Cupcakes are all the rage these days. Everywhere you turn, pastry chefs are turning cupcakes into works of art. The small, sweet treats pack a lot into an easy conveyance. Do you have a knack for whipping up delectable cupcakes? You may want to jump on the frosting train and open a cupcakery. If this is something you want to do, or are willing to dedicate some time to learning, then starting a cupcake business of your own could prove to be lucrative and fun.
A Passion for Baking is the Main Ingredient
We are not going to discuss how to create a business plan or deciding on a name, location, licenses, and legality. Nope, we are going to discuss the fun stuff, like the physical, tangible things you need to make the cupcakes for which people will be salivating. From muffin pans to frosting bags, spatulas to ovens, these are the toys to cook up your vision.
To Sprinkle or Not to Sprinkle
The basics needed to start a cupcake business include bakery equipment such as ovens, mixers, and baking pans and molds. Of course, decorating bags and tips will be needed to apply decorative icing to cupcakes.
For a business operating in a retail environment, display cases and cupcake stands are a must. Carryout boxes and containers are essential for both home-based and retail cupcake businesses.
From the back of the house to the front of the house, it is the smallwares you need that will have the biggest impact on your future cupcake empire.
