A few weeks ago I was at Michael's and I saw this book, Birthday Cakes for Kids. It was so cute I fell in love with it. Zoe and I spent an hour on the swing studying every picture. Then I had a thought: Wouldn't it be fun to have a GF/DF cake business?! I asked Zoe what she thought of the idea. She loved it.
A cottage food law was passed in Colorado this April, allowing us to sell baked goods made at home. I'm taking a class, and a test will follow, and soon I will be in business. The gluten-free / dairy-free cake business. So excited =)
In preparation for my upcoming business I've been making some cakes, inspired by the book I found. Zoe asked for this one first—the flower cake. It's a rectangular cake with regular and mini cupcakes on top.
This cake and frosting are made with my strawberry cake and frosting recipes. My other flavors will include:
Divine Vegan Fudge Cake (from this book)
Vanilla Bean Cake (from this book)
They will all be made (like this one) with India Tree NATURAL food coloring.
I'll post more cakes (like my retro car with flames cake) that I'm going to offer soon =)
I would also like to enter this cake in my friend, Iris's birthday cake challenge. Head over there to see all the other fun cakes that are being submitted. Happy 30th Birthday Iris!
