In a local info magazine there is a competition to win a shop rent free for a year, business support and advertising.
I would like to do bespoke cakes so something a bit different not round/square cakes with Happy Birthday on which is really most of the thing on offer where I live.
Dare I enter the competition? What if I won? What if I didnt?

I make cakes from home and have a website, started that last Aug ( I only stated making cakes in Sep 2008 and then went on a short course and then a fab day course with Debbie Brown) is this a step too far too soon? Do my cakes make the grade? I am always worried that they are not good enough when someone comes to collect!
