OK, I'll answer #1 for ya.

Some questions that I ask clients are:

1.  When do you need this cake for (date/time) and where is the place of delivery?

2.  How many servings do you need?

3.  Do you have a particular design in mind; do you have pictures, etc?

4.  What is your budget?

5.  How did you find me ( I keep track of my referrals)?

Once I get the basics, I can come up with a price quote and if they decide to go further and pay their deposit, we move on to cake flavors and minor things like that.  

Hope that helps ya some :)

Hi Tinychef, I'm in Australia too, as K8memphis said the answers to your questions are quite complex.  We regularly take Year 10,11,12 students in our kitchen for work placement and I have helped out with information for both Hospitality and Business Study students doing their HSC.  If you are interested you can PM me and I will send you my email address.  There are so many people operating illegally in my area, this is my way of helping the next generation of professionally trained pastrycooks and business owners into our industry.

      What sort of questions do you ask your customer/clients when making a cake?

Date needed; amount of servings needed; what style of decorations.....and much more

-          What are some FAQ’s?

Can you make ???  One lady wanted the Taj Mahal (I know that probably not spelled right!)

-          What are some factors that you consider when making a specialist cake for a client?

Flavor, date and time, and location where needed.  Will they pick up or must it be delivered?  What else is already on my calendar for that date.

-          What are the key elements to creating a specialist cake for a client?       ...........-          What are the main or common problems of making a specialised cake for a client? 

Basically the same as the answers already stated.
