"If you love cake decorating, imagine getting paid to do what you love! You can when you start a cake decorating business," says Jennifer James, author of the FabJob Guide to Become a Cake Decorator, published this month by FabJob.com at http://www.FabJob.com/cakedecorator.asp.
According to Jennifer, there are many benefits when you become a professional cake decorator and start a cake decorating business (also known as a cake design business) or cupcake business.
"There's never been a better time to start up a cake decorating business," says Jennifer. "With the low-carb craze over with, there has been a return to the idea of eating for pleasure, ushered in largely by the popular book French Women Don't Get Fat." Jennifer's guide offers advice about the cake decorating business and why it's a great time to start a cake decorating business or cupcake business.
"Not only are people looking for custom, creative cakes, they are willing to pay a cake decorating business too," says Jennifer. The average amount spent on a wedding has nearly doubled in the last 20 years, and the average cost of wedding cake is $543, according to the Bridal Association of America.
There are many benefits of starting a cake decorating business, according to Jennifer. She interviewed successful cake decorating business owners and says the following are among the benefits for anyone who wants to start a own cake decorating business:
You Can Be Creative When You Start a Cake Decorating Business
"If you want to work with your hands and experience with all five senses, starting a cake decorating business is for you, from smelling the yummy baking, to tasting new flavors of icing or filling, to piping delicate beads or roses on your cakes and cupcakes. No wonder many cake decorators call themselves sugar artists!" says Jennifer.
Be Your Own Boss When You Start a Cake Decorating Business
"No more taking orders from anyone else - other than the customers of your cake decorating business, of course! When you start a cake decorating business, you make the decisions. You can choose to specialize in anything from wedding cakes, to children's birthday cakes, to cupcakes, to cakes shaped like fantasy castles... whatever you most enjoy. As boss of a cake decorating business, you decide your business policies, your cake prices, and when to take days off."
Start a Cake Decorating Business and "Let Them Eat Cake"
"By 'them' we mean you, your friends, and your family," says Jennifer. "When you start a cake decorating business you'll be able to practice your new ideas by making cakes for your own family celebrations, or liven up a mid-week meal with some cake 'leftovers' you cut off while shaping and decorating cakes for your business. You can even save some cash and give cakes for wedding and birthday presents. It's great practice, and you'll land clients for your cake decorating business whenever your cakes or cupcakes are seen and admired."
You Can Start a Cake Decorating Business Right Now
"A cake decorating business can be started simply or part-time if you wish. In many cases you can start a cake decorating business right from your own home. If you already bake cakes or cupcakes as a hobby, you may very well have much of the cake decorating equipment on hand that you will need to start a cake decorating business. You don't need a certificate to call yourself a professional cake decorator or cake designer, either - you're in business as a professional cake decorator as soon as you are paid for your very first cake."
"If you're ready to tap into the lucrative and growing cake decorating business, don't wait any longer. It's time to turn your pipe dreams into piping bags, trade in your overtime for oven mitts, and create your own sweet success story by starting a cake decorating business," says Jennifer.
