Home-based cake business

Jackie can help you become a licensed home-based cake business.

 

The coronavirus lockdown has stirred many entrepreneurs into setting up home-based businesses and some councils have even waived set-up fees as the icing on the cake.

Jackie was the first home-based cake business in Logan almost 10 years ago.

 

Attend one of her courses on how to achieve a food license and get a tour of her home licensed kitchen as well as her cake studio, to see what is required.

Anyone living in Logan that want to start a home-based baking cake business? now is the time.
At the moment Logan City Council is wavering all-new licensing fees before August 2020 and so now is the best time to do this. The fees are usually $721.00 + $799.00 total of $1520 for Pastry and Bakery license.

Brisbane City Council is also offering discounts.
I was the first to be Logans food licensed for cakes over 10 years ago. I battled with Logan City Council to be allowed to have a baking business from my home kitchen, with no commercial modification. I met with town planning questioned all of their costs, material change of use for my home, yet it was not being demolished and rebuilt for townhouses? It cost several thousand but I was persistent as the council back then was in the dark ages for home businesses. I now have a separate cake studio in my garden where I also teach, but my domestic kitchen is approved to use too.
I have proudly achieved a 5-star rating consecutively for the last 6 years since it was introduced.

Would you like some help to do the same? Is now the time you want to take a hobby to a home business?

I have been offering assistance with home-based licensing for the last 6 years and offer a home inspection for $550 which takes 3 hours and will assist you in the application forms, floor plans, advice of what is required and also help you set up what you will need when you get your first inspection for approval with the council. I can assist you with a cleaning schedule and programme and give you the very best advice to achieve a 5-star rating, which I have achieved over the last 6 years since it started.
I also offer a second course on how to run a home-based business. All info is available on our website.

Our Reviews Why You Should Attend

Snippets of feedback from attendees

Thank you for your information yesterday Jackie , I could have listened another 3 hours!....... I felt empowered and more knowledgeable after the session and most of my questions were answered.  The notes given were great as it is a lot to absorb in an evening and allows you to listen rather than half listen and write notes at the same time.

Did you leave knowing you have been informed of the options that are available and different strategies in running your business?

Absolutely, it was completely worth attending....... I appreciate you being open and honest and helping out people like me............. Did I overload you with too much information in the one session?

I didn't feel overloaded. I felt saturated with information that I was able to process for days after...............It was very relevant and despite not wanting a home based business the discussions easily related to my ideas as well, being a commercial factory setup.

Did the folder and the printed information and templates help as we went through the various stages Yes, it was written very clearly and logically........

Would you recommend this workshop to any other cake decorators and why?  Absolutely – you gave me all the answers I was looking for and then more on top of that so thank you so much.  I have already recommended this course........

Diannas feedback

Thank you for attending the business workshop and I was wanting some feedback of your experience.

What were your reasons in attending the workshop?

I have been trying to decide what to do with my future. Despite having run a very successful business for 21 years and having the last five years off I was feeling a little lost.

I needed to decide if my passion for cake making and decorating was going to be more than just  a hobby. I went along to your information session to work out what was involved to make my hobby a business venture.

Did you leave knowing you have been informed of the options that are available and different strategies in running your business?

I felt empowered and more knowledgeable after the session and most of my questions were answered.  The notes given were great as it is a lot to absorb in an evening and allows you to listen rather than half listen and write notes at the same time.

Was it relevant to you and your business?

It was very relevant and despite not wanting a home based business the discussions easily related to my ideas as well, being a commercial factory setup.

Did the folder and the printed information and templates help as we went through the various stages?

The folder was and is great for future reference.

Was the 3 hours too long?

We ended up being there for 4 hours and I could have stayed longer but I had an hour-long drive so the timing was perfect. We were spoilt, as there was only one other participant so we had a one on one session.

Did I overload you with too much information in the one session?

I didn't feel overloaded. I felt saturated with information that I was able to process for days after.

Would you recommend this workshop to any other cake decorators and why?

I would definitely recommend this to anyone thinking about going into this type of business.  I am booked in to the cake decorating class next week as I found Jackie to be very professional and passionate. She also has the most amazing setup that makes you want to bake and decorate.
