Pastry cooks prepare, bake and decorate pastries, cakes and other dough or pastry-based confectioneries. They consult recipes in order to plan their products, or may make cakes and other pastry-goods to order. They weigh and measure ingredients, combine them, shape baking mixtures, bake them in ovens, and glaze or decorate them using icing, cream, custard, jam or fruit. They may also make savoury pastries that use cheese, salt or other savoury food products. Pastry cooks also clean ovens and cooking equipment, order baking supplies and serve customers. Pastry cooks work all over the state, from pastry shops in cities and towns to airports, mining facilities or factories.
