I think you're right then....if the $$ is there, and they're spending it with someone, it might as well be YOU! ADVERTISE!

I couldn't agree more. I offered cakes cheaper for people at work who had small children with birthday parties. The parents at the parties wanted to have the same kinds of cakes and wanted to know who made the cake! I didn't make any money (actualy lost money) on these cakes, but I think it will pay off in the end. (I don't think you make any money for many years! hahaha)

btw, I love your cakes!

I would just like to say that your cakes are gorgeous! thumbs_up.gif I think it takes time and effort to build up clientel especially if you are working out of your home. I agree with antonia74 that a lot is word of mouth. Keep giving out those business cards! Also...I think certain months are just busier than others.

Keep up the great work! icon_smile.gif
