Why Choose the Pastry Arts Program?
Pastry Arts entails creativity in manufacturing a product that fulfills a basic need: to eat. Students train for careers as bakers, pastry chefs and more, as the hospitality field includes many job opportunities.
In our program, students have the flexibility to explore areas in baking and pastry that they individually want to learn more about, parallel to the foundation that we expect them to build in our program. Students explore a world canvas with diversity of cultures, styles and resources, and gain real-world experience baking products for CPTC's Bon Sucre Bistro.
And for students who may choose not to pursue a long-term career in pastry or culinary arts, the program provides a positive impact that continues for the rest of their lives through their improved skills and menu for both themselves and their loved ones.
