Little bitty baby cakes seem to be my favourite right now. And with parties being smaller they're very popular. Finding the balance between what a customer will spend on a small cake and making sure you're still charging enough can be hard.

Here's a quick tip to take some of the time out of your work so that you can meet their budget right now without discounting yourself.

. This little lady is one of several predesinged cakes I offer. Customers are able to order from a selection right online with a quick click of a button. Product description makes all the details clear- pick your date, select your flavour, and pay. Info is listed about what additional costs would be if they wanted customization.

So what does it save me? It saves the back and forth details of designing a cake. It saves any questions about when its for, flavours etc. I also keep all the colours of fondant precoloured for each cake - so no tinting fondant while I'm making it. And I also try to make several of each design element at once. So that next time I have an order they're ready to go. Flavour selection is limited to four basic flavours that i make every week - no running around for something special.

So maybe take a flip through some of your past cakes. See what you could list as offerings to people. You don't have to even sit and design cake dummies to photograph. Work with something you've already got pictures of it and give it a go.

Last tip though- know when to cut yourself off. Little cakes don't mean there isn't any work. And it can be very tempting to take every single order that comes in. Know when you hit a point that you've taken on enough. Don't compromise quality on them or on your other custom orders.
