I would love to do cake decorating full time but also need a good income. Is it possible to do both? I live in South Africa and for me a good salsry would be in the region of R10 000 per month ( not sure how much that is in dollars but I think it is about 1000 dollars a month. Any input would be valued.
it is possible to do it in SA, depending on where you live and what type of cakes you will be doing. if you are in a smaller town that doesnt have a lot of weddings you will struggle. Im in JHB close to a lot of wedding venues so summer months I can get a good income. Also if you are going to specialise in wedding cakes its do-able, with only birthday cakes you will struggle to make that amout.
Ps also keep in mind that it is not going to happen overnight. it took me about 2 years to break into the market, so during that period dont expect top money. If possible do it as a side line until you are established.
