My Little Job, A day in the Life of Assistant Pastry Cook
So Fridays are the day I always work, which can be slightly annoying. Well because you guys are like T.G.I.F, and I’m like I need Saturday right now! It is really not that bad. I just, well I think we all get the feeling of not wanting to go to work. I would much prefer to stay in my comfy bed!!! So off to my little job.
So today being a Friday, I went off to work, in a my actually pretty cool workplace, the problem is that it is about an hour by train! I finally made it in, and that’s when the feeling of I don’t want work kinda leaves and I’m all of sudden happy to do the job. My job is also one of the coolest jobs for a 16 year old, I basically spend my day icing cakes, and who wouldn’t want to do that. I could ice cakes for ages and ages, and when I get bored of one, all I have to do is stick that one in freezer to chill, and I can start another. See it’s a pretty cool thing to do. Also as the place I ice cakes for, does lots and lots, there is always plenty of ganache and buttercream, and you never have not enough!
So today’s tasks, at my nearly dream job, was to ice 5 different kinds of cake, which eventually equaled to me icing 12 of them! Yep 12 cakes, lets just say that got me though my whole day and more. The cakes I iced today were mainly chocolate based, but I did do a few red velvets too. I really wish I had some pictures, because now that I have been doing it for a few weeks, they actually look really good and professional. My mentor-supervisor-personmbob is incredible to watch, and today she told me my red velvets were beautiful, I was extremely happy. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face, and to be honest with you, I’m still smiling now too.
So my day in life of Assistant Pastry Cook is pretty good life, don’t you think
