Dear Cupcake Entrepreneur,
Have you noticed how popular cupcakes are these days?
Cupcakes are everywhere - gracing the pages of glossy gourmet magazines and covered with sprinkles, gumdrops and glitter. We also see them towering in stacks that replace the conventional wedding or birthday cake and even being served up in restaurants as the solo star dessert on a five star menu.
In New York City people are paying up to FIVE DOLLARS just for ONE "boutique" cupcake. Now that is what I call a great ROI (return on investment!)
Nowadays Designer Cupcakes come injected with every kind of filling imaginable - jams, jellies, creams, puddings. You can even find them filled or iced with ice-cream or leaking with brulees made from high-quality liquors!
Cupcakes now come in more colors than paint chips in a paint store and more flavors than Baskin and Robbins could ever think of. Many cupcakes are so creative they are practically works of art and people are willing to pay a lot of money for just one well-done cupcake.
Cupcakes are becoming so popular they are practically replacing the apple pie as America's favorite treat and chocolate as the number 1 way of raising our endorphins after a hard day.
And the more exotic the cupcake, the more precious it is and the more money people are likely to spend on it, especially if it is a luscious, home-made cupcake made by a domestic Goddess (or God) with a culinary vision.
If you are on this page you have probably heard that getting into the cupcake business is a foolproof way to make money right now.
"Why should you start your own cupcake business?"
Gourmet cupcakes is a business opportunity that is relatively simple to start, has high demand, and is red hot right now!
A cupcake company can start from your own home with low risk, and grow into a store-front at a mall -- it's all up to you!
Even with the tough economy, people are spending money on the small things that make them feel good. People are creating cupcake wedding cakes, cupcake birthday cakes, cupcake festivals, cupcake parties. People are getting a much higher return on investment on cupcakes than they would on cakes. After all, who wants to buy a single cake that's only one flavor, when you can buy a box full of cupcakes of different sizes, flavors, and frostings!
The rumors about cupcakes being a hot commodity are TRUE!
Even though cupcakes are not one of life's necessities, they have become popular because they symbolize one of life's little luxuries for those of us who are on a budget. People can't afford to go on a big trip to China any more but they can afford a Rice Flour Cupcake with Lychee Filling, Green Tea Icing and Mandarin Orange Garnish.
When you are in the cupcake business, you are in the business of selling fantasy. Even if you are just marketing your cupcakes locally you can do very, very well for yourself!
All you need is enthusiasm, a few of your family's best cupcake recipes, an imagination capable of running riot, a good oven and beaters and one copy of The Cupcake Business Plan.
The Cupcake Business Plan outlines how you can take immediate advantage of this extremely fast-growing business opportunity that allows you to create a product that appeals to thousands of men, women, and children in your neighborhood.
A cupcake business can offer you:
- low overhead, low risk business that can be run from your own home!
- a gourmet treat that continues to grow in popularity
- an opportunity to run a fun business that you are passionate about
- the option to tap into your local market or cater to large events
- a product that is easy to cross promote
If you already run your own food or agricultural business pay particular attention to the idea of cross-promotion. Cupcakes intermesh nicely with all sorts of other products including baking tins, liqueurs, all gourmet flavorings and candies, specialty condiments and many fruits and vegetables.
Cupcakes can also be cross-promoted as advertising for events, especially if they are cleverly arranged to convey a symbolic or spelled out message to hungry eyes!
"Why YOU Can Start Earning A Recession-Proof Income in the Cupcake Confection Industry!"
As a Cupcake business owner, it is possible to make a comfortable recession-proof income in your home town that can quickly and easily expand to own multiple locations. Quite a few cupcake entrepreneurs have already become millionaires!
Don't wait until this hot trend has been exploited to death. Get in on the ground floor of this emerging sector of the gourmet and health industry now by ordering The Cupcake Business Plan!
An important part of entrepreneurial success is the planning process and having a well thought business plan can be an invaluable tool for starting and growing a profitable Cupcake shop.
"As Invaluable As They Can Be, Writing A Business Plan Has Been Difficult, Time Consuming, and Overwhelming.. Until Now!"
Did you know that over 50% of small businesses in the United States fail in the first year and 95% percent of small business fail within the first five years?
This high percentage of failure is directly related to poor planning. While a business plan is far from everything (a plan is only as good as its execution!), having the research and foresight that an effective plan provides can be invaluable.
But until now, getting a business plan specifically for a Cupcake shop could be extremely difficult -- and expensive.
A solid business plan requires in depth industry research, which can take hundreds of grueling hours to gather. Not to mention, a lot of the industry information can only be gathered by subscribing to expensive online research resources. And even then you might not know which data is important to include and what is irrelevant.
You could hire a business plan consultant for one-on-one help with writing your business plan. However, these consultants may charge upwards of $100/hour and you can expect to pay between $2,000 to $10,000 for a thoroughly researched plan. That is a huge amount of money you could be using for your startup capital instead.
That's why we decided to put together The Cupcake Business Plan.
"Save Time and Money While Avoiding The Stress of Starting from Scratch!"
The Cupcake Business Plan is easy to customize and is made up of Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Adobe Acrobat documents. These are documents that just about any computer and any human being can read easily.
This way you don't have to get frustrated learning a new software system that won't let you edit your business plan in detail.
And you don't have to worry about knowing how to write a business plan from scratch because most of it is already written for you. All you have to do is add in your Cupcake shop's facts and figures and you're done!
"Consider The Top 5 Reasons Why The Cupcake Business Plan is Right for You"
Here are the top five reasons why The Cupcake Business Plan is the perfect plan for you
It's Written From Scratch
Specifically for the Cupcake Business
Your plan is professionally researched and created from the ground up with all of the necessary details and relevant data that the bankers and investors require.
This means that you don't have to worry about customizing a generic business plan to meet your needs and wondering what belongs or doesn't belong because of your industry. That alone saves a lot of time and takes the stress out of this important part of your business process.
It's Properly Formatted The Way
Investors, Partners and Banks Want It
Bankers, partners and investors require business plans within a standard format and length. In addition to overall plan length, section content and length are also critical.
The Cupcake Business Plan adheres to best practice business plan writing standards which makes the bankers happy and makes it easier to attract the funds you need.
We've Cut The Fluff
A business plan should be clear and concise, illustrating your business feasibility. Any irrelevant information is frowned upon.
All too often, business plans will suffer from well-intended "bloat" spurred on by a desire to look like the plan "has it all together". The end result is a document that is far too long containing details that just weren't needed.
The Cupcake Business Plan focuses on what's important, leaving the fluff for the pillows.
It's Fully Researched with Up-to-date Data
and Statistics from Reliable Sources
The Cupcake Business Plan (updated for 2013) was developed and researched using trusted, contemporary resources and market data.
All of the difficult to find industry research has been gathered for you - with statistics, forecasts and market data saving time, effort and stress.
When you build your Cupcake business plan with real research from accurate sources, you're free to focus on all of the other startup tasks at hand.
It's The Only Plan Offering an
Iron Clad, 60-Day Money Back Guarantee
Some might call us crazy for offering a 60-day money back guarantee on a business plan. That's ok. We want to make sure that each and every customer is completely satisfied with their purchase.
If you're not completely satisfied with The Cupcake Business Plan, for any reason, we'll refund your money.
With hundreds of happy customers after over two and a half years of business, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality of product and stand behind each and every purchase

Check out what our cupcake shop owners have to say!
"Here's What Other Entrepreneurs Are Saying..."
"It Was All About Location, Location, Location..."
"I wrestled with the decision about whether or not to open my own cupcake shop in a little vacant corner store that was without a tenant for two years.
I just could never decide whether or not I could turn over a profit with this kind of business in my community.
Thanks to The Cupcake Business Plan I have not only revitalized this rotted out corner with my new shop but my beautiful little cup cake and tea parlor is thriving!! In fact, thanks to me, the run-down little arts area where I live is now home to similar little funky businesses.
We are building a cafe society in what was a bit of ghetto!"
John David Mason,
Watertown, New York
"Cupcakes Got Me Off My Two-Job Treadmill..."
"I'm a single mom and was just barely making ends meet working at one retail job five days a week and then working in a fast food restaurant part-time at night.
Everyone always said my baking was a dream and I was making cupcakes on the side long before they became so trendy.
It was my son that got me this Cupcake business plan and now I have my own shop, am doing what I love and I am making enough money to keep a few other talented bakers I know full-time employed!"
"Take That Starbucks!"
"I run a small coffee shop in Seattle and I really did not think that there was any way to fight the tyrannical monopoly of there being Starbucks until I got the idea to add a line of gourmet cupcakes to my menu.
Starbucks gives them the same day every day and is really expensive.
My cupcakes are unique - each is like a little treasure.
Using the Cupcake business plan I was able to figure out the exact price point I needed to not only make a profit but keep the repeat customers flocking to me and not the big coffee chain that Seattle is famous for ...unlike Starbucks I can keep changing the cupcakes I offer every day. Thanks to the Cupcake business plan I am the David who beat the Goliath with one intelligent shot! "
"My Cottage Industry Became Big Business Fast!"
"Here in Maine everyone finds their thrill on Blueberry Hill.
I have been making the best blueberry cupcakes in my cottage for many years and selling them at my roadside stand.
However it was not until I got a copy of The Cupcake Business plan that I opened a shop near town.
Today my cupcake business also features cupcakes made with Maple Syrup and Salt Water Taffy - two other specialties of the area!
I now have plans to open other cupcake shops in Hallowell and Augusta in Kennebec too! I can do it because I know I have a formula that works now."
Karl Kohler, Gardiner,
"I Never Thought I Would Get A Bank Loan But I Did..."
"Thanks to the Cupcake Business Plan my dream of owning my own cupcake shop finally could come true. Mostly it was about shortage of money. I never ever thought in a million years that I could convince a bank to give me a loan to sell cupcakes.
In February 2009 the impossible happened. I took my plan in and presented my business description, calculations, marketing plan and income estimates and came up with enough money to rent in a great location in a very busy mall next to a subway! I am making a mint! "
Jennifer Cowan, Oak Park,
"Cupcakes Saved My Coffee Shop!"
"I run a gourmet coffee shape in South Beach. There are tons of specialty cafes here in the Art Deco district and I realized that I needed to do something spectacular to make my business stand out from the crowd. There are lots of coffee joints selling the usual banana bread, muffins and chocolate cake but nobody was offering gourmet cupcakes.
Once I started offering cupcakes my business went through the roof. My key lime and coconut cupcakes were a real hit as were my Tikki Cocktail inspired Pina Colada Cup Cakes with the umbrellas on top! "
Stephen R. Banfield,
South Beach, Miami Beach Florida
"Cupcakes Making a Living Doing What I Love!"
"I am a sculptor but during the recession I found that nobody was buying art. I decided to go to a more affordable, if temporary art form - cupcakes. I am making a great living running my own cupcake showroom and I have the Cupcake business plan book to thank.
I live in Santa Barbara where people love exotic one-of-a-kind treasures and I found I was able to express my artistic side through the creation of my cupcake lines. I also do customized cupcakes and one of a kind cupcakes for special events. Some of my creations command hundreds of dollars just for one event - much more than my redwood sculptures. I get lots of press and tourist visits too. Thanks for teaching me how to sell my idea and my business so I can make a living doing what I love! "
Santa Barbara, California
"I Turned My Catering Business Into a Cupcake Shop..."
"I have been a caterer full time for some years but in these hard times I found that my services were just not as much in demand. However one thing that I did notice is that no matter how small the affair people seemed to always ask for my Grandma's Red Velvet Cupcakes. These confections were based on a chocolate cake recipe with cream cheese icing that had been passed down to me. I also had her carrot cake recipe, zucchini loaf recipe and banana loaf recipes. I transformed all of these into successful healthy low-calorie cupcake recipes and I now have my own little cupcake shop that does a raving business! I will never have to stand behind a chafing dish again! "
Kat Van Rijn,
"Food Stylist Opens Her Own Store..."
"Thanks for the great business plan! I was a food stylist for the film and television industry and little by little my work began to dry up over the past few years. I decided that I needed a job where I could be my own boss and at the same time express my creativity.
As we have nothing to compare to your business plan online in Canada I ordered yours and to my delight was able to put all of the principles of opening a cupcake store into action even though your book is written for the U.S.. I am doing so well I am thinking of opening a store up in Markham - a suburb up here! Thanks again! "
"Healthy Cup Cakes Are All The Rage..."
"As a veteran employee of a weight loss center I know that calorie deprivation does not work. I opened a cupcake shop that showcases healthy cupcakes - low fat, low calorie, non-dairy, soy, carob, acai, gluten-free and low glycemic confections to reward the starving women coming out of the yoga and Pilates center next door every day. I do a raving business thanks to the Cupcake Business plan which showed me exactly how to explain to my bank loans officer where my future profits were coming from... "
Richard M. Burry,
La Jolla, California
