The business side of home baking is to my mind the area where many home bakers fail and this leads to dissapointment and ultimately they give it up. In the updated version of “Bake for Profit” much more attention is given to aspects that are vital to make money from your efforts. Issues such as how to cost a recipe and to determine the right selling price are discussed in detail. A costing model shows you how to compare different recipes and to identify the most profitable options.
Finding a market for your products is another important area that is covered in detail in this book. Product promotion techniques are discussed and ideas to add value you to your products such as candy and cookie bouquets will give you the ability to compete more effectively in the market. In the recources section of the book pointers are given to draw up a business plan.
Your chances of making some real money from home baking will greatly improve with this practical guide that shows how to set up your business. A number of tried and tested recipes are also provided to set you on your way.
