The Business of Cupcakes class - Le Beau Cake
The Business of Cupcakes class
10:30am - 4:30pm, £165
Owing to the amazing versatility that the cupcake offers, the trend for them
continues to go from strength to strength. The world of cupcakes is ever-changing,
with new designs, stockists and new equipment appearing all the time.
When Le Beau cake first started, we spent lots of time searching for answers to the
many questions of exactly 'how' to go about starting a cupcake business
from home. There were pitfalls along the way, but we will share with you our knowledge
and tips on how to avoid them so you can be confident in starting up your own business
with lots of great ideas and sound advice.
The first half of the class will cover all of the topics below (and lots more...):
Using the right recipe to produce delicious cupcakes every time.
(You will have an opportunity to taste 'Le Beau Cake' cupcakes and give your
thoughts on our recipe)
The first steps to starting your business, how to register with your local council
and what an 'environmental health inspection' of your kitchen will involve
Recommended equipment and low cost ideas for the equipment that you will need
Transporting and packing your cupcakes, and dealing with large orders;
clever (low cost) ideas that enable you to transport hundreds of cupcakes safely
Advertising tips and lots of ideas on how and where to target your advertising
Building up good business contacts in your surrounding area and how to maintain these contacts.
The ingredients that we use - and why
Posting cupcakes, couriers to use, how to package them, the boxes that you will need,
and where to get them from
Clever ideas for looking at colour schemes for your cupcakes
For the second half of the class, we will move on to the practical side of how
to create beautiful cupcakes! Using sugar paste, you will be shown how to make
simple yet effective flowers and decorations using cutters and clever techniques.
You will learn how to pipe a beautiful 'rose' swirl with buttercream, and be shown
how to use sprinkles and sparkles to get the most out of them.
You will leave at the end of the day motivated, with a box of 12 beautifully
decorated cupcakes, a copy of the Le Beau Cake recipe, and confidence in being able to
produce professional looking cupcakes.
