AHi there! So I'm an at home baker and stay at home mom to my 2 yr old daughter. I have the itch to expand my business but I don't know how or what to do!? I don't really have the finances to open a store but would love to! I have about 750 "likes" on my facebook page and business seems good but I want more! I want my name out there! This is my calling! Any suggestions or information would be great!! Thank you!

What is your facebook page name? I am new to cake decorating, but not new to baking, I am just curious, visiting CC member facebook pages to see what they bake and how they decorate their cakes.

First, stop taking pictures of your cakes in the box.  You want to have a good picture of your cakes.  Second, get a website.  There are tons of cheap, easy to build websites out there and they make you look more professional.  And then from there, just advertise a bit.  Opening a storefront bakery is a ton of work and a lot of startup costs.  If you are doing good now and have a young daughter I would wait until you have everything in order and have more time to commit to your bakery.  So just keep working on your cakes to improve the quality of your work and work on your business plan.

Nice cakes Make it Sweet by Mandy. I agree with @reginaherrin, especially with writing a business plan. Good luck!
