Well, I think you can learn it. Can you have a fellow student help you out? Or watch online videos? Or even ask a professor again? I think you’ll be fine, and it really does sound like you passion. Besides, once you get through school, you can just focus on pastries or something like that! 🙂 Good luck!

Oh my god, I could have written this. I am about to graduate with a degree in Political Science, but I am graduating two years late because I went to pastry school in the middle of college. 

I decided not to go into baking because I am very passionate about social justice and political reform, and I wasn’t finding many people in the culinary world that gave a crap about either of those things. It was harder for me to sacrifice those things than to sacrifice the time I had spent in culinary school.

I also didn’t go into baking because of the hours. I hate mornings!

I would recommend that you sit down and make a classic Pros/Cons list. This really helped me. Also, don’t be afraid to change course now. Better late than never!
