Could an interest in cake making turn into a career?
September 17, 2019 / Libby Barrett
Many people dream of turning something they feel passionate about into a career, but not everyone takes the steps to make that dream a reality. Not so for Nicoletta, who enrolled on our cake making course both for enjoyment and with a view to starting her own business.
Nicoletta is originally from Italy, where she attended hotel management school and achieved a diploma in hotel cooking. She worked in a restaurant in Italy for 5 years, before moving to the UK where she worked for restaurants and hotels in London and Edinburgh. Her passion lies with desserts and baking, which is why she wanted to learn more about baking techniques in order to further her abilities.
Like so many of our students, Nicoletta was drawn to distance learning because of the flexibility it offers. Studying at her own time and pace, even at night-time, meant it fit perfectly around her existing lifestyle. She loved the lack of restrictions associated with traditional learning environments and, after researching different courses, she found that the Cake Making Level 2 course from Open Study College was perfect for her.
Nicoletta found that she enjoyed putting her learnings into practice, and has shared lots of pictures of her creations on her Instagram page – why not take a look?
Looking to the future, Nicoletta is open to the idea of studying more about baking and desserts, with the ultimate aim of having her own successful business.
We wish Nicoletta every success for the future, and hope she achieves her dream!
