First let me say sorry if this was already asked.

I have been decorating cakes for over 1 year now. I have graduated from all 4 wilton classes and now decorate in my spare time. I average probably 2 cakes a month. I do charge for my cakes, but its under the table.

I would like to know how to get into the decorating business. I do work a M-F 9-5 job but would like to work somewhere PT to gain experience and more skills. I tried working at my local grocery store last summer, but I was not allowed to decorate because the manager didnt have time to train me on the "x company way" (even though that's what I was hired for) so, I left the job.

to see my previous work:

Any suggestions?

find out what it takes to be legal where you live, call the health dept. and city hall.

very few places allow you to sell what you make from your home kitchen.
