Hi, as you can see I live in sydney and I bought it for cookies.

It is fabulous. I agree, well worth it.

I don't have a business, but use it all of the time. It is very easy and fun to use and I hope some day I will have a good starting point for when I do start my own business.

i absolutely love this software! it is very easy to use and is a great help at pricing. it does all the conversion calculations for you! it keeps track of appointments, client's birthdays and anniversaries, and helps you to see how much of a profit you are making. it's a great investment.

I purchased the Cake Boss Software about 6 monts ago. I do have a question as well. When I put a recipie in it ask how many servings does it make. How do you determine this? I guestimate and then when it computes the charges based on the serving size of the cake ordered and the cost of each slice, it gives me a outrages cost of the cake. Help!!! I havent used the software in months because of this. What am I doing wrong?

I have the software. I've had it for about 4 months and it's the best program I've ever had on my computer. I am still learning about it but it's wonderful!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this program. I was undercharging terribly before I bought this software.

I will not even attempt to quote a cake before entering all my data.

In terms of charging by slice, I don't use it like that. I enter all my recipes and items which comes up with a base price then I add how many hours at my hourly rate and that's how I am charging. Since you can mark up your recipes, supplies, etc it tells you what your actual cost is and what your profit is from each that feature!
