That's adorable! I would say $2.75 per cupcake, total. I charge by the cupcake as opposed to the extra stuff.   It's best to buy box in bulk and bling at dollar store, but I see where you could not find them when you needed them most!
I bet something is off with the new baking soda and powder you bought.  Sometimes even if it's fresh on the label it might not agree with your oven.  Maybe try a different brand or change the ratio.
Hire someone to do your dishes and cleaning and the basic front desk stuff.   I think that is great, don't be afraid, just let yourself be confident!  Experience will be your teacher.  You are young and have lots of time to correct mistakes you may make along the way.  Having your parents for support will also make all the difference in the world.   If you are a talented decorator, have already been successful with a customer base and are passionate, you have the 3 most...
Okay…here's the deal.     Navy blue icing/fondant will turn people's poop green.  Not to be disgusting but that's the only way to put it.   If your customer wants her party attendees to freak out when they are pooping green, awesome.  If not, I suggest a better color, perhaps with touches of navy blue.  Because according to Dr.Oz, poop is supposed to be brown.   I know this because I made my husband a navy blue Ole MIss football helmet cake.  It was delicious but….
Perhaps I am getting old and the new generation will no longer consider grammar necessary.  Except the C-level hiring managers are my age right now, so maybe it matters a little.   I tested out of English in college as well, thank God, because I can't write essays about books to save my life!  I can write angry letters and sales proposals, but an analysis of Shakespeare on my part would have been awful.   At some point I am going to volunteer to teach ESL.  I want the...
I don't think she is reading anymore, but copycats are super annoying.  Cake designs are not proprietary but pictures of cakes certainly should be!     Everyone reading please take this with a grain of salt, or sugar, or flour, or whatever…or disregard if it upsets you.     I do not wish to judge, and I am sensitive to those arriving in the US needing to learn English and struggle with our language.  However, surviving in a business where you will be dealing with...
It's a cute cake.  I agree the buttercream could be made smoother, but that will come with time.  if you want to try baking for people, you can keep it simple by practicing on friends, family and friends of friends and family.  Easy enough to legalize your kitchen if allowed in your county.  You will know if the business is for your or not if you start small.  I did it this way and I am so glad I stayed small…my day job is far more fun!
Yay Ellavanilla!  That cover makes me want a cake from you!
Bob Diamond's daughter (the fired investment banker in the UK)  recently held a wedding for his daughter.  He spent several million on it and she had a naked cake, of all things…   I actually did not care for the $200,000+ dress or cake myself, I feel several million dollars on a wedding could have been better spent.  Also, not sure of the need to impress others by spending excessive money on something…although I'm sure his guests had a great time at the wedding.  I'm...
Are you sure all of the FB businesses you see are not legit?  I have a FB page… Some are legit and their cakes are cheap, they shouldn't be but they are…
