A baker spends the day creating various baked goods for their establishment, perhaps including artisan breads, specialty desserts, or simple dinner rolls.

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.
