Baking Schools - Baking and Pastry Training

Baking Schools Baking schools, also known as pastry schools, are commonly a division within a larger culinary arts institute. Baking school students learn the art of baking breads, rolls, cakes and other pastries. Students may also learn cake decoration and molding techniques.

Baking schools offer the same basic core curriculum as other culinary arts programs. Courses in ingredient properties, food science and nutrition, management and business are all a part of a baking school education. Because some type of bread usually accompanies every meal, bakers are an important part of the culinary industry.

Employment for Baking School Graduates

Graduates from baking schools can expect to get jobs in a number of different capacities. Individuals with a degree or certification from a culinary arts or baking school may work in restaurants, hotels or bakeries. Baking school graduates may create the desserts for fine restaurants, work for catering companies or create the baked goods for large banquets. Many baking school graduates go into specialty baking, such as wedding cakes or artisan breads. Large food production companies also hire baking school graduates to oversee product development and quality control.

Career Outlook for Individuals with Baking School Training

Rather than bake bread at home, the majority of American households purchase their bread from grocery stores or bakeries. People are also opting to buy desserts and sweets rather than make them at home.

For this reason, bakers will continue to find jobs in their field. People are increasingly interested in artisan baked goods, meaning breads and rolls made by hand and baked in brick ovens. As this trend increases, individuals with baking school experience will find more and more job opportunities. For this reason, anyone interested in a baking career should look into getting a baking school education.
