Thanks, y'all! I guess I should add that I've "been in buisiness' for almost 3 years now...have a very successful business doing lots of wedding cakes, party cakes, and sugar cookies. Already had a very solid customer base, belong to professional organizations, and have all of the decorating tools one would need, etc. but have been renting space. I'm soooo glad I waited and did it this way- it would be so scary to think of starting out without all of that in my favor. So if you're brand new to the art- don't jump out and start something without putting in some serious time in a rental kitchen. Renting was not the most ideal situation, but I'm sooo glad I did!
