How To Become... A Baker
By: Riley Feeney
Day to Day life of A Baker
A Baker’s morning starts early, sometimes even at 2:00 am, rolling and preparing dough for bread, croissants, etc. They will clean the baking sheets and ovens. Then finally around 9:00 am they will start mixing ingredients for cookies, pies, cupcakes, etc. Then they will put out the bread from earlier and decorate cookies and pies etc. When it’s around lunch they start making lunch time treats, just after the 12 pm kitchen clean. Then they start preparing ingredients for the next day and clean the kitchen AGAIN.
