I saw that a bakery/cake shop is opening in a few months around my house. They have a fb with pics of all their sweets. I can see that she's a pastry chef. Amazing plated desserts but lacking in cake decorating skills. I don't know if they are thinking about hiring somebody but i'm thinking of sending my resume along my some of my cake pics. I'm wondering if anybody who has hired somebody will give me a few pointers.
Thank you

I don't think I would send anything until finding out if they're hiring first.

oh, ok. Thanks icon_cry.gif Maybe I could go to the place, it's under construction, and stalk the owners icon_rolleyes.gif

You could call and ask if they're hiring or not?

Hearing,"No, thank-you, we're not hiring" is a lot easier to live with than saying "Dang it, why didn't I send in an application. I could of had the job"

Just go for it icon_smile.gif The worst they can say is no, after all. Might be worth posting this somewhere else if you're still not sure, as it's not really a 'cake disaster' ^^

Dependability.

Proficient icing skills.

Speed and accuracy with basic skills - piping, figure piping, writing, borders, and roses.

Willingness/open to be trained in their way with their methods.

I look for someone who will do it my way, not theirs. This goes for all of my businesses over the years.

can somebody tell me how to edit my original post? It's not showing the edit scissors that usually show on the right top side of post.

When the edit button disappears, you've lost the edit opportunity window of about four hours.
