Will be responsible for making a wide range of breads, pastries and other baked goods e.g black forrest cakes, muffins, dognuts, etc

A baker’s production duties include measuring and mixing ingredients into dough according to a recipe. Once the dough is formed, the baker will then roll and cut or otherwise shape the dough according to the specifications of the recipe. The final tasks in the production process involve baking the shaped dough and, if applicable, decorating the final product.

As bakers normally work according to tight production schedules, it is important for them to constantly check that the correct quantities are being produced for each order they are in charge of. It is also important for them to be vigilant about using exact measurements and paying strict attention to timing. In light of these facts, it is essential for a baker to stay organized and on top of his or her work at all times.

It is also helpful for a baker be innately creative, as many bakers are expected to come up with original recipes for new baked goods. Bakers are also often required to work alone; for this reason, the ability to be self-motivated is a huge advantage for aspiring bakers.

Of all the skills, knowledge and traits it is important for a baker to posses, the most important ones of all are a sound knowledge of hygiene and safety standards in the kitchen, and the discipline to enforce those standards.

Must have a minimum of 5 years experience of baking
