I’ve been looking at the same thing! Please tell me someone has actually purchased it and can give feedback…

I have heard a few say it is great, but would love to know if this is the consensus with most everyone who has used it.

I have always wanted it myself but can’t afford it. It looks amazing when reading about it but don’t most things? I do hope some people who have it/used it can stop in and give us feedback!

Honestly you don’t need it. You can create spreadsheets for almost anything that this software does. I had finally decided to break down and buy the software after wanting to keep up with my invoices….however, the software was not as easy to use as I had imagined and after starting to use it I realized that I could do all of the same things just by creating spreadsheets for it. I returned the software and received a full refund. I just keep a folder saved on my computer for invoices and I have created another spreadsheet just to track my actual costs for each recipe.
My advice is just to take the time to create something that is tailored for your specific needs and not spend the money on expensive software.
Just my opinion =)

Thank you oakleygirl77! I wondered about that same thing and my husband kept telling me I could get the same result if I sit down and input it all myself :)

Becky Pendergraft ...

Thanks so much, oakleygirl77!! I was wondering if you could set up similar spreadsheets with simple formulas in Excel! This confirms my suspicions!

Bakermama ...

Thanks everyone!! I might still try Cake Boss, I dont have Excel on my computer~ it’s one or the other. I’ll let you know if I do :)

Bakermama, I started using Google Documents and I really like it. There is a spread sheet app in there. All you need is a g-mail address you can set up for free and you are good to go. There’s a word document, power point app, There are 7 different applications in ‘google documents’, alone. Also: Google has a calendar. I use it to keep track of my cake orders. I can use my kindle fire and check and see if I am still available to do cakes. I was even able to book a cake a year from now. (this would also apply to an android phone!)
Best of all, it’s all free!

Tokazodo…I didn’t even know Google did that! I am definitely going to check in to that. Thanks!

Boy, I was wondering the same thing. I’ve been so tempted to buy the software because I got tired of tracking everything down on excell. But if it does exactly the same thing that I do with my excell spreadsheets then I don’t see the need to spend that money. Thank you for sharing!

I bought the software and I haven’t had time to figure it out yet either. I am hoping to get it done this coming week. All your comments make me think maybe I wasted my money though. I hope it’s what I need. I wanted something where at the end of the year I could just print out all the stuff I needed for taxes.
