My name is amber and I'm an a beginner at the whole cake decorating thing and I jus woke up one day and decided this is wut I want to do I've always been into arts and crafts and always wanted to do something in that nature for a living but I never thought of an art that could be a career and I have finally found it you may find that I ask a lot of questions and that's only because I want to be the best I can be ad learn from other cake decorators

Hey Amber! You say you’re a beginner at cake decorating, and that’s fine, but how keen are you on business aspects… bookkeeping, marketing, taxes, etc? If you’re just starting out, your best bet might be to find a job decorating cakes. You can increase your decorating talents while you learn more about how to run a business. Also, if having your own business is your ultimate goal, you should contact your local health department to find out what your options are legally for selling cakes. Some states have “cottage food laws” that will allow you to sell right out of your house; other states require you to build (or rent time in) a licensed commercial kitchen.

I know this is not a “fun” answer, but neither is getting in trouble with your local government. Keep asking those questions though, we are all here to share and learn!
