Hello everyone,

I have a simple question. Do any of you use Cake Boss and if you do is it worth the money to purchase it? Also are there any other similar programs out there that I dont know about. Any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

I am new to cake decorating, charging, forums, etc and I find the programs to be helpful. Once you input the data-recipes, prices etc it really helps to reduce some of the guesswork for pricing. The invoice also looks really nice. My "customers" are impressed. icon_biggrin.gif

Hi brian,

I have cake boss and have been using it for a year now. It has been the best purchase for me! It keeps track of your customers, gives you a calender of when you have cakes, prices cakes for you keeps recipes handyand thier customer service is wonderful. I couldnt ask for a better tool! It is well worth the money it cost and being a member here you get 10% off. I absolutly love the program.
Don't hesitate to purchase you will love it!

Hello, I purchased the cake boss and just couldnot get it to work on my computer, I have Vista, I called and they were very nice to try to get it taken care of but I decided to not keep it. I also got a matrix off of the forums and it works wonderful. icon_biggrin.gif Hope this helps.

I have it, and I absolutely love it! I've had it for about a year as well, and I don't know what I would do without it! Definitely worth the money icon_biggrin.gif

I did the free trial thing a while back ago and really loved it....I just didn't have the money to buy it at the time. Still don't actually, but I know that someday I will buy it - it's really worth it!

Ditto to everything that Paula said (and not just because my name is Paula too). Not only is this a great program for all the reasons stated above, but the price and the customer service are great. The program is regularly updated, and anytime I've needed anything or had any questions, the program creators responded very quickly.

I am sure ckae boss is great. I started out using Quicken before I knew about cake boss so that is what I continue to use.

So it doesn't work w/Windows Vista?

Yes, it does work with Vista. Installation problems are rare, and when they occur we can usually resolve the problem if that is what the customer desires.

I just got a Vista laptop last week and installed CakeBoss on it in less than 10 minutes. thumbs_up.gif
