Hi - I'm planning a home-based business soon and I don't know where to start. CakeCentral is a great place to start and share ideas. When you start your business, how did you decide what flavor cakes and frosting you use, cake mixes or scratch? Cookbook? Which flavor are popular? etc.

What I'm going to do is to go to our local library and see if they carry cake recipe books. I have two books that I might want to try this weekend - it's called Duncan's Cake Magic Part I and II. Some of the recipes sound good, but I'll know it for sure when it comes to tasting.

I may also try Martha Stewart's recipes, but I've heard from other people that some of her cake recipes wasn't that great. I'm going to check with Amazon website and search for cake books to start out with.
