My name is Steph and I am totally new to the world of cake business. I started playing about with cupcakes last year after seeing and being inspired by the beauty of the cakes made by “Carina’s Cupcakes”. After having some really positive feedback from friends and colleagues (my day job colleagues) I am seriously considering going further and starting a part time cupcake business – mainly in a quest to satisfy my urge to make cupcakes and cover the costs of the things I keep buying (I have developed a serious equipment buying addiction :o ))…. It will also hopefully mean my beloved will stop thinking I am trying to bankrupt both of us!!!
I am currently in the process of getting my kitchen registered with the local council and registering with HRMC. I am also working on my Level 2 food hygiene certificate and will arrange some public liability insurance for when I am ready to go. From there I would like to set up a face book page in my chosen name (Calliope Dreams Cupcakes), however I am really nervous is this is norma?? :o)
I know you are all incredibly busy, however is anybody is able I would really appreciate it if you are able to give me some general advice about taking the plunge into the world of cake making as a part time business (need to keep the day job unfortunately!!) and the pot holes and pit falls that I need to look out for/consider.
If anybody is able to help or advise I would be really grateful. :o) xx
