Volunteer in Canada as a baker – requirements and tasks

Amanda bakes all sorts of treats, although she specializes in Royal Icing decorated sugar cookies. They have endless possibilities for the icing design, icing consistency, the cookie base “crumb” (how crumbly or smooth it is when bitten into), ink-print lettering, and more!

You will work for about 3-5 hours a day, an average of 23 hours a week. During business hours you will answer phone calls, arrange deliveries, keep count of inventory, etc. After business hours you will help in the kitchen, with time devoted to cleaning afterwards. It is also appreciated if you’re good with computers and digital design!

You should be comfortable with working in a fast-paced environment, tidy, organized, and able to maintain a clean kitchen space 🙂

Volunteer in Canada as a baker – what we offer?

Amanda will teach you the techniques for piping, icing thickening/thinning, glazing, what type of mixer to use, ingredient substitution, etc. You’ll get your own cookies and cakes to design and practice your skills.

For your help you will get a private room and full board.

The bakery is located in Brantford, Canada, not far from Toronto so you will have an opportunity to explore.
