Future Bakers, Set Your Mind on 1 Degree for 60 Seconds

A “Your Class in 60 Seconds” video added to the Penn College YouTube channel visits the Advanced Baking & Pastry Operations class, which instills such principles including menu planning, creating and selling products and bakery operation. From conception to final patisserie sale, students receive a tremendous hands-on education throughout the course.  “You’ll come to class with your plans for the day and your strong work ethic,” says Victoria L. Kostecki, who holds Penn College degrees in baking and pastry arts (2014) and applied management (2016). “Writing the menu is a combination of baking and pastry methodology, dynamic communication skills and teamwork. Once the menu has been developed, you work to create the items you plan to sell.”
