I was thinking to call or write our local bakery and cake deocrating shop and ask them if they are looking for an intern to work with their cake decorator and helping with baking and decorating....and of course for free icon_biggrin.gif Their cake decorator was my first instructor and I took 2 courses with her. Should I ask her or the owner of the bakery?

I don't know is this too forward? or will they like someone to work for free for them? what do you think? Please help.....

I think it can't hurt to ask and you'll never know if you don't try. Worst they can say is no, right? Good luck!

It never hurts to ask BUT.....
Be prepared to be turned down. For a small business owner the insurance to hav e anyone else in the building is awfull! Not only do they want to almost dbl your business insurance, but then you have unemployment insurance & others I can't remember right now. When I had my shop I had many ask. I even had a gal come in a few times until I found out the cost involved. It's the same as hireing someone. It costs the business owner double what you pay the person. (Pay them $7 per hr - your insurances etc cost the same or more.)

Very interesting. I'm amazed at what goes on behind the scenes (almost on a daily basis). Things I'd never think about have huge implications.
