I'm just starting out in my cake making and decorating business and need examples of what I should include in my consultation forms. For example, sponge type, customers budge, cake size, style and so forth. I really would appreciate some advice, thank you icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

Hey...I am in the same boat as you. I've been looking online at different forms and of course nothing is what i like. I figure may have to make my own. But I did find these site that will probably be my inspiration: and

If you make your own you can put what you want it. Hope this helps out a little bit

Here's a link to a forum thread on cake contracts here on CC:
Contracts and consultation forms are very similar, so you can get lots of information from these postings. I know KHalstead has a good one, too, but I don't know quite where to find it (it may actually be in that thread, so I'd look through it pretty thoroughly!). Also, just Google "wedding cake order forms" and "party cake order forms" and lots of stuff shows up. Hope that will give you some leads to start with. A good consultation form, with as much detail as possible, is very important to getting an order right and making your customer ecstatic with your incredible service. The only difference between that and a contract, as I see it, is your client's signature on the bottom line!
