I'm just starting out in my cake making and decorating business and need examples of what I should include in my consultation forms. For example, sponge type, customers budge, cake size, style and so forth. I really would appreciate some advice, thank you
Hey...I am in the same boat as you. I've been looking online at different forms and of course nothing is what i like. I figure may have to make my own. But I did find these site that will probably be my inspiration: http://www.creativecakes4u.com/contact.html and http://www.jesecacreations.com/planning/view.php?id=2.
If you make your own you can put what you want it. Hope this helps out a little bit
Do you mean an order form?
If so, you can find examples here:

thanks guys, ive searched the net too and cant find anything that helps! But will try your suggestions
Here's a link to a forum thread on cake contracts here on CC:
Contracts and consultation forms are very similar, so you can get lots of information from these postings. I know KHalstead has a good one, too, but I don't know quite where to find it (it may actually be in that thread, so I'd look through it pretty thoroughly!). Also, just Google "wedding cake order forms" and "party cake order forms" and lots of stuff shows up. Hope that will give you some leads to start with. A good consultation form, with as much detail as possible, is very important to getting an order right and making your customer ecstatic with your incredible service. The only difference between that and a contract, as I see it, is your client's signature on the bottom line!
Thank you Marianna that is a great help I spent all Sunday afternoon putting an order form together but I know I shall be tweaking it ! Lol thanks again x
