I am interested in possibly teaching a class or two in my local area but I don't know where to start. I don't have a storefront so I cannot hold a class where I am at. I have visited local supply stores but I really would like to set the prices and times myself. Any advice?

Yes, go back to the local cake supply stores and try to work something out with the owners. I set my own private classes and my costs with the owners feedback. I pay her a use fee and make sure the product is bought from her store. She gets the customers and passes the info to me. In addition, during Spring and Autumn I offer larger classes and we work out the dates, how many students and the prices. And she gets the customers.........both of us win.

I have taught a class at a local cake supply store and the owner and I split the money participants paid for the class 50/50 (her idea). I am thinking about seeking out some other stores and was wondering if you think 50/50 is fair?

I've taught clases at the local community center. I have control over price, number of students, date, everything.

I have taught classes at my church. Lots of churches will have a 'community room' or banquet type room with a kitchen. You might have to pay a rental fee.
