Hello all! So I Have been doing cakes for about a year now, I am still practicing and am by no means a pro, yet! I don't have a shop or website or anything like that. I have sold a few cakes, mostly to people from work. How do I go about selling more, getting my name out there? The people who have bought from me were impressed but have not bought since then. Just curious on how some of you got started, any ideas would be great !!!!! Thanks, K.

business cards.
networking groups.
word of mouth.
finding out what the laws are in your state about baking out of your home.

I get 90% of my orders form Yelp. Don't know if that's popular in your city or where you are, but I created a free business listing on Yelp and in no time flat my phone started ringing.

Citysearch is another one but they charge for your listing.
