Baking &Pastry

I want to make my passion my career.

96 Mercedes E320 Transmission Wiring Diagram It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t like dessert. It’s not easy to find someone who has the talent, passion, and imagination to turn desserts into works of art. This is serious stuff—especially in a culinary industry that grows more competitive and demanding every day. It’s why restaurants often call on the creativity of pastry chefs and bakers to help give them an edge. If you’re ready to put your talents to the test, the place to start is our Dallas Baking & Pastry programs. While you’ll focus on the pastry arts, we will provide a well-rounded education—from plating a dessert to preparing confections to managing a commercial kitchen. You’ll be surrounded and inspired by other talented, creatively driven students. And you’ll be pushed, challenged, and, above all else, supported by experienced faculty* who want to help you find your place in the world.
