Cake Decorator

Your Role:  As a Cake Decorator at Speedi Gourmet you will make our ice cream cakes, decorate them either to standard or to customer request, interact with customers taking orders or responding to requests, and keep our cake cases full of wonderful cakes that sell!  You are a strong multi-tasker and can demonstrate a balance of all front of the house (customer service duties) and back of the house (cake making and decorating) operations.  You are able to stand for long periods of time and able to easily lift up to 25 pounds.

Who is your boss? You will collaborate with other team members and your shifts may be lead by an Assistant Manager, Shift Leader, or the Store Manager.  The Store Manager will conduct all reviews.

What you’re good at:

  • Customer Service: You enjoy interacting with customers; serving their needs with a smile.
  • Confident Communicator: You are fluent in English, and perhaps another language.  You listen well, respond respectfully, and are comfortable chatting with people.
  • Team Player: you enjoy being part of team, looking out for others, challenging each other to provide the best products and services possible
  • Creative: the challenge of creating new cakes for seasons or holidays is exciting.  You enjoy making “templated” cakes but thoroughly enjoy the challenge of making “just the right cake” for each and every customer who orders in advance.  This often will require a bit of investigation to find a piece of art to use as a guide to create that unique communication as well as listening carefully to customer needs.
  • Enjoy learning: depending on the store you are assigned to work, you may need to learn and be able to quickly make, as many as 100 different food and beverage items on top of the cake prep process and decorating materials.  While we’ll teach you what you need to know, you need to be ready and interested in learning it!
  • Fast-paced work:  we are in growth mode at all of our stores, and serve customers with food and treats out of the same small space you will be using to make and decorate cakes.  There will always be a lot going on!
  • Reliable: you pride yourself on being to work on time, ready to work, and you work hard throughout your scheduled shift.
  • “Neat freak”:  your work station, the back of house, uniform, your person – everything is neat and tidy.  You enjoy the process of tidying up after a rush or an order arriving.
  • Good with money: you will be handling cash, and you’re comfortable in that role.  You are honest and trustworthy with the money in your care.
