I Dont know how or where I can star...I owned a small cake shop in Ecuador a couple months ago.

But my housband decided to came in here CA. Becacuse is safety.


I need to find a job decorating cakes!...I loved! and I cannot image to myself do something different. I know I can not to start a business in here, so I plannig to send resumes to the local bakeries.


Always I worked with local products...I have skills decorating..but never I try to bake with the ingredients from I fell really insecure.


So I Dont now how can to explain that in my future interview...I think can be sound unprofessional : /


My question is...Do you thinks in some cake shop hired people with skills in decoration and modeling sugar paste even if they don't know bake will the products from here?


Thanks yoy for you future advise...

Hope u can understand my english ; )

AIt will help if you have pictures of cakes you've done to show in the interview. All the best.

Try to find the bigger bakeries in your area. The bigger ones usually have dedicated decorators and someone else does the baking.

AHave you tried looking for bakeries that specialize in the kind of cake you are used to making? There are so many people from all over the world in this country, and we all want a taste of home now and again. You might also try your local ethnic grocery stores, they often have a lot of customers that want cakes decorated like they are at home.

I truly understand you because I just moved to USA from Italy, 3 months ago!

I had my little business from home and when i moved I was so worried..

but, FIRST OF ALL be confident!

u need a portfolio with the pics of all your cakes and desserts so you can show what you can do.

Second, start baking at home! 

I am sure you will find a job soon!


I didnt attend any professional pastry school in Italy, but I found a job after 1month I was here.. and now I am the pastry chef of a nice restaurant downtown my city.

Don't give up!

I have neighbors in South Carolina that are from Guatemala  and they bought a tres leche cake which is from their native country. I loved it!!! You can probably get all ingredients here in the USA that you can get in Ecuador. My neighbors say they have several bakeries here that make nothing but their kind of desserts. I fell in love with the tres leche cake and now I sometimes make them at home. I am sure that if you owned your own cake shop you will have no problem here with working. Like the others said have pictures of your cakes to show. Good luck!!!
