Cakechaos (love the name!!) Everything I keep reading, which is mainly US based, says that people are still spending on things like coffee, and cupcakes, because they are relatively small spends that make them happy and take their minds off the doom and gloom!
Hi Fairycakes - love that too. CakeChaos is pretty much how I feel at the moment, but it is happy and almost organised chaos.
I would be happy with the small spends to begin with but hoping to get some bigger spends in the not too distant future - maybe we can all keep the economy going between us. Imagine the headlines 'Cakes and CupCakes save the world'.
Hi Cake Chaos
Yes I've got both insurances, it's peace of mind on one hand but on the other if you mess up someones wedding day I don't hink insurance will make a whole lot of difference... it scares the life out of me.
Where are you? It would be lovely to know a cake decorator near by and I'm sure there's enough business for us both... we could dominate Yorkshire I'm in Bailiff Bridge, between Halifax and Huddersfield.
I was amazed that the orders started coming once I published my prices. I have kept them slightly lower than average as I'm still very much learning but still at £50 for a fairly basic 9" it's not cheap. I find it really helps having my prices on my website as then people know what to expect I get really shy talking about prices. The only problems are the 'favours' friends ask ... but hey ho.
Hi Just Darling
I have checked out some insurance and think I am gonna go with BSG which offers a good package - for now anyway. I haven't really done many weddings but I know what you mean - I wonder if it ever gets any easier?
Prices arrrghhhhhhhhhhhhh. thats all I have to say on that!!!!!! I almost feel like I have to apologise for asking for any money at the moment but I fully intend to 'harden up' a bit.Where am I?
I wonder that most days myself along with who am I and what am I doing?
I am sort of mid way between Wakefield, Barnsley and Pontefract, so am not that far away - as for dominating Yorkshire yayyy I am all for that - just need to get all my necessities in place first and off we go........
