Cake Decorating Business

 In India, there are hundreds of cake shops those make and sell cakes. Here, the business idea is different from them. Cake decorating business owner is a person who himself is an expert in cake decorating and may run his business solely or in collaboration with cake shops. In the latter case, revenue generated can get shared between the cake shop owner and cake decorating business owner.

Expertise requires knowing all the nitty-gritties of cake making and decorating. This expertise can be gathered from a professional course or by working with noted chefs.
