Professional Baking and Design

 

The Professional Baking and Design Program trains students in the fundamentals of professional baking. Students can complete the entire program and receive a certificate in Professional Baking and Design, or can complete certificates in either Professional Baking or 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 baking 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.
