I'm still trying to figure out what wedding-related business I should get into (I posted a while back about custom gum paste flowers and have gotten great advice and feedback from you guys ... thanks!).
Here's another idea I had ...
Instead of renting out your cake stands, would you consider buying a "disposable" cake stand or plateau that is custom made to match the design of your cake? Of course, you would have to mark this up for your brides/customers, but with the right customer, this should be a nice upsell, right?
This is the service that I'm thinking about providing to local custom cake makers in my area. This way, you wouldn't have to worry about getting equipment damaged or having to pick up the stand or following up with the bride to return the stand. I'm only planning to sell to businesses, not to brides and hopefully gain repeat clients that way.
thanks again in advance!
