Sweet Surrender Dessert Cafe
Sweet Surrender Dessert Cafe is seeking a full time, experienced, cake decorator/wedding cake designer. We are a high volume bakery, looking for someone creative and efficient to help with our special order cakes, wedding cakes, and day to day happenings.
Applicants must have decorating experience and a minimum of 2 years experience in a commercial kitchen. An up to date portfolio of your work is required. Sweet Surrender works primarily with buttercream decorated cakes, rather than fondant, so examples of your buttercream flat-icing and decorating should be included. However, you should be proficient in fondant decorating as well. Some of the other things we would like to see in your portfolio include decorated tiered cakes, wedding cakes, and carved 3D cakes. During the interview process, you may be asked to complete several standard decorating tasks on site.
Though this position is for a decorator, some from scratch making may also be required during slow decorating seasons.
Candidates for this position should also have the following skills:
-Creativity in Cake design
-Ability to flat ice a cake
-Strong work ethic
-Skill with covering cakes in fondant
-Ability to learn quickly
-Detail oriented mindset
-Strong organizational skills
-Time management & multi-tasking skills
-Ability to execute from scratch recipes consistently and efficiently
-Willingness to receive direction and constructive criticism
Sweet Surrender is open Tuesday through Saturday with the occasional Sunday required for special events and weddings. This position is for a 9am to 5pm shift, with occasional adjustments to allow for wedding cake deliveries.
We assume from your application that you have the ability to withstand the physical rigors (such as lifting, standing for long periods) that are part of any bakery job.
Please email a copy of your resume and a cover letter as a word file, .pdf, or pasted into the body of an email. A link to your online portfolio should be included in your resume. We encourage you to attach photos of your work to your application if no online portfolio is available.
