    Are you ready to turn your passion for baking into a career? If you love spending time in the kitchen perfecting cakes and pastries, then our one-year baking certificate is the next step to take you to the professional level.

    Experience or not, you will learn the ins and outs of the modern bakery from production of breads and doughnuts to cookies and specialty cakes. Learn from and work alongside some of the region’s top pastry chefs in our Inland Northwest Culinary Academy. 

    You’ll leave this program knowing how to operate the most current bakery equipment and machinery, order bakery supplies and equipment, compute the cost of a finished bakery product and implement creative merchandising displays. You will mix, proof and bake breads, sweet goods, rolls, pies, cakes and variety breads. And you’ll become an expert in preparing and applying icings and filings to cakes, pies and pastries. You will also gain real experience in the student-run bakery on the SCC campus.
