This course focuses on building the skills of bakers looking to tackle more complex breads, pastries and confections and learn more detailed techniques. We recommend this course for those students who already have a strong baking skill set and simply want to enhance their baking methods and improve their methods. Please Note: while there are no official prerequisites for enrolling in this course, we strongly recommend that you have either taken our Introduction to Pastry Arts course, or already have a working knowledge of the basics of baking.
