I did it!!

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
So a few months ago, I was on here bumming around because my DH told me that I couldn't make cakes anymore unless I started charging, and I obviously didn't want to start an illegal business. So after thinking about it awhile, I decided, why not? Everyone loves my cakes, and always asks me if I would sell them...So I went and got my license, sent off for my tax packet (arrived today!), and scheduled my inspection ( for this Tuesday!). SO EASY! It only took one day and $39 to set everything up. I ordered cake dummies, so that I can practice some more and beef up my gallery (which should be in this week). I spent the week working on a website (www.cake-a-doodle-do.com), and I am pretty stinkin excited. I just wanted to share my little happy dance with yall, and see if you have any advice. How do you advertise? How do you get search engines to notice you? What other great tips do you have for me as I'm starting out? I just love this site, and I appreciate the willingness to share that you all possess!

You must be flyin' high right now! I'd love to sell cakes eventually, but not until we move to another house. In the meantime, I'll keep practicing in my tiny kitchen and learn all I can.

Enjoy the excitement of your new adventure. Sounds like you're off to a great start. icon_biggrin.gif

Let me edit, I spent $39 on the legalities (license, registering my name, etc.)... I've spent $$ on other things (website, dummies, business cards, etc.) not to mention the money I've spent over the years piling up pans and supplies. icon_smile.gif As for my DH, he has been wonderful and I'm so lucky to have him. icon_smile.gif

Cute name, cute website - Congratulations!

Not sure if it is just my computer/monitor settings or not, but I thohght it worth the mention.

When I was on your website, I have to scroll left/right to see the whole page when viewing at 100%. If I drop my view down to 75% it seems to be ok (but the text is harder to read due to size)

Again, Congratulations.
