Something like "Ace of Cakes" i want to make awesome cakes like that but i need to know how much its paid. I live in California by the way. I want to be the owner though.

Details:

  1. 1,0000,00000000
  2. It depends on where you work and whether you're the owner or not. It also depends on your skill level...you won't make much if you're just starting out with no experience and no portfolio of cakes you've made. I looked on Craigslist at cake decorating jobs in California and the ones that listed an amount said they paid between ten and twelve dollars an hour. The others all said it depended on experience. To own a bakery, you have to pay rent, utilities, buy equipment, get a food handling license, etc...it's definitely not impossible but it's not cheap either. Your ability to charge for a cake will depend on what area you're in, your bakery's reputation, and how many other bakeries are in your area and what they charge. It will also depend on the taste of your cakes and how reliable you are. The bakery that does Ace of Cakes has a $1000 minimum cake order...but most other bakeries can't afford to do that. There are some really, really talented cake artists in California already...they just haven't had the publicity that Charm City Cakes has had from the Ace of Cakes show.
