“I am planning to begin a cake business from home.”
Are you having the same thoughts? I did too!
I love baking so much that I want to share it with people until I decided to earn from it. And so, I started mine a few years ago and I’m loving the feedbacks of my customers until today.
I began my business simple. I had no stall, no business card, and no market. All I did was post my creations on social media and then one day, it just boomed!
Don’t miss your chance! Start right away! Here are some must-haves to start a simple cake business from home.
You already know what this is and I bet you’d agree with me that this is an important necessity for bakers especially when it comes to decorating cakes. Beautify with ease with this cake turntable. Whether it is a single, double, or multi-layered cake, this tool will help you finish your job flawless.
This is good for making layered round cakes. You know this trick, right? Bake a pound cake and you slice it into batches to incorporate icing in between each layer. By doing such, this will make your cake look taller and this will balance the taste of your cake and filling. If you have this tool, you can make sure that your cake is evenly sliced from all sides. Make no room for errors, it’s bad to waste too much as you’re just starting your cake business.
Want to offer a cake delivery service? No problem! Here is a simple-starter cake carrier that could assist you in your cake business from home.
If a customer ordered cupcakes for fun parties, don’t settle for the plain ones and use these muffin liners instead.
Your customers will not always order whole cakes, some would like to get batches of cupcakes. You won’t give this one by one, right? Put them in a box! I suggest having a maximum of a dozen cupcakes since you will start your cake business small and from home. This box does just the thing for you. The good thing about this box is that it will keep your cupcakes secure while being carried or being delivered by car because of its holders and its lid is made transparent so to provide a good view of the cupcakes.
When it comes to a cake business, we give our customers the freedom to give their suggestions with regards to the appearance of their orders including the colors of their cakes. From the batter to the icing, frosting, and other decorations, you would want to satisfy these customers and to build trust with them. For you not to miss a thing, here is a set of edible food coloring pigments. You can make do with the colors as they are or mix them to make more shade variations.
If you don’t have a good quality stand mixer and a proper space for a “white mess”, attach this lid on your hand mixer. This will lessen the scatter of ingredients while being mixed.
These cake servers could be used for spreading cream and slicing cakes.
It’s okay to start small. I did the same and now my business is stable.
Don’t rush, you’ll get there. Be patient, make your plan into a reality. Good luck with your cake business!
