Here are the 3 most important things you must know to be a successful cake business owner.

Marketing

Marketing is the No.1 thing you must know for success in your cake. If your customers do not know you or they do not know that you sell cakes, then you will make no money.

Marketing is important because it helps you sell your cakes.

The main aim of any business is to make money and marketing is the most important way to reach that end goal.

Without you constantly marketing your cakes or brand, your cake business will not exist because it is you telling people about your business that ultimately what your sales.

Yes you may be the best baker in the world, but if you do not market, your business will fail

You need to regularly find creative ways to reach new customers and draw them in so they can buy from you. Marketing is also important for your business growth.

In essence, Marketing helps bring in sales so that you can make the income you need from your business.

The Only 3 Things You Need To Know To Succeed In Your Cake Business, Baking Business School

Pricing

Many bakers struggle with pricing their cakes. They do not know how to price their cakes, what amount to charge their cakes, how to set prices and so on. That is why we see a lot of those questions in baking platforms where bakers post a picture of a cake and ask how much to charge. The simple but frustrating answer is that no one can tell you how much you should charge. 

As a business owner, you should know how much your time is worth when making a cake.

I know setting prices can be  is one of the most difficult things to set up in your business because pricing can depend on many factors such as your location, the types of cakes you sell, the type of customers you have, your local market and perhaps what your competitors charge.  However, if you want to know how to price your cakes right, you must first have a solid understanding of your own costs.

So how do you cost your Cakes?

Expand your Knowledge

Never and I mean never stop learning. To be more successful you should always be learning something new every day.

Do you know that Bill gates reads 50 book a year? This is a billionaire and yet he still reads. So what is your excuse?

This year I made a deliberate effort to read more, at least 1-2 books a month and to learn something new every day. I subscribe to a lot of educative material so they send me emails every day. I also take online courses from time to time and I go for workshops. This last weekend I went for a personal finance master class.

We only have 24 hours a day but if you track your time, we spend some time just doing nothing, you can read a few chapters from a book, watch a tutorial on you tube, take an online course. The list is endless.

Try and do something aside from working on your business on your personal development.

Here are some of the things I do to expand my knowledge

  1. Read something everyday
  2. Learn from a mentor
  3. Take an online class
  4. Attend a workshop on a subject you don’t know anything about
  5. Subscribe  and read emails from blogs where they post a lot of educative material, e.g Baking Business School
  6. Surround yourself with people who know more than you

How To Find Your Niche In Your Cake Business

What is a niche? A Niche denotes or relates to products, services, or interests that appeal to a small, specialized section of the population.

So why is finding a niche so important for your cake business?

Everyone loves cakes and that helps make it a growing market, which is good, but when you are just starting out in this business, this can be a problem.

So in order to make your cake business known in a rather crowded market, you need to find your niche.

Discovering your niche will help you set yourself apart from the competition.  This enables you have a clear area to focus on, to set a target customer base, plus it will help your customers know what you sell, which will help maximise your profits.

You might think that your customers are everyone. But if you think everyone is your customer, you are wrong. Because if you are selling to everyone, you are actually not selling to anyone.

But what niche should you choose, well that is up to you and what is your passion.

To find your niche, try and see where your strength are, are you really good at something. For example if your are really good at making toppers, you can specialise in that and supply bakery stores. Also think about what is in demand in your area.

Baking Business School, How To Find Your Niche In Your Cake Business

To help you I have listed different Cake Niches and then sub divided it further to more specialist areas:

Fondant/Sugarpaste Modelling

  • Wedding cake toppers
  • Toppers for birthday cakes
  • Character toppers
  • Fondant Flowers
  • Fondant Figurines
Baking Business School, How To Find Your Niche In Your Cake Business

Wedding Cakes

  • Buttercream tiered wedding cakes
  • Trendy wedding cakes
  • Naked wedding cakes
  • Square wedding cakes
  • Weddings with sugar roses or real flowers
Baking Business School, How To Find Your Niche In Your Cake Business

Birthday Cakes

  • Baby birthday cakes
  • Baby Shower cakes
  • Cartoon birthday cakes
  • Glamorous birthday cakes
  • Novelty birthday cakes
  • Birthday cakes for men/women/boys/girls
Baking Business School, How To Find Your Niche In Your Cake Business

Cupcakes

  • Full sized cupcakes
  • Mini cupcakes
  • Printed cupcakes
  • Muffins
  • Corporate cupcakes

And the list goes on and on.

Once you have discovered your niche you will find life becomes a little easier. Instead of catering for everyone you can target one particular segment.

This will instantly help you market your business more effectively speak your customer’s language, you know the particular product you are selling, and you know a defined target customer.

Baking Business School, How To Find Your Niche In Your Cake Business

Let me give you instances of two bakers’, and try and spot the difference. And see which one appeals to you more?

Bose Cakes & Bakes – This baker creates cakes for everyone, for all types of occasions, birthdays, christenings, baby showers, weddings, retirements, charity events and much more. She does it, Bose wants to attract every type of person, but there is only one of her. She works all hours, takes last minute orders, hardly makes a profit, has no business style and is so stressed.

Vs.

Sweetie’s Specialty Cakes  – This baker creates novelty cakes exclusively for big birthday celebrations.  She is focused; she understands the type of cakes she likes to make, so she can charge a premium sum.

 If you want a wedding cake, she will turn you down and recommend you to another cake maker.

Sweetie books cakes into her diary months and even years in advance. She turns a healthy profit and her future’s looking bright.

In short finding your niche will help your business have focus, you will be able to charge a premium and ultimately it will help you climb the ladder of success.  So get out there and find your niche!

So what’s your niche? Have you found it yet? Comment below. Will love to hear from you.

Business Structures to have In your Cake Business (part 2)

I am continuing my post from last week on the structures you should have in place to have a successful cake business. In case you missed the first 6, you can read them here. Now lets get to it.

Financial Books

Keep track of your ingoings and outgoings.

Since you’re running your own business, you need to keep track of your income and your business expenses so that you can enter this information into the necessary financial books so you will know whether you are making a loss or profit. 

Well there are 3 essential books you should have in your Cake Business where you will input information such as records of money coming in and out and they are:

  • The Profit and Loss Statement,
  • the Cash Flow Statement and
  • The Balance Sheet

These are the 3 primary financial statements used to assess a company’s performance and financial position.

Baking Business school, Business Structures for your cake business

Business Plan

Develop a business plan. Everyone always wants to skip this part and get straight to the baking, but it is really and truly important.

Think of a business plan as simply a list of questions on a form or a template. It makes you think of questions that you may have or have not considered like

 How much does your product cost you to make, and how much do you want to sell it for?? Where will you sell? How will you market yourself? Is there demand for your cakes in your area? How much competition will you have? How do the competition’s products compare to yours in price and quality? How long will it take to turn a profit?  

Your business plan will tell you whether or not your business is even profitable.

It’s worth it to make a plan, rather than bang your head against a wall for months wondering why your business isn’t working. 

By having those questions and answers in front of you, it can help you map the way forward for your business and help you define your goals in real terms and it is something to refer to when your business starts to grow.

Baking Business school, Business Structures for your cake business

Social Sites

For your cake business you should develop an online presence.

You make a product that looks beautiful, so photographs are going to be key.

Set up a simple website with important details like what you do, where you’re based, and how people can place an order, and add plenty of mouth-watering photos. There are tons of website builders to choose from, including WordPress, or Wix.

Also set up a Twitter account, a Facebook page, and an Instagram account for your business, and keep them updated with posts and photographs. It’s also important to interact with other people on social media, so spend a few minutes each day liking and commenting on other people’s posts, and following relevant accounts.

To help in your marketing efforts, you should Set up a website and Facebook page for your business marketing. Quite a lot of marketing on Facebook can be achieved for free or at least very inexpensively.

The importance of a professional looking web site is that people will be able to find you more easily and your business will appear more professional. Also with sites like Facebook and Instagram you can display a gallery of your cakes and also give details of how potential customers can contact you.

Baking Business school, Business Structures for your cake business

Business Cards

You should always your business cards with you. when you are out and about marketing or just going on with your life.

Baking Business school, Business Structures for your cake business

Unique Selling Position

Think about standing out. There’s a large number of baking and cake making businesses out there, so you need to think about how you’re going to differentiate yourself.

What is your unique selling proposition or USP.

A USP is the reason why your baked  products are different from the rest. What makes your customers prefer you more than the other bakers.

Your USP is the reason why your customers decide to order from you and why they decide to remain with you.

Think about something in your business that makes it different from the rest. Your business is unique; it has its own personality. So think about what makes you distinct and special. Do you make awesome cupcakes or your cakes are fat free. You could specialise in vegan and/or gluten-free or fat free bakes, for instance, or concentrate on children’s party cupcakes or wedding cakes.

Take a few moments and think on this.

Baking Business school, Business Structures for your cake business

Develop a Marketing Strategy

You need to market your business.

People need to discover your wonderful cakes, so it’s important to think about marketing strategies. Of course you can use social media to reach potential customers, but you can think of other ways.

If you’re specialising in wedding cakes, you may be able to put flyers in a wedding dress shop, or develop a relationship with a local wedding venue.

Here are a few examples of some marketing strategies you can employ for your cake business:

  • Use Facebook advertising.
  • Word of mouth
  • Create fliers
  • Offer an opening special
  • Attend local events

That is it, the business structures you should have in place in your cake business.
