Dear flipflopgirl, laurelulu, canele and panini:

Thank you for your generous words of encouragement and praise.Would I be able to use your comments in any written material I may use to advertise a business should I decide one day to open one? And BTW panini thank you for the idea about making the doves silver, I bought the sliver leaf ($25 for 24 sheets) and taught myself how to apply, ruining 3 sheets in the process..ha!

your work looks great. 

 

We had a similar conversation with a new hire the other day, just graduated from culinary school.

 

She did a wedding cake for a friend, and thought it should be $1000 at least, and we would have priced it around 400...

 

Most people start out in the decorating/cake industry and do side work for friends, family, neighbors. everyone does it. the advice we gave her is cover your materials. You are getting practice at this point, learning and growing ( applying silver leaf). 

 

Bottom line staring out, cover your costs, make the customers happy, earn more business.
