Class Overview

Cake Pricing can make or break a cake business and ultimately is one of the deciding factors of profitability and viability. Many bakers struggle to know how to quote their cake designs and end up undercharging, which leads to low profits OR overcharging, which leads to customers turning away. This self-paced online training will provide you with the fundamental tools in knowing how to estimate your costs, set up your bank accounts, avoid overwhelm at tax time, create systems, manage invoicing and ultimately, have a healthy money mindset so you can confidently charge for your time, effort and skills. This online training can be watched and rewatched anywhere, anytime and also comes with Downloadable Spreadsheets that can be customised for use in the day-to-day running and planning of your Cake Business.

This course is going to be such a help. I've already started doing some of these things, but now I'm working on getting a business account so that I can keep personal and business finances separate. I'm also working on figuring out all of my business expenses. I haven't officially started my business yet, so I wanted to get off on the right foot with all of these strategies. Thanks Amanda
