Bakers mix different ingredients that are used to bake products such as breads, cakes, pastries, cookies, pies and rolls. They typically make the products according to standard recipes although some create new recipes. They check the quality of the ingredients before using them.
Bakers are primarily categorized into retail and commercial bakers depending on where they work. The first group of bakers works in specialty shops and grocery stores while the latter works in various manufacturing facilities. Other bakers have their own businesses.
