Dear Ms. Lansbury:
I would like to express a strong interest in the Cake Decorator’s position currently available at United Supermarkets. The excitement to be employed by such a prestigious organization would enable me make the most of my creative skills and cake decoration expertise.
My cakes are special. I am well versed in cake filings. While I do buy some from the market, I am more comfortable concocting my own butter cream and whipped cream. During my employment with ABC Bakery, I acquired considerable expertise in baking and decorating pound cakes, chiffon cakes and angel-food cakes and specialize in fondants especially. I use to make my own icings and fondants which is why they taste different from anything that you may find in a regular bakery.
Through my cake decoration training, I developed insight on carving specifically shaped cakes and providing them with a uniform appearance. I was also taught the different ways in which cupcakes are baked and decorated, using many types of pastry bags. I was also able to develop my skills in creating figures from marzipans, fondants and spun sugar.
This work excites me very much and I look forward to each day’s challenge in creating imaginative pieces of art. I would like to share this joy with the world by working for United Supermarkets. Please call me at (000) 333-1020 if you would like a demonstration of my skills in your kitchen. I look forward to meeting with you in person soon.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
