Professional Baking and Design

 

The Professional Baker program trains students in the fundamentals of professional baking. Students can complete the entire program and receive a certificate as a Professional Baker.  Students can also complete our continuing education program in Cake Decorating.

The cake decorating curriculum gives students instruction to skillfully express their creativity. It consists of hands-on training, beginning with basic decorating techniques and progressing to the elaborate skills necessary to complete a beautifully decorated wedding cake. 

The professional baker curriculum provides training for those who wish to enter this dynamic segment of the food service industry; specialty bake shops, supermarkets, discount chains and delicatessens are all expanding into the “hot bakery” field.
