Guichon first started earning as a pastry chef when he joined the Wolfsberg Bakery in Geneva for a certain time period. This was followed by an apprenticeship at the Maison Lenôtre, which is located in the suburbs of Paris. In 2010, he was awarded the title of Best Apprentice in France, by the council of the MOF association.
After completing his apprenticeship, he joined the Lenôtre Boutique and School in Cannes. He later worked as an executive pastry chef at the Hugo & Victor Patisserie and Chocolate Shop in Paris, a position he had already risen to at the tender age of 21.
Guichon received an invitation from Jean-Philippe Maury to work at the Las Vegas branches of his Patisseries, which were in the Aria Resort and Casino, as well as the Bellagio Hotel. Guichon moved to the United States in 2014. He worked as a private consultant and conducted masterclasses. He eventually co-founded his own pastry academy, the Amaury Guichon Pastry Academy with Belgian chef Michel Ernots in the city of Las Vegas in 2019.
Amaury Guichon started posting on TikTok in 2016 and went viral pretty quickly. He is said to earn a considerable amount of income from TikTok, given the fact that he has 11.1 million followers. With an average amount of 250k likes per post and over at least 2-3 million views per post, his engagement is around 3%. With the base cost of income from each TikTok post being at least over $2,000 per 1000 fans, he could very well be earning at least $100k per year, if not more.
On TikTok, he has been sponsored by culinary equipment brands like Watercut Pastry, but generally, he doesn’t do as many sponsorships on the platform.
On YouTube, Guichon has 458,000 followers and he posts longer versions of his TikTok videos on the channel. According to Social Blade, his monthly income is estimated to be $2.3K - $36.3K, while his yearly income from the platform is said to be between $27.2K - $436K. The channel currently has 79 uploads.

In August 2021, it was announced that Guichon would host ‘School of Chocolate’ on Netflix, a competition in which contestants construct elaborate, detailed, and complicated chocolate sculptures. Guichon would both guide them and judge the end result. One of the key selling points of this show is that no one gets eliminated. According to Guichon, the space is mainly to help students learn and unlearn facets of pastry making, which cannot be solved by punishment, instead, it must be through reinforcement and constructive criticism.
The 8-episode reality series premiered on the platform internationally on 26 November 2021.
As of 2022, he continues to work as a social media personality, while being a consultant and an instructor of the art of pastry making.
