Just ordered this book for my wife as she has been thinking about starting a home cake decorating business for some time but couldn't quite figure out what to do first. This book is an excellent resource - it not only covers all the official and business stuff she needs to consider, but it also made her really think about what she was capable of, what she wanted from running a business and how to make the business fit in with family life etc. There were lots of fantastic resources - Templates for Terms & Conditions, Contracts, Invoices etc plus detailed information on food hygiene laws and what needs to consider and look into to legally work from home, and tons of other really useful information about taking orders and working with customers. The section on marketing on promoting her business when it's ready was really up to date and covered things like websites, selling and taking orders and payments online, right through to using facebook and twitter to reach customers. All stuff she was really unclear about before. She was initially daunted, thinking there would be tons of rules and regulations that would make baking from home difficult, but this book has broken it down into easy bite-sized chunks and now she's raring to go ! Definitely a 5***** from us. Now I'm looking forward to the extra cash she'll soon be bringing home !!

Having read other books on the same subject, I was intrigued to know if it covered anything I hadn't previously heard. Much of the content bears similarity to other books on building a cake decorating business, however it is the way it is presented that sets this book apart from others. The author has tackled every subject in layman's terms, without the waffle that others go into. A very practical and useful book that will serve as a good aid to anyone thinking, or in the process of setting up their own cake business. Highly recommend it!

I really recommend this book for anyone who is thinking of starting or has started a cake business. To the point and full of good information. I just needed someone to tell me what to do and where to find things and this book did exactly that. Information like good suppliers, mentoring, pricing was very useful!
