You will need to complete an apprenticeship in breadmaking, baking or pastry cooking under the New Apprenticeship scheme to become a qualified baker or pastry chef. Currently 40% of those in the industry have certificate II or IV and 6% have certificate I or II. Although 48% have no post school qualification it is recommended that further study be undertaken to be competitive within the industry. TAFE SA offers courses that may help you to remain competitive. Courses listed on the TAFE SA website under Hospitality or Food Processing & Wine will provide you with the necessary education and training information for this and related careers.

Well for one, being a pastry chef does not require very much education so if you do not end up becoming a pastry chef then you do not have an education to fall back on. This means you will have to go back to college to get your degree. Also it costs a lot of money to start your own bakery and if it does not work out then you are kind of out of luck. Finally, if you are not looking to open up your own bakery and just want be hired, pastry chefs are not really in high demand and it may be hard for you to find somewhere that is willing to hire.

If you are a beginning pastry chef it will be very difficult to make any kind of decent wage. It is generally better to start as a side business and see if you are able to grow from there.

You can become a chef by attending a culinary school and/or working as an apprentice for a chef in a restaurant. Chefs often work at several restaurants getting experience under different mentors before they choose a specialty.

Pastry chefs are responsible for creating delicious treats, desserts, confections, and baked goods. Their creations usually come from recipes from established executive pastry chefs or by a client's request. Pastry chefs can get creative and decorate their creations with edible ornamentation. For these sugar paste, icing, cream bags, and spatulas among other tools are used to whip their ornaments into shape. Pastry chefs aren't just responsible for creating delectable confections, they are also responsible for making sure that what they make is uniform and meet quality standards. They also strive for guest satisfaction. Creativity and innovation are excellent tools for a pastry chef to have. As a pastry chef you will work in a modern and well-equipped work area. You'll have plenty of space and assistance to help prepare each unique specialty. Alternatively, you might have to work in a tight and cramped space with aged equipment. Working in this kind of work environment might not be a bad idea as it will challenge you creatively and you'll gain experience as well. A pastry chef must have a great deal of patience, attention to detail, precision and dexterity as some decorating tasks will require a great deal of intricate detail and knowledge of proper temperature preparation. Long hours in sweltering conditions may have to be endured as well as burns. Training to become a pastry chef can vary according to your specialty. You may choose to attend formal or a vocational institution from either one to four years. The shorter programs make it possible for pastry chefs to enter into lower positions like Chef Assistants, but in order to become a full-fledged pastry chef you'll have to gain either experience or receive more education. As a great deal of two to four year programs also include internships, those that do have advanced degrees will have the option of entering more advanced positions with ease since they posses more experience. The starting salary for a pastry chef is about $17,000. Those that are well-rehearsed in their craft can expect to many anywhere from $30,000 to $50,000 a year. Those pastry chefs that open their own successful bakeries have the greatest chance to earn a higher salary.
