Bakers are employed by a variety of settings such as bakeries, hotels, restaurants and coffee shops. They make a huge array of foods including breads, pies, cakes, cookies and pastries. This is an artistic work as bakers do not only bake but decorate baked goods as well.
Depending on their individual place of employment, bakers contribute significantly in charting up an establishment’s dessert menu. They work closely with the management to decide what baked dessert items would attract patrons. Bakers are expected to know the many techniques that are used in modern baking. They measure ingredients to ensure the right quantity for each product and also kneed and cut dough. Bakers are expected to have a great attention to detail as they cannot possibly add or take out any ingredient once a product is put into the oven.
