Here's the thing: going into business is not as simple as posting a "Cakes for Sale" sign in my living room window. People don't understand the true costs associated with operating a legal business (commercial insurance, rent, utilities, licensing costs, etc.). AND baking/decorating is a hobby for me...an outlet. I believe that if I baked for a living, I'd grow to hate it That's mostly because I only truly enjoy the cake decorating. I could seriously do without the baking . So then I got to thinking: "Is there a way to get someone else to do the baking for me??"
If you could outsource a large part of your baking (to a legal commercial kitchen, of course), would you?
I know bakers outsource other parts of the cake (decorations), so why not the actual cake itself? When I do cakes for friends, they want cakes that taste great, no doubt, but what they're mostly looking for is that "WOW" factor.
Just curious as to how others feel about this.
