Do your research
The styles and recipes are changing everyday and don’t stick to one traditional recipe you learnt. Be willing to change according to one’s needs and also uplift your skills with taking a baking class. Also, you have enough resources to check online, in books and recipe magazines to gather more inspirations. Also, don’t be afraid to come up with your own recipe as long as it tastes good and the quality is preserved. By being unique you can attract more people to your sweet cupcakes.
Develop your brand
Small though your business might be it is important you have your own brand and name for it. This is what sets you apart from other competitors. Also, check for a good web designer to translate your cupcake vision to a true website that will help you to generate sales and also attract others. It has to explain everything you need to tell them and don’t forget to take some pictures for it. Try out different cupcake styles to make it even more elegant and to create that variety.
The correct packages
One way to promote the goodness of your cupcakes is by choosing the correct type of materials for packaging. Whether you are delivering them by yourself, selling them to a local shop or even using another way, make sure the packing is safe and it keeps your cupcakes in good quality without squashing them. You can check for window boxes or even long cardboard boxes to place several in one box. Check for some designed ones with your logo. It is important that the packing is attractive.
Use social media
If you are not so interested in running your own website since you are doing this to collect some extra money then, social media would be a better option for you. Run your won page and don’t forget to snap some photos of your baking and packages. Whenever you get an order and once you have successfully completed it, post it on Facebook, Instagram or on Pinterest so everybody knows how good your work is.
