What happened to the old-fashioned whipped cream cakes of our childhood? Those days are gone, replaced by these beautiful, often glossy-looking cakes and cupcakes of today!
And the people behind making sure that we have access to these yummy and pretty-looking creations are, well, bakers! Are you one of them? Great!
So then you are probably not looking for a history lesson on baking. Let’s get to the grind. You want to apply for a job and are looking for ways to write your cover letter in a manner which will not let a hiring manager bat an eye and take you in immediately? Well, you have come to the right place!
It stands to reason that if you are a baker, you know all there is to know about rolling fondant and creating Superman and Captain America out of it! And if baking creativity is your niche, you have nothing to worry about when writing a cover letter. Because that is what most employers are looking for nowadays.
Of course, if you can perform other dessert-making activities, you cannot possibly not be in a hiring manager’s favor!
Here is how you can put all these things in your cover letter in a manner as creative as you yourself are!

Dear Mr. Mason:
I am interested in speaking with you regarding a Cake Baker position with Adolphus Hotel. My baking experience, as well as my pastry arts certification, have prepared me well to make a significant contribution to your hotel.
My biggest success as a baker has been singlehandedly baking and decorating 900 cupcakes in one day for a client who wanted them as wedding giveaways! Realizing my potential as a culinary artist, I would like to bring both creativity and innovation to Adolphus Hotel.
Some of my areas of expertise lies include:
● Fondant Rolling
● Themed Baking
● Quantity Control
● Buttercream Consistency
● Packaging and Labeling
● Glazing and Icing
● Cake Decoration
● Baking Equipment Operation
● Recipe Development
Possessing an associate’s degree in pastry arts and a huge fan following on social media, I am positive of my ability to bring in more clients. If provided with an opportunity to demonstrate my baking prowess, I am quite sure that you will be convinced to hire me immediately.
With great control on production quality and excellent skills in preparing compotes, gelatins, custards, meat pies, and fillings, I am the definition of a complete baker! I will follow up with this letter with a phone call next week to determine when we can meet in person. If required, you can contact me at (000) 585-8541 or email me at andyfarm @ email. com.
Thank you for your consideration.
