I've been decorating cakes for a few years. It's my passion and my creative outlet!
Through conversations I've had with other cake artists, and my own experiences, I've come to realize that there is a big void when it comes to comprehensive information about the business side of making cakes. There are hundreds of fabulous books about cake decorating... some how-to, some purely for inspiration, some recipes, and many combinations of all three. What there aren't much of are books about the tricks and pitfalls of making a living at decorating cakes.
That's where I come in.
I'm writing a book to fill that void. It covers the whole gamut of the business of cake... from deciding whether to open a home-based business or open a storefront, to other things you can add on to your business. There will be a few basic recipes that I love, but the book is about the steps and decisions you will need to make in order to have a successful cake business; no matter the size!
The web is a massive source of information, and one I intend to use. I will be passing along tips and tricks along with general conversations about the process of this book in my posts.
This is where you come in.
Got something that really works for you? Some tip or technique or tool or idea? Is there something you don't know that you'd really like to (cake-related of course!) I'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Anything you submit here may be used (with credit given of course) in the book, but will also be available to anyone who reads this blog!
There are several great resources on-line (which I will discuss soon!) and hopefully this blog will become another one!
