The transition from hobby to business

When starting a new cake or baking business, most people usually transition after a period of baking for fun—as a hobby—and then slowly transition into a business.

Often time it usually looks like this. You make a lot cakes cookies or other baked goods just for fun. It’s a hobby that you enjoy and you like showing off and sharing your work.

Then family, friends, and coworkers ask for an order—and then it happens.

Your first cake order

You get your first order….it’s your first wedding cake! At this point is usually when people start to panic and then try to put the process and procedures in place to build their business. 

You can save yourself a lot of headaches and time if you just take 1-2 months and take action to build your business. Trying to figure everything because you have your first large order creates frustration, confusion, and chaos.
