Baking and pastry arts
Do you dream of working in the baking industry?
Located just north of Seattle, the Baking and Pastry Arts program at Edmonds CC prepares students for a career in the baking industry. Students can choose to earn the one-year Baking Certificate or the two-year Associate of Technical Arts (ATA) Baking Degree.
Students will learn important foundational skills, such as entremet, specialty cakes, plated desserts, tarts, petit fours, French pastries, artisan breads and viennoiserie.
Those who choose to earn our two-year ATA Baking Degree will have an opportunity to learn at a more advanced level. In addition to extensive chocolate work and confectionery, degree students will experience what it's like to design and decorate a tiered wedding cake and create an intricate edible showpiece. Degree students will also fulfill the role of purchaser, bakery manager and sous chef.
Our Baking and Pastry Arts chef instructors have 40 years combined industry experience. Chef Bonnie Lyons specializes in gumpaste art, edible showpieces and wedding cakes; Chef Karen Jenkins specializes in breads, confectionery and chocolate work.
