Even if your town has a bakery on every corner, there still may be room for your cake creations because you can offer a product that s superior on many fronts You just have to determine what categories your product will be a leader in To figure out what specialties your cakes will focus on, think about what has pulled you into considering a cake decorating business and what you think makes your cakes special Use your answers to these ten questions to identify ways to distinguish your cakes from the local competition: Do you have a cake flavor that everyone loves but few have heard of Do you use imported ingredients Are your cakes made completely from scratch Are your designs singularly unique For instance, are your cakes particularly stunning or humorous or colorful in their design Do you have signature frosting colors that no one can mimic Do you use decorations that are particularly hard to find Do you use only fresh flowers in your decorations Do all your cakes include amazing marzipan creations or beautiful gum paste flowers Do greetings on the cakes feature clever and memorable wordplay Do your cakes come in interesting sizes or shapes (such as ovals and hexagons) or only one size (such as cupcakes) In organizing your business from the start, you must examine and define your cakes incomparable qualities to come up with what marketing experts call a unique selling proposition, or USP Your USP is what you know makes your cakes so different, so special, and so alluring that customers will flock to your business over others For instance, the combination of delicious, unusual cake flavors with whimsical designs was my USP My red velvet cake was often the talk of a party so much so that people often came up to me to ask if they could order one When I started making red velvet cakes in Southern California, they were (and, often, still are) quite a novelty even though they re a staple of my Southern heritage My other unusual cakes included the Bubblin Brown Sugar Cake (with a subtle caramel flavor) and the Best Carrot Cake Ever (refer to 6 for the recipe) The cakes were out of the ordinary and delicious, and people always knew that the designs would take the cake to the next level, either with artwork and words that were very specific to the celebrant, vivid colors, or a humorous rendering for the event
