What would a typical day look like as a baker's assistant?

I am 20 years old and want to make a career in Baking or Pastry Arts. I enjoy baking for my friends and family and seeing the enjoyment when everyone tries my desserts. I'll like to start as a baker's assistant or something similar to that, so I'm able to get more experience before I branch off and start my own business.

The main thing you probably will be doing is a lot of prepping and doing basic needs for the day. For example, when you are making cakes and small pies or such, you will be the one mixing ingredients and washing dishes and making small pastries. etc.. if you want to be in that field do the research. There's nothing more important than doing your research for anything you are interested in.
Best of luck!

Hi Saul'Dia,

To answer your question,
What would a typical day look like as a baker's assistant?
Normally baker and baking assistants' day would start at about 4 am. You would do some prepping and make bread and cakes under the watchful eye of the baker. Your day would end somewhere around 4 or 5 pm. The baking assistant would also do the washing of the utensils and learn step by step how to create whatever the product for the day is. You could learn how to create spun sugar, make a Pate a Choux, or other things of that nature.
