Starting a Cake Business

Do you find yourself interested in baking? Then you could be successful in starting a cake business. Read on for six easy steps to start a cake business!

Believe it or not, I love to bake cakes and cookies! The warm smell of cinnamon and ginger wafting through the air is enough to satiate my children’s raving hunger pangs.

fresh cake from bakery

Baking cakes is fun and with two children running around the house, everything I made was consumed in less than a few hours. Friends, who were lucky enough to be around at the time of baking, always raved about the cooking and urged me to start a cake order business. “We’ll pay to eat a much bigger slice of those exotic goodies”, was the common refrain!

Tips and trick on how to start a cake business!

So it was after serious thought, I decided why not really turn this into something profitable. The very first thing I did was to read up on how to start a cake business and here’s what I learned.

  • If I wanted more business, then I had to make sure my cakes and cookies were better looking, tastier, and yummier, than the local bakers. That meant regular new classes and newer recipes and my family as the guinea pig. But that’s the best way to be in demand, right!
  • I tapped all those friends who were willing to pay for my goodies and then utilized them to get my business going by word of mouth publicity. I even got them to distribute flyers and discount coupons for my cake business!
  • I then approached local cake and coffee houses for taking on my samples and selling my cakes. Although a few did refuse, many did like my products, and that gave me a tremendous boost.
  • I contacted local wedding planners to show my cakes, show my ability for wedding cakes. Believe me a well made wedding cake can really get you going with the wedding planners! And through them, I managed to get referrals to several party organizers as well as event mangers.
  • Free publicity always counts. In a bid for recognition, I sponsored quite a few local events and church fundraising activities, as well as offered free sample products to the local orphanage. This created really great exposure and word of mouth publicity free of charge!
  • After a sufficient amount of publicity was generated using press releases, I decided it was time to keep the interest going and baked a really big cake for the local orphanage in the form of a giant cookie. The cake was cut and the proceeds went to charity. I had to spend a really great amount of time to do this but the publicity it generated was…………………….priceless!

    I restarted or am trying to restart my mother's cake business. She made cakes for a local bar/tavern. Her cakes did very well in the 1980's. So I am using her recipes, I left several complimentary cakes with my business card with several restaurants. They like them but they don't follow up. I got to actually see an owner at my latest apartment. I left a chocolate peanut butter cake and a whiskey. The cake is a tube cake with chocolate chips, coconut and pecans and whiskey of course... it's a delicious cake. Well, he tried them and tells me that the whiskey belongs in a diner and is nothing more than a pound cake and of course the peanut butter didn't go over well due to the resent peanut butter scare.... So he threw them out. I made two other cakes... a boston creme and a carrot cake. He's going to try them but reminds me that he can go to BJ's and get larger cakes for $9.95... Like New York style cheese cake. I offered a 9" boston creme for $13.00 and a 9" carrot cake for $16.00. (complimentary to him) The carrot cake is a scratch cake... with real cream cheese icing. How do I get around the Sam's Clubs and BJ's. I would like to sell my cakes to a restaurant. My 3 attempts haven't been far. How should I change my approach or product price?
  • Kitchen Wizard said on May 7, 2009
    How can all of you bake out of your homes? Don't you know it is illegal to do so? It's also illegal for a restaurant to purchase a cake that was made in a home.

    Please explain how you have gotten around this? I am so curious as I have started a cake business and of course am not doing it from any home. Please advise.

  • James expert adviser said on July 24, 2009
    @Linda, next will be making some loyal customers. Don't target for a huge profit from the day one. This is the time to buildup your reputation in the market. Reaching to your customers is another issue that you should not forget. Advertise your business as much as possible. You need to set up some goals for yourself and try to reach that at any cost. Come back and share your experience with us. Good luck!!!

    I make cakes for family, friends and for home. I love to bake and make some wonderful cakes. I was helping out at a friends Tea Shop a few years ago. She asked if she could have one of my recipes to make and sell at the shop. As a friend I said sure, but please dont give it out to anyone. And if you ever sold your buisness do not sell my recipe. I left town for a couple of years to come back to a new owner of the Tea Shop making my cake and selling it for $2.95 a slice. I was truly upset but what could I do. She has since sold it to someone else who makes my cake and is making money from it...What can I do to have my recipe back and how about me making money off it.

    Hi my mother and I have been making cakes for the events and holiday by request only. We've done sweet 16 cakes, wedding cakes, anniversary cakes, really a wild assortment of cakes. We're both self taught. But thinking of taking classes with the local hobby lobby to fine tune our skills. It started off as a hobby but now people keeping asking if we're open up a bakery. our customers are constantly telling us that or cakes are better than Nona's ( local upscale bakery) and at a better price. But we're not sure what the next step is. Charlott, NC

    Hi, I'm from Hillcrest, KZN South Africa and started a cake business from home in October last year. I advertise on a couple of local websites and donated a few cakes to local charities (photo of me handing cake over for fundraising etc went into local paper with my contact details of course :). Found advertising in papers didn't work and was too expensive and that by giving good service I have had a lot of referrals from customers. My children talking about my cakes at school has helped a lot too as parents hear about it through their kids and are very curious :)
  • ryan barker said on January 10, 2011
    expensive custom cakes are a luxury, but don't underprice your product if you truly believe it's superior. people get those grocery store cakes out of convenience and price, *not* quality. those cakes are cheap because of their manufacturing process, bulk ingredient prices, and cheaper ingredients. your profit margin on an average sheet cake will probably be lower than a store's, but it's all about taste and appearance. undercutting the stores is simply a good way of pricing yourself out of business in the long run.

    and, yes, you absolutely need licenses if you plan on selling your product. here in ohio, you can bake in your home only as long as you have no pets. first you'll need a vendor's license, which is around $25-30, then you'll need a 'food license.' my license, because i own a convenience store, is called a 'retail food establishment license,' and since it's one that allows me to make food as opposed to just selling it, it costs roughly $450 per year to renew. and don't forget that you'll have to file sales tax on what you sell.

    i'm just considering a cakery at this point, but it should be pretty clear what equipment you'll need just to make a cake. you probably have all that already, except perhaps for a cooler. my suggestion is looking into a used cooler at auctions or even outfitting a used single door pop cooler. there's no need to go crazy with equipment whose cost you can't justify. after that, decide what skills you have/want to learn and invest in mid-range equipment then upgrade as the situation warrants. some items, like a quality mixer, should just be purchased outright and not skimped on.

    one thing i've learned in the food business is how to ruin it ~ when time's get tough, do NOT try to make up for lost income by raising prices and lower the quality of your ingredients to save money. you won't last long if you follow this sure-fire disastrous business method.

    there's nothing in this article on how to start a business, just some promotional tips which actually aren't too bad, i think. starting up a small business is scary and expensive, stressful and time-consuming. i'd venture to say that anyone taking it seriously and not as a hobby to make a few extra bucks should seriously consider finding a brick and mortar building to work out of. no one is going to come to your house to shop and placing orders strictly online or over the phone has its limitations, particularly when it comes to something like cakes. maybe you can place some cakes in stores, but the chances of that happening are slim. don't take it personally, but as a business owner i'm reticent about selling a product whose business is run out of home and might close up next week.

    NC/NY. You could also rent commercial kitchen space from several companies listed on the web, local churhes, schools & community centers. You can pay by the month or the hour. I too started out of the home when I was 16! I want to go back into business in either NC or NY and renew my license again. It makes sense to rent a kitchen when you need it.

    Hi, i would like to supplement my income by going into a cake business. I do get cake order once in a while but now would like to grow my business and improve on my cakes, though I have never had a complaint from those to who I have supplied my cakes. The problem is here in Zimbabwe you don't get all the ingredients like hazelnuts, pecan nuts, walnuts etc for fruit cakes from the local supermarkets. If you find them they are very expensive. Are there any alternatives to these nuts, please help because I would like to make the perfect cake without missing on the other ingredients. My email is thank you.

    Kitchen wizard, you are talking rubbish. It's NOT illegal to have a home cake business. You need to contact the local authorities to get inspected and registered. You also need your food safety certificate. It's all very legal!!!
