
What is the right type of chef to pursue in for a maximum profit? (i.e. executive chef; restaurant owner; cake decorator)
Will I require a culinary degree, or should I work my way up from the bottom? (maybe both?)
Feel free to crush my dreams and tell me to "get real". Any personal experience would be greatly appreciated (:
Just wondering how many bakers, cake decorators and bread bakers bake from home for profit, operating little sign jobs that bring in a fare share of income? Just wondering...
