How to schedule your weekly Baking Orders

Have you ever feel overwhelm, exhausted, wanting to through the towel in your home base baking business? Are you one of those Bakers that spend until 3am doing a cake the night before the delivery? If you are let me tell you that you are not the only one. The baking business is not easy but you can do some things that can help you to make your week more easy and less stressful. Plus, you wont be staying up late finishing a cake for the next day.

Please remember that what work for one person sometimes does not work for another person and that’s ok. In my case I’m a home Baker, full time job lady, Mom, Wife and more. The tips that I provide in this post are the ones that work with my weekly personal schedule. I don’t run my life around my baking business… I run and create my schedule around my family and work schedule. I just try to do the best I can so I can create that time so I can work with my cake orders each wee. My weekly schedule is like this:


Monday

• Do the shopping
• Answer all my email (Quotes, Questions…etc.)

Tuesday

• Bake my cakes
• Then wrapped the cakes and frozen them
• Can start some decorations in advance during the cooking time


Wednesday

• Create my buttercream
• Create and/or coloring my fondant
• Cover my boards id needed
• Add ribbon to boards
• -Create Cake Decorations


Thursday

• Pull cakes out, torte them and fill them
(You can let them settle for 1 hour if you want)
• Crumb the cake (first and 2nd layer of buttercream or chocolate Ganache) then save them in the fridge so they can get a hard consistency
• Cover them (with buttercream or Fondant)
• Begin the decoration of the cake if it’s is an intensive design if not can wait until next day if you want


Friday

• Cover the Cake with Fondant or Buttercream if you didn’t do it the day before.
• Decorate the cake totally
• Verify your email in case the customer sends any notification or changes in the delivery specifications


Saturday

• Final details on the cake
• Take photos of you cake at home
• Contact the Customer for any changes and deliver your Cake
• Have my MAGIC BOX (where I have anything, I need for fixing my cake in case any accident happened)
• Take pictures of your cake in the venue too… sometimes they have amazing décor and that can give you better pictures


Sunday

• In case I have an order for this day I will finalize decorating details
• Take pictures at home and at the Venue
• Contact my Customer for any change and deliver my cake
• Create my shopping list for the thing I need that week
• If you don’t have orders for Sunday …Rest !!!

 

Next I will give some Tips that can help with your weekly schedule too


• Always have separate refrigerators (one for your cakes and one for your family food) this will help to avoid transfers of smells, contamination and if I’m correct that’s a requirement by Cottage Laws in every state. (for more info I recommend to verify your Cottage laws in your State and County).
• Don’t forget to arrive no less than 30 minutes before your delivery hour…you never know if you need to deal with any situation.
• Don’t forget to bring your business cards so you can live them there for promoting yourself (free Marketing).
• Always have your hair up and look Presentable (Remember you are the face of your business and you can meet your next customer there).
• Don’t be up later than 11:00pm on Friday nights so you can be rested for the delivery next day.
• Organize your equipment and baking materials so you can have everything accessible for you… that will help with your time management.
• All communication with clients try to have them in writing. This will serve as proof in case of any situation or claim.

 

Hope this tips can help you in your weekly baking schedule… don’t forget that you are the priority #1 in your business ! Plus, always have a clear and professional communication with your clients and business partners.

 

 

 

Love,

Rachelle
