Here at The Baking Sheet, I receive many emails with questions regarding pricing, cottage laws, contracts, cancellation policies, etc.
We understand the importance of the business side of the baking industry so I am thrilled to announce that the lovely Michelle Green from The Business of Baking has accepted my invitation to be a regular contributor to The Baking Sheet!!!!
I would love for Michelle's articles to help answer some of your questions and start some interesting discussion on business topics! Whether you are thinking about starting a small cake business or already have an established bakery, there will be something for everyone!
