Do you remember...
The first one.
You know, THE cake that got you started. :)
That first one that you now are looking back with nostalgia and a bit of embarrassment.
The one with the not-so-straight edges and the bumpy fondant. ;)
Everyone liked it! :)
They even kept telling you that
you should actually start a cake business!
So you jumped on the internet watching heaps of tutorials perfecting your skills.
You had the basic tools but hey...
If you wanted to be a pro, you had to invest, right?
And so you did.
There came more supplies, paid tutorials, quality ingredients, countless cookie cutters (you can NEVER have enough) and then that awesome mixer from the hubby for Christmas.
Better oven, bigger fridge...
Along with that, there came the first "real" customers.
Ok, it was just a friend, and you just started and you were just practicing actually... so you didn't really dare to ask for too much.
Naah...You didn't want them to think that you ONLY do it for the money...
You guesstimated a price that later you realised might have covered maybe the cost of the ingredients.
Well, maybe 80% of it.
But you already had flour and eggs in the house anyway.
No big deal.
To make sure they would be satisfied, you went shopping for that Belgian chocolate.
Ah, and that awesome cutter - only to realise it was part of a set that costed 3 times as much.
But you are gonna use it later anyway...now that you are in the cake biz.
Of course you promised to deliver the cake yourself because you were happy to go the extra mile... or 10!
But they liked it, so you were happy!
So you were now a real cake-business-woman.
And then your friends referred their friends and then the relatives because your cakes were so good and you were so nice.
....... and you were sooo CHEAP!
Yeah, its feels so bad to read, right?
No one wants to be the cheaper option instead of the better option.
You make awesome cakes, no doubt about that.
You use quality ingredients and they look fantastic.
You are licensed and you even advertise yourself.
You wake up in the wee hours of morning and start baking cakes, and finish cleaning up the kitchen in the dead of night.
But hand to heart…
Are you making enough money on your cakes?

My first thought was when I've seen the price of the Ultimate Pricing Guide is "No. I can't afford this." But it immediately struck me: THIS is exactly why I desperately need this.
