I've just started a private cupcake making business at home and have decided that the best way to start selling is at our local Farmer's Markets on Saturdays. Any advice for how a 21yr old can kick-start a business like this when the competition can be tough??
My approach is organic and I don't use artificial alternatives so I'm thinking this is good because it will encourage people to use my healthier methods without eliminating taste. What do you think? :)

I'm a self - Taught Baker and Mother of 3 trying to get my name out! I love the artistry that goes into cakes and I hope one day to have a few Cake Charities under my wing. I grew up the custody of the state of Virgina and I know just how hard the kids in the system have to work in order to receive the same opportunities as every other child. I would love support in starting a national Cake Auction someday where bakers everywhere unite for the same cause...Saving the World One Cake at a time! Every baker donates a cake regionally to be auctioned with all proceeds going to the most deserving and financially needy charities nationwide, and beyond ! Kind of like OSASS but as a Charity! Of course I've never been in a competition (and I'd love to be in a competition) but I'm still Young yet and I will not give up until my mark has been made on the Cake World! I hope you will look at my self taught homemade cakes. I have been inspired by the cake boss but I have devoted myself to trying new recipes and stretching the limit with Flavors in Cake and my own hand in following art. My one Cake accomplishment was earlier this summer when I was able to give Paula Deen a "Butter" Cake!

Hi Jessie! We love your blog! It's incredibly creative! You are quite the artist! On the subject of fabulous treats, my wife used to be a professional baker and baking has always been her passion! A few years ago she developed a severe gluten allergy, a nightmare for a baker! So, she decided to use her talents showing others with gluten allergies how to create gluten free foods even better than those with gluten! I think you'd particularly love one of her sensational lemon cupcake recipe and photos, http://www.gimmeglutenfree.com/2011/05/double-lemon-gluten-free-cupcakes.html. Not long ago, the Sammamish Review did a story on her and her website too!, http://sammamishreview.com/2011/05/03/tasty-gluten-free-beer-bread. Jessie, best wishes for a joyous new year with lots of delicious sweet treats!
