Why You Should Start a Homebased Cupcake or Cake Decorating Business

Cupcake businessIt may be easier to start a home based cupcake or cake decorating business than you think.

Even if you don’t have any experience baking and decorating cakes for a living.

The very first and possibly the most important thing that you need to consider before opening any kind of business is that you choose to do what you love and are passionate about.

5 Reasons Why To Start A Cupcake Or Cake Decorating Business

1. Low investment costs and risk:

You have low overhead expenses and the risk of going out of business are low. Furthermore, if you want to open up a cake business, chances are that you already have existing baking equipment such as mixer, cake pans and simple decorating tools, so you won’t have much problem with those. On the other hand, you only need to invest in these basic equipment and you’re good to go.

No rent. This is possibly the best reason for setting up a homebased cake business. It will also give you an edge over a “chic” cake boutiques that spend most of what they earn paying rent, salaries and utility bills.

No need to hire employees. You won’t have to hire employees to cash tend or to wait for eat-in customers and this means more savings and higher profits for your cake business.

You can have online store. You can set up a blog and/or a website where you can sell your cake designs and step-by-step cake decorating procedure online. Using social media, you can initially market your cakes to your friends and relatives who can let others know that you are taking cake orders.

 2. Comfortable working space.

There is nothing more fulfilling and relaxing than working in your own personal space at home. You will be comfortable and chances are that your cakes will come out looking and tasting their best. Furthermore, if baking and decorating cakes at home is your true passion, it won’t even feel like work at all.

 3. Set your own pace and work at your own time.

You can schedule a particular task if you wanted to like preparing chiffon cakes before-hand and freezing them, so you can decorate anytime you need to. At times, it won’t even be an 8-hour job but there will also be times when a whole day is not enough to finish your orders.

4. Cakes will be highly specialized.

Since you can only create very few decorated cakes a day, your products will really look and taste special and make a competition to the ordinary commercial cakes.

 5. Get paid doing what you love.

Selling personally decorated cakes is most rewarding especially when customers come back a second time. Furthermore, you will get paid doing what you love and with time your satisfied and happy customers will let know other people in their circles about your cake decorating business, your brand of cakes and baked goodies

Taking that first step and deciding to start a homebased cupcake or cake decorating business is usually the hardest but it can open up a lot of opportunities for anyone who wants to try. The easiest and fastest way to set up your own business is to learn from the Pros and follow a simple step by step guide.

Birthday cupcake ideasAre you looking for ways to spice up your cupcakes? Try out these five creative birthday cupcake ideas that are sure to impress your loved ones but super simple to do!

Cupcake Idea #1: Cupcake bouquet

Now this is a fun idea, perfect for a sweet Mother’s present or your friend’s birthday. It looks spectacular but it’s actually pretty simple to make. All you’ll need is a vase, basket or a pot, some toothpicks, a stryofoam ball, a dozen or so homemade cupcakes.

Watch the video tutorial below to see how you can make a cupcake bouquet yourself in under 1 minute.

Cupcake idea #2: Experiment with different cupcake sizes: cake pops, giant and mini cupcakes

Who said that cupcakes have to be all the same size every time you make them? Have fun making giant – almost cake sized – birthday cupcakes or maybe cake pops and mini cupcakes for the kids.

Watch the video tutorial below on how to make and decorate cake pops.

Description box:

You will need the following ingredients to make about 10-12 cake pops depending on size:
400g sponge cake
3/4 cup of frosting
flavouring of your choice (optional)
1 tablespoon of condensed milk (optional)
1 packet of white chocolate chips
sprinkles or any other decoration of your choice
10-12 lollipop sticks

Play around! Experiment a little and try making them different sizes, big, small… Or for a more challenging idea, play around with shapes too. Heart-shaped cupcakes for your husband, square and triangle cupcake shapes for the kids, the possibilities are endless.

Cupcake idea #3: Cupcake tower or tree

No more hassling for birthday cakes! Instead of the traditional layered cakes, why not give this a try? Cupcake towers are a lot more convenient, you won’t need to pass around forks and plates to eat this.

There are many different and unique designs you can experiment with, and you can have different flavors for each layer. This isn’t that hard to make, so give it a try next time you’re planning a birthday party.

Watch the video below for an inspiration and how to make Lady Bug birthday cupcake tower that also includes a mini cake on the top and cake pops bouquet. 

Cupcake idea #4: Try to combine multiple colors to make your birthday cupcakes colorful

Now that you’re playing with the sizes, why not experiment with the colors too?

  • Try multicolored cupcakes, how about a rainbow cupcake for the rainy seasons? It ranges from different colors to choose from so you’ll never run out of new birthday cupcake ideas to try out.
  • Icing is the baker’s best friend. Think of your cupcake as a painter’s canvas. Your creativity is the limit.
  • Cupcakes don’t have to be one color for each cupcake. Be a bit more daring, show off your piping skills. Piping is relatively easy once you get the hang of it, so don’t be afraid to try out different patterns and designs.

Cake idea #5: Be creative with cupcake toppings

Other than icing, there are still many toppings you can put on top of your birthday cupcakes. Chocolate decorations is always a good idea. You can try out chocolate bits, or scrapings and for kids, M&Ms would be really fun to use.

Strawberry cupcake toppingsFruits are great too, chopped strawberries, blueberries, fresh raspberries and of course, the classic cherries. You can also use some veggies if you want, like carrot or beet roses. This could be the most surprising and elegant birthday cupcake topping idea that people won’t expect.

Kids would love candies as toppings, and there are a wide variety of them such as gummies, chewy caramel bits and sprinkles. Don’t limit yourself, go ahead and be creative!
