HI! My name is Nadilyn, I live in Sacramento, CA and I want to become a cake decorator more than anything. I would love to work for someone who would be willing to teach. I have been self taught and no one will hire someone without any formal training. I can work part time nights and all week ends, if you need someone full time I will quit my job and work for you. I still have bills.... so I can't work for free, I would if I could but, you know. I have pictures of my work if you would like to see and I would be happy to get a response back from anyone looking for assistants! Thanks for reading Love to hear back from anyone!
Good luck. It is not practical to have anyone work in a bakery unless they are paid employee. That means whatever they pay you will double w/the 'fees' the employer has to pay (unemployment taxes etc).
It also their b usiness insurance will double. It is very costly for a business owner to take anyone on. There is no way around these charges.
You may start as an "icer" somewhere. You'll have to learn to be fast and do the basics before they're going to let you do anything else.
You'll have much more luck asking someone for this kind of position than asking someone to teach you (especially for free.)
I hope you find what you are looking for. All I can say is practice, practice, practice. Look for opportunities to give someone a free cake so you can hone your skills. Good luck
