Pastry Extern

Saint Peter's Bakery

I am learning how to be adaptable, how to multi-task, and how to problem solve on my feet while being as efficient and creative as possible. I am learning to do a task with a few movements as possible, in the quickest time possible while producing a top-quality item. I bake lots of cookies, cakes, cupcakes, and I do finishing work on desserts and pastries. Plating desserts for customers who are ordering in is one of my favorite tasks. Production is my strong point, followed by my creative imagination.
