You might be better off seeing if you can get employment with an employer prepared to sponsor you initially on a 457 and hopefully later for PR.
If that happens the fee you have paid for your 885 will mean you do not need to pay again for an Employer Sponsored PR visa.
Other than that and I would think you are going to be in for a lengthy wait with as you say a possibility of nothing much ever happening.

Prior to Immi developing the new regulations format there had been a substantial backlog of skilled applications having built up which comprised both onshore applications and offshore applications and it also meant that there was a huge imbalance of occupations being processed and thus why Immi had to introduce the changes.
In the case of onshore skilled visas it seemed that there had been something of a significant marketing approach by various people overseas and possibly also with Australian connections where international students were being attracted to many courses simply as a means to applying for PR.
I do know that hairdressing and cooking occupations were identified as areas where a huge over supply had already developed and so you had the situation where Australia did not have a demand for tens of thousands of hairdressers or cooks but did for many other professions and trades, hence quite radical changes to the skilled visa regulations and there is inclusion of legislation that will allow for capping all occupations where an over supply is developed.

That is something all international students do need to appreciate and whereas there has always been separation between student visas and skilled visas, I suppose the priority processing arrangements do now show more clearly that skilled visas are to be allocated through a demand system.
I have not checked the SOL #4 schedule to see if pastry cooks are on it and could perhaps be listed by a state but if the occupation does not appear on any SMP, I would think given the existing backlogs and still plenty of people using employer sponsorship, many likely to use State Migration Plans for the higher priority it will offer and/or applying with prioritised occupations in SOL#3, the chances of people with other occupations to get skilled visas is very slim in deed.

I supppose as you say, if you have work and can continue to work while on a bridging visa for even longer than the end of 2011, if you are earning/saving more than you would in your home country, that may help you set yourself up for a future there and who knows, you may even meet an Australian citizen or PR and develop a relationship.
