Hi All!! Do you any of you use a form when taking a cake order, and if so any suggestions on where to find a template online? I could probably put one together with Excel or what not, but I was just curious.

Thanks!

decopac has a very generic cake form you can order. There are two things I don't like about it. At the bottom it asks if you want bread with your order and it doesn't have a space for tax. I have a label with my logo and telephone number that I put at the bottom to cover the bread question. It works for me because I don't give a copy of the cake form to the customer. It is just an order form for me, it is not the receipt for payment. That comes from my register.

I just bought a book of generic order forms from Office Depot. It has a carbon copy receipt for the customer and lots of note space.

I make my own and trust me, it's designed for me, for my style. It is NOT a generic order form, because I dont' go down a list of generic questions with a bride. I pretty much just make notes that I need to create the cake. I don't check a box to show flavor, or filling, or cake sizes, or shapes, or assembly style ... but that info is incorporated in my notes.

As I tell my brides ... I'm a Wedding Caterer .... not a Food Order Taker. And going down a checklist would make me feel like a Food Order Taker ... I dont' want to get to the bottom and feel compelled to ask them "And do you want fries with that?" icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

The generic forms I use are for birthdays, etc. I do have a different form I made just for wedding cake orders. I think those have to be made for or by the the decorator since we all have such different styles, etc. I do use the standard decopac order form for all other occasion cakes.
