Cake Decorator Jobs
Cake Decorator Overview
Cake decorator jobs require many of the same skills and abilities that bakers have. Cake decorators are responsible for decorating the cakes needed for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and other special occasions. While some bakers work in grocery stores, others work for specialty cake shops and bakeries. Some cake decorators also run their own businesses and decorate cakes from home or from a dedicated shop. They talk with clients about what type of decorations they want on their finished cakes, and they decorate those cakes with frosting and edible and inedible decorations. Cake decorators also typically have the skills necessary to work as bakers, cooks and pastry chefs.
Cake Decorator Education Requirements
Bakers typically work late at night and early in the day when the shop is free from customers, but cake decorators can work throughout the day. Though some decorators receive formal training from a college or culinary institute, other decorators learn on the job or when they apprentice with a trained baker or decorator. Though they do not need formal training, they do need to know how to use pastry brushes and bags. They also need to know how to use different tips to create different decorations, how to work with fondant and frosting and how to add decorations without damaging the structure of the cake. Strong customer service skills are also necessary for the position.
Cake Decorator Job Market
According to statistics, the number of cake decorator jobs available in the future will increase at a rate of 6 percent, which is slower than the rate of growth in other fields. There were 167,700 bakers working across the country in 2012, and by 2022, there will be 9,400 new baking jobs available. While not all decorators have experience baking or enjoy working as bakers, the demand for workers capable of performing two or more jobs will increase in future years. Many bakeries only hire decorators who can also create cakes and other desserts for customers.
Cake Decorator Salary
Cake decorators make an average wage of $8 to $15 per hour. Some bakeries allow decorators to accept tips from customers happy with their finished cakes.
