Hiddie ho cakers!
I was just wondering if anyone had developed a cake club to band together in order to purchase wholesale.

This would keep costs down on supplies like flour, butter, etc....

I am thinking the club members would have to be in close proximity to one another to make it viable. Any suggestions input or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

What you're suggesting is actually a purchasing cooperative.

They are a great idea, as long as you can get the purchase commitments, and the money for them, from each member.

I have given this subject some thought in the past, for purchase of groceries, but couldn't get the people to commit to ordering bulk hamburger. My idea of buying in bulk is 10 lbs or more per person. Then you get the people who want to join in, but only want to buy 2-3 lbs at a time.

If you can find enough people in your area to make the right commitments, then by all means, go for it.

Only 2-3 lbs is bulk to them? icon_confused.gif

I have 5 kids to feed and a deep freezer in the garage I like to keep stocked. lol

2 lbs would probably do us for one meal. icon_biggrin.gif
