cake business class

This class is for students who have been thinking about setting up their own cake business and want an overview of the requirements and process. You will learn how to avoid common pitfalls, and top tips from a tutor that has had her own hugely successful cake business for many years.

We will cover everything including registering as a food business, insurance, hygiene certificates, allergens, pricing, deposits, contracts, branding, social media and where to buy supplies. There will be a Q&A session at the end too so you will be welcome to ask questions about any topic you can think of.

You'll also be given a folder full of essential documents and templates to take away with you.
