Baker » Overview


Bakers prepare, bake and decorate bread, rolls, pastries, cakes and other yeast goods. They follow recipes and alter ingredient quantities as needed. They mix together and measure ingredients and create interesting baked goods. They might use commercial baking equipment or work at home using their own kitchen appliances. They may work for a company or run their own business from home.

Bakers enjoy working with food and coming up with new recipes. They often have to start early in the morning, so that there is fresh bread for people to buy at the start of the day. They usually work indoors, alongside other kitchen staff and salespeople.
