I am moving to another state in January. BUT, it may possibly be before then (my husband's company may shut down his dept in August). So my question is, should I stop taking cake orders for later in the year? I have a wedding cake request for November, which I obviously want to take. But what if I end up having to move before then? What would I do? Any advise would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Stop taking orders for the earliest day you would be moving. What's worse that having a bride know that her cake would be canceled right?

Oh yes, stop taking orders. You will be busy packing and getting things ready so don't wait until the last minute to make up your mind when to do it.
I would probably stop for now since Aug might be 'the time'. You can always take a few later on if Aug isn't the end.

Yes, stop taking orders for the earliest date that you think that you might move! I moved last year, and it was just a few streets over - it was the most stressful thing ever because I only took a couple of weeks off to do it, and had clients calling me for orders DURING my move (my number stayed the same, and just transferred to the new house)! I ended up having to pack while doing wedding cakes, and then unpacking during our vacation, then getting right back into the wedding season after we had unpacked - never again. My advice - take time off to do it all!
