Whether your baking habit is simply for weekend projects or a potential side business, there are simple tricks that you can do to help upgrade your domestic baking game. Here are some cool tips to remember.
- It’s all about packaging.
Perhaps by now, you’ve already perfected simple basic recipes for cakes, pies, and cupcakes. Now, whether you’re giving them as gifts or selling them to friends and family, presentation trumps taste, in many cases. You need to work on your presentation skills so you can sell not only by taste but also by sight. Invest in good baking materials including designer cupcake wrappers, baked good boxes, and even ribbons and name tags.
- Leverage on social media.
Now that you’ve made some investments in your presentation and packaging, milk it by using the powers of social media. These days, it’s all about sharing on Facebook and Instagram how beautiful your foods look before you eat them. Create some social media accounts for your small baking business (or you can always use your personal one) and share your creations online.

Whether you’ve taken some basic baking classes or taught yourself how to do it yourself, there are some ways on how you can have a continuing education in baking. Check out the YouTube channels of famous baking wonders like Yolanda’s How To Cake It and learn the tricks and tips she shares generously online. Best of all, it’s free!
