Hi there! I'm new to this site and I've been turning over having a pastry shop in my head for a while. I've always done a good job on making baked goods, especially smaller things like cupcakes or small pies, and I'm a little artistic, but there's only so many things I can make in Cottage Food Law range (which means no authentic cream cheese frosting or cream puffs). Not to mention I have a moped currently and I'm trying to save up for a car so I can have more range.
My idea is that I can sell little things like cake pops, some baked donuts, 6" cakes and pies, cookies, etc. And I can deliver them on my moped. I also don't know how to price things according to flour, sugar, egg, etc. costs. Does anyone have a good "start-up" advice for me? I'm starting small so I can work up to being bigger. If you can help me, I'd really appreciate it. = ) Thank you!
