Surely right now you are thinking this is crazy, that you can’t possibly make money just by baking some cake. It’s actually true though; there are several ways to make money by making cakes and cupcakes.
If you think about it, everybody loves cakes. Little kids adore cupcakes, the elderly love cupcakes and so does everyone in between. We always have room for dessert, cakes and cupcakes are used in all kinds of celebrations from weddings to birthdays, to holidays and anniversaries. Cakes are even used for good luck, such as the Mardi Gras King cake in Louisiana, where the person who finds the baby figurine in their piece of cake is king or queen for the day.
So it’s obvious that cake is a great product and can be turned into a lucrative career. Some of the fastest and easiest ways to make cake are often the most profitable. Take cupcakes for instance. If you have some good cupcake recipes, you could either have a bake sale whenever you want, or you could sell them by the dozen to friends and family, or even local businesses. If you make good cake or cupcakes, people will be lining up around the block to buy them from you.
Cakes are just the same, someone always needs a cake for a birthday party or other celebration, and sadly most of those people would buy a mass produced store bought birthday cake. Not only are they barely personalized, they can never compete with a homemade cake baked and decorated with a specific person in mind. Again, if you make good cake, you can sell it, and people will pay good money for good cake!
