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.

  3. Hi there. I’m visiting from Create with Joy’s Friendship Friday. A cake decorating business sounds like something my daughter might like to do!

    • Homebased cake business is easy to start and it is one of not many options that requires low investment and has low risk. When you just getting started with the cake decorating business you may only need some basic skills, a heavy duty mixer, some bowls, spatulas, food colors and ingredients and a place with an oven which can be your home kitchen.

      Bakeries make tasty cakes but often they want to save time and make simple and plain cake decorating. By making your cakes unique and using creative designs your cakes will stand out and have good chances to attract clients that are looking and willing to pay for custom made cakes.

      Many adults and kids have food allergies and planning kids birthday parties can turn into a nightmare because there are very limited number of bakeries that offer gluten-free, eggs-free, truly sugar-free or nuts-free cakes. People who have diabetes, watch their sugar intake or want to lose weight avoid cakes and cupcakes because they are all very high in sugar.

      However, any problem creates a great business opportunity if YOU can offer a solution to it. Not many people know that there are healthy truly sugar-free dessert recipes that are suitable for diabetics and actually can improve metabolism and assist weight loss. This can be YOUR opportunity to start cake decorating business and offer a unique service that nobody else has.

  4. Great information! Thanks for sharing at Mix it up Monday 🙂

    • Thank you Kathy for stopping by and leaving such a positive feedback. You are absolutely right: Cake decorating as a business will be never boring, will boost creativity and you will have a lot of fun doing it 🙂 It can be perfect for stay-at-home-moms and believe it or not but many start to their cake business by taking their first orders for the kids friends birthday cakes.

  6. My son actually has a good friend who while home ill, started to make cupcakes then share them. Within a few years she now owns her own cupcake bakery that’s doing exceptionally well.
