I am trying to get an amount that it would cost me to get my new business off of the ground. I am little overwhelmed an can't seem to get a list of equipment and supplies to come up with a total. Does anyone know where I can find a list of must haves for a small cutom cake business? I am drawing a blank and wish I had some sort of outline to go by.
Are you talking about heavy equipment or just decorating supplies. When I started I bought Wilton Kit 1, which was about 50 bucks. Two years later I have spent about $5K and still don't have everything I want.
Just a starter:
Pans of all sizes, round and square (you can add different shapes as you go).
A GOOD mixer (I like Kitchenaid, but I am dreaming of Hobart).
The list just goes on and on and on and on.
What do I need to open a bakery:
It would help if we knew where you lived. How much you need (money or material wise) depends on the laws in your state concerning selling food products.
I saw a thread from a couple of weeks ago where someone had left an enormous list of the things he/she needed to start up, plus a list of monthy expenses and stuff. It was a little overwhelming.
I can't seem to find that thread again. Maybe (hopefully) that person will see this thread and post the list again.
