Why don't you do it out of your home first,see how much you make. Then go from there

The only specialty place I have heard about is the one in Bristol. Volunteer Parkway close to the Viking Hall turn off.

We already have a cake specialty shop, The Bonnie Kate cafe does specialty cakes. Wedding, birthday what ever special occasion. Or just want a blueberry cake that is wonderful.

Of course! I need a birthday cake right now...I want something professional looking, not homemade. I have looked for 2 days on the internet..I think I have finally found a lady. So, Yes to your question, I think it is a great idea.

Sounds like someone is afraid of some competition.

I think your idea is wonderful. If its something you desire and love to do you can be good at it! I'm looking for a Lady Bug cake for my daughters 1st Birthday in June. I have the cake I want made but dont know of anyone that can make it. I think if you work hard at it, you can achieve it as long as you dont charge a fortune!

You can give it a try, but you are going to have people wanting bargains. Once you know how much time and labor it takes to make a cake, you will figure out you are giving your time away.

We need a bakery, that makes real bread, and danishes and goodies, a place to have a cup of coffee and a sweet and enjoy.

Give it a go, but you just won't be able to charge what it will take to make a business a success. There is a high end cake maker in the area, and the cakes start at about $40.00 a cake, just the cake. I don't think folks here will pay $40.00 for a specialty cake.

Good luck and I hope you find your nitch and make millions.
