I have always had a passion for baking and I have already attended culinary school. I am trying to decide if it would be a good idea to go to school for baking... is it worth it? would it be better to just get a job at a bakery and learn from there or go to school first?

AIt depends on what your ultimate goal is and what you know now. Do you just want to learn about baking? Do you want to be a Pastry Chef? Do you want to have a cake business?

I want to know everything there is to know about baking and pastry (: I want to be able to decorate cakes, cupcakes, and make amazing yummy treats with confidence, long term I dream of having my own bakery I am just not sure which path to take to get there.

one of the cool things about baking/decorating is you can do it in your kitchen all day long -- if you want the rounded out knowledge of all things pastry school -- get a text book from a pastry school curriculum and have at it -- grab your favorite cookbook or get your favorite recipe online -- nothing in your way -- one step at a time -- 

 

pastry school would be a blast i'm sure but it's optional

Great advice K8 your own kitchen is the one place to play without anyone knowing the mistakes and having fun into the bargain.

Classes would be great too I just never had time to take any when the kids were small.

You go for it cupcakewarrior if its something you really want to do.
