I posted a while back about starting up a cake supply shop/bakery and got loads of feed back, thanks!

Next Question....
I have been researching the wholesale prices to figure out a profit margin and cant seem to get any wholesale distributors to give me their prices without already having a business. Do you have any suggestion for a place that might give me this info or have this info already? Thanks again for your help!

I live in NY and I got a sales tax ID number - it doesn't cost anything and with this number I got all kinds of wholesale info. once they see this # they're willing to talk. if you decide not to have your business, you just cancel the tax ID number and that's it.
