Proper costing is the key to baking business success

If you are a Baker or Bakerette who wants to get into the baking business; or you have been selling your cakes or pastries from home but you’re struggling with how to actually price properly, then this class is a must for you. This is the only way you will grow and be successful in your business; by knowing how to find out the actual cost of making your baked goods and then finding out how you should set a price. If you don’t know how much it’s costing you and you’re setting a price by copying other bakers or estimating; you could be making a loss that will affect your business and possibly cause business failure over time. This means you have to sit down; find out how much it’s costing you to bake your cakes. Then you can price your cakes, cupcakes & other baked goods correctly.
