Dear Mr. Mathew:
Having heard so much about the reputation Café Java, I was intrigued to see the advertisement for a Pastry Chef at your cafe. I am interested in applying for this position because my culinary background and the ability to work collaboratively will enable me to produce maximum output.
I offer a strong passion for baking, recipe creation, and scratch baking. My track record of producing creative and artistic bakery products along with a profound ability to follow recipes will add significantly to the café. I make the most of all of my talents to ensure that quality standards are met. Additionally, I have a keen sense of planning and producing centerpieces and banquet trays that are appealing to the eye. I know just how to operate pastry-making equipment and tools and possess the ability to expand and condense recipes as and when needed.
My areas of expertise include:
- Preparing cakes, cookies, pies, and bread following traditional and modern recipes
- Creating new and exciting desserts
- Decorating pastries using various icings and toppings to ensure a beautiful presentation
- Leading pastry assistants and bakers, and motivating to work more efficiently
- Maintaining a clean and neat cooking station

Mr. William Shatner
The Bake Shoppe
534 Georgian Ter
Syracuse, NY 64742
Dear Mr. Shatner:
I have been an avid fan of baking for a long time, and my creativity has also been channelized towards this profession. That is why I am sending my resume as a job application of the Pastry Chef Position currently available at The Bake Shoppe. With my ability to turn a raw pile of ingredients into delectable treats, I am quite sure that I will have much to contribute to your bakery.
By virtue of a high aptitude to pay close attention to detail and a steady hand, I have been deemed an “artist” when it comes to pastry decoration. I have had considerable experience with the flaky pastry which is one of the most difficult types to “get right,” and I have even invented a cream-filled flaky pastry that does not dissolve but in the mouth! Since I was working in a supervisory position in my last workplace, I have had experience overseeing staff and pastry production to maintain both quality and quantity and to further customer services.
The unique opportunity of working at The Bake Shoppe will allow me to use my expertise in a productive environment. I’d like to meet with you to discuss this in detail. To follow-up, I will call you after 5 working days. Should you need to contact me in the interim, I may be reached at (000) 777-7777.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
