Part Time

Level 3 and above

About the Role

You would make baked goods for customers in shops and supermarkets. Or you’d bake and sell your hand-made products in a small craft bakery or delicatessen.

As well as bread and rolls, you’d make other items such as pastries, pies, cakes and biscuits. You’d also decorate and fill them with cream, fruit, jam or icing so they look appetising and taste delicious.

You would:

  • Weigh out the ingredients

  • Mix the ingredients according to the recipe

  • Work out cooking times

  • Shape the individual products

  • Bake the goods in ovens

Once they are baked you would get them ready to put on display and sell. You would decorate cakes and pastries, and wrap and label the products.

You’d need to order supplies to ensure you have enough ingredients to make everything you need.

You could also experiment with ingredients and recipes to create new products for customers to enjoy. You’d need to meet hygiene, and health and safety standards.
