I am new here and looking into getting some insights from all of you pro's.
Here's my dilemma. I just started my home based business in creating cakes and cupcakes in our community. I usually use DH for all of my cakes and cupcakes and so far, it's been a hit. But, I kinda feel that I am cheating because I am not doing it from scratch. My cake decorating instructor told me that mostly, people don't know the difference if the cake is box or scratch especially if you add some flavoring i.e. instead of adding water to chocolate mix; you add orange juice to make it chocolate orange cake, So here's what I want to know from all of you:
1. Does any of you own a business and use box mix?
2. Is it much cheaper to use mix or more economical from scratch?
My husband says always says to me 'If it ain't broken, don;t touch it'. So far, my chocolate cakes, mocha cupcakes are selling really well but still feel guilty about not doing it from scratch.
Your opinions and comments would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much!
