does anyone know how we should start on opening a cake supplies store on how to get supplies and where I could get them I live in California
Once you get the legalities out of the way, then start contacting the suppliers like Wilton, Bakery Crafts, Americolor, CK Prodcuts and so on!
Where in California are you?
You should probably talk to Dolores at Sugarcraft.com.
She has a huge mail order and great shop for cake supplies. She can also fill you in on how expensive the inventory can be, difficulties with suppliers and the time committment and the overhead for a business like this. You need a lot of money up front to stock supplies, set up the store.
Really, where in California are you?
