A baker spends the day creating various baked goods for their establishment, perhaps including artisan breads, specialty desserts, or simple dinner rolls. Bakers usually either work shifts in the morning or evening; they may also work from morning to night, which is especially true of a baker who owns their own bakery. A baker can work in a variety of settings, including a bakery, a restaurant, or another food service establishment. Some bakers own their own bakeries, and some work under the owner of their establishment.
