How to Open a Cupcake Shop

I’m regularly asked for advice on opening a cupcake shop.  Unfortunately, I do not own a shop and have never sold my cupcakes.  I bake cupcakes for friends and family and make money through recipe development and the advertisements that you see on this blog.

Cupcakes Take the Cake periodically offers classes in developing a cupcake business.  You may want to check their site to see if they are offering something at this time.

    Hello-
    I have been looking at this blog all day, it is so inspiring and joyful. While I am not opening a cupcake shop or store front I am planning on baking cupcakes for my cousin’s wedding in August (I am equal parts excited and terrified). Do you have any concerns or reservations to others using your amazing recipes or trying them and altering a bit? Thank you so much-Nicole

    Nicole – I’m so glad that you are enjoying the blog. You are welcome to make/alter any of these recipes. That’s why I share them. All I ask is that if you do write about them, you give credit back this blog. Good luck and let me know if I can help in any way.

    Great site Stef. I thought you may be interested in a new ebook out on the kindle. It’s called “From Scratch: A Business Story” and it follows two sisters journey starting a successful cookie and cupcake shop.

    Have a great day
