I've been making cakes for family as a stress relief hobby for about 2 years now. In the past 8 months or so I've had about 7 people ask me if I sell cakes because they want one for whatever event. I think about starting an at home business (but won't for a while because I have a dog and that's a no under PA's cottage food law) but I wonder about how you know when your cakes are good enough to actually sell to people? I mean, I guess if people are asking, then they're willing to buy? I always thank them for the compliment but turn them down.
And do you take your skill level in to consideration when setting prices? I've read plenty of the pricing threads on here, but I don't recall people mentioning skill level as a factor. Thanks!
