How to add sparkle to your cake business
Something has been bubbling up for a while and now it is time for me to share. As I wanted to help you to see how to add sparkle to your cake business.
I am talking about getting unstuck. Forgiving yourself for things that haven’t worked out and moving forward.
And saying yes to doing things a bit differently instead.
You already know that I love our cake decorators and home bakers with a passion. And it drives me totally nuts that they may carry on playing small whilst continuing to struggle to get the success that they so clearly deserve. All because of persisting to do what has always been done and being fearful of change.
Listen – I totally get it. I was the same. But circumstances for me – meant that I could not remain stuck and pondering. I HAD to learn and learn quick.
Back story – I became a single mum of two children aged 5 and 2 – and HAD to make my cake business pay me sensibly for my time and any energy expended and not have potential customers walk away from me either.
I had to learn to sell the customers their dream cake and have them pay happily for the service.
I recently asked a lot of cake decorators what their biggest challenges were
– and here are their answers (just some of them…as I had heaps)
- Struggling with pricing
- Unsure how to price in my time
- Fed up with being paid peanuts for my work
- Wanting to know how to feel comfortable charging
- Struggling to get customers
- Belief in my abilities
- Coping with competitors
- Time management
Alongside craft challenges of…
- Getting icing consistency right
- Smooth icing
- Great edges
- Textured icing
- Travelling with cakes
I get it. I have seen many battles with these challenges throughout the last 10 years of coaching cake decorators and home bakers. But my proudest moments are when people tell me that they conquered their challenge. They have a full order book or have stopped doorstep discounts. They took my advice on board and changed what they did.
But letting fear keep us stuck – is not OK – and I do not want that for any of our cake decorating community either. And this might be you too?
This is why I am excited to invite you to our event
The Craft & Cake Business Makeover.
This is going to be run on a private Facebook page. After you reserve your spot by paying… on Friday 15th October you get invited via email to the Facebook page. Then you can settle into the group prior to the Makeover starting on Sunday.
So keep an eye out for emails from me and check your junk/spam filters too.
The price is silly cheap – as we wanted to include as many of you as possible.
The dates are Sunday, Oct 17th to Sunday, Oct 24th.
The schedule will be included in the Facebook group. Email reminders will go to people who have signed up for the Makeover too.
For those joining in the Craft & Cake Business Makeover – there will be a BONUS.
Very excited to announce this – as it is our new Cake Business Assessment.
This really highlights what is already in place for a business. And gives a Success Score too. By doing this quiz – decorators will be able to identify what they are already doing correctly – and what is the next step towards success for their business too. Invaluable information to get some insight into how to move forward and onwards and upwards too.
Why not join us sharing some of the best Cake Business strategies plus craft hints and tricks of the trade from our professionals too.
