What exactly are you looking for? Are you trying to type up a quote?

google search "RFP" or "request for proposal". Those are written in a certain way so its best to follow those guidelines, or ask them if they have a specific format/ template.

It might ask for your all of your official info too: Health inspection info, biz name and tax number, insurance, etc. It just depends on what they want to see in order to do business with you.

Do a search for "writing a proposal for a job bid" on the internet. There was some interesting things that came up.

Do they have a format that they use? If not then just write up what you are offering.

How big of a cake are you making? How many servings would probably be a better question to ask. What is your price per serving? What is the design of the cake you are quoting?
