Personal chef. I hate baking and dealing with only one client would probably a lot easier than dealing with a whole lot of customers.

Pastry chef for sure! I love baking and being creative in the kitchen. It would all be wasted if I were whipping up egg white omelets and seaweed smoothies for some Hollywood snob.

I love baking, so pastry chef! It runs in the family... when my grandfather was still alive, he owned a bakery.

Pastry chef all the way. Besides having a sweet tooth, I enjoy baking far more than I do cooking. It's weird- I actually loathe cooking but baking is so much fun to me.

I would rather be a pastry chef (love sweets!) than a personal chef who has to cater to the whim of some star or starlet...

Pastry chef, only because I'm much better at baking than cooking.
