Feasibility of Making Money Doing This - Page 2

post #16 of 18

I would suggest being on top of what's happening with the cottage food law in your state. There's a trend towards passing very lenient legislation for cottage food bakeries across the nation. What this results in is competition from people who charge so little for their work that they are impossible to compete with if you need to make a profit. So be sure you're aware of what's going on with that. And good luck!

Market research! I'm talking sample bite size. The pricing will still be off. The point is to find out if people would seriously consider purchasing. Asking if they like it is one thing (& important valuable information). Asking how much they'd pay is a whole other.

I was not saying that at all. I was just commenting on how people in the market don't have any idea what custom cakes cost. Something often discussed on this site, how people want a custom cake and think it's only worth $30. It was meant tongue in cheek...although I never understood where that phrase came from..

If you are in a resort area, if it's near a beach, you should consider making things that will travel well in a cooler.  Also, our resort area here (Cape Cod) has the same people come back every summer for the entire summer or part of it.  Those kinds of people would make super repeat customers, but you'd have to promote yourself somehow.  Without a storefront this might be difficult.
