1.    Register With Your Local Councillor

Go on a food hygiene training course. You can do these courses online and sometimes they are offered for free through local councils.

2.  Register Your Premises

Another regulation to be aware of when you are starting your cake business is that you need to register your premises with the local authority's environmental health service at least 28 days before you start trading. This doesn't cost you anything and your registration can't be refused. Someone will come to your home and check your food preparation area.
It's always best to get advice from your local environmental health authority if there's anything you're not sure about.

 Keep pushing yourself to learn new skills and make sure you have the right skill set. The best people to test your cakes on are friends and family; they are also very good at spreading the world about your new cake business.

4.   Get Some Good Recipes Behind You

I have always loved baking so I have some recipes I've developed over time. I tend to stick to only offering a few flavour options but I'll do something a bit different on request, especially if it's dietary requirement. Also, spend sometime sourcing ingredients and then if you shop around you can save lots of money.

5.  Think about standing out

There are large number of baking and cake making businesses out there, so you need to think about how you're going to differentiate yourself. You could specialise on children's party cupcakes or wedding cakes.

Since cakes are difficult to transport, you need to have a good sense of your local market, as most of your customers need to be close enough for in-person delivery or collection.

6.  Packaging and Decorations   

It's important that you find reliable suppliers for your cake boxes, bases, stands and decorations. Spend a bit of time sourcing a good supplier and it will potential save you lots of money.

7.  Develop an online presence

You make a product that looks beautiful, so photographs are going to be key.

Set up a simple website with important details like what you do, where you're based, and how people can place an order, add plenty of mouth_watering photos. Building a website is  key to marketing your business and it's the easiest place for potential customers to see picture of your cakes.

8.   Use Social Media

It's a great way of spreading the word about your business. Twitter, Instagram and Facebook are free and easy-to-use for marketing tools.

9.  Market your business

 People need to discover your wonderful cakes, so it's important to think about marketing strategies. As well as going to local events with your cakes and using social media to reach potential customers think of other ways.

10.  Know Your Numbers Or Get An Accountant

One of the most important things is to work out your pricing structure. It needs to be realistic and take into account your time. Don't under price, you are better off starting higher and lowering as it is easier than putting your prices up when you realise you aren't charging enough.

I think with these guide, you will be able to start a cake baking business from your home.... 

Best of luck!!!
