It's so sobering to see just how much I'm spending versus charging. It's one thing to
have rough numbers scribbled on post-its and quite another to see everything actually
accounted for and calculated. It feels so good to finally feel a bit more in control
and justified in charging for my work. CakeBoss is a great program and I'll be highly
Since using CakeBoss, business has become more simplified. At the end of this
year I was able to print out a report that showed where my profits and losses were
so that I could go into a new year ready. Even my accountant was impressed.
I haven't even mentioned the customer service... it is beyond phenomenal.
Every question addressed and a solution provided, quickly and efficiently.
This program has been the best investment tool I have made in cakes and confections
to date. THANKS CAKEBOSS TEAM... YOU'RE AWESOME!!
I purchased Cake Boss last year and I have not regretted it. They have always been
prompt to answer my questions. I have really appreciated the great customer service.
This program has been a fantastic way for me to think through the "why I do things
the way I do them" in billing. I am seeing my costs in a whole new light, and the
importance of charging a price that is fair to me. I also enjoy having an invoice
that looks professional with my logo on it.
I use CakeBoss for all my cake biz and I highly recommend
it!! You enter exactly what the ingredients cost you and your price per hour and
you have your price, plus you can see your profit margin for the year which is fantastic!!!
It takes all the guess work out of it! Customer service is also top notch!
We greatly appreciate that. Thanks for a great product for decorators!!
CakeBoss is absolutely awesome! I love it, love it, love it! Keeps track of all
of your customers, orders (past and present), prints invoices, you can track cost
and profit for each order, and you can pull reports (which I love too! makes it
very easy when paying taxes, looking at sales over any period of time, etc). For
me this pulls just about everything together in one place, can't get much better
than that. And, great customer service, if I have a question/suggestion I hear from
them right away! Oh, how did I forget, there is also a calendar which uploads your
orders once entered.... love it. Worth every penny.
CakeBoss is such a money saver! Recently I made a
cake for a birthday party and was going to charge $30.00 for
it, but when using CakeBoss to figure my pricing it gave me a price of $56.00. It's
a great addition to even the small home business.
I LOVE CakeBoss! No more lost phone numbers, or having to call and confirm a
delivery. Now when I get an order I just say "Wait one minute please while I go
to my computer." Everything goes straight into CakeBoss and I never have to worry
where I laid "that paper" again. I also love that it shows me in black and white
my cost and my profit. I now know where my profit is and how much it is! Thanks
I just purchased CakeBoss and I LOVE it! It is so nice to know how much cakes cost
to make! I was definitely losing money before! Thank you so much for developing
this program! You have saved me so much guess work and time!
When I received CakeBoss, I was immediately blown away by all of the features. I spent a couple
hours putting in all of my recipes and prices for things that I purchased often. I entered a cake I had due
that week. It was a 2 tiered topsy turvy cake to serve 50 people. I quoted $50.00 for the cake. Once I added
up my ingredients on CakeBoss, I realized that I had spent $46.00 in supplies alone!! That was the LAST time I
quoted a price without using Cake Boss.
I average about 20 cakes a week, and I'm able to keep track of each and every order without fail. I know exactly
how much I spend on every order, my profits for the whole month at a glance, when the cake is due and where to
deliver...I couldn't ask for more (though there is plenty more included). I rely more heavily on this one tool for my cake
business than any other (including my oven), which an amazing statement on its own, but every bit true!
I LOVE CakeBoss!!!!!!!! I have just a small home business that is slowly but surely growing
and I couldn't live without it. It is exactly what I was writing down on paper and
having to figure on paper all in a nice computer package. It makes my hectic life
so much easier. There isn't anyway to forget a cake with the calendar!
I just wanted to drop you a note that I had my first official cookie order this week, so I was
very excited to use the software…[my customer] knew I was just starting out, etc.
Boy was she impressed when I even had my own invoices with logo and everything!
She was very impressed with how professional everything was and I know that CakeBoss
was a big part in making my cookie business look that way when I delivered the order.
Thanks so much guys!
I met with a bride yesterday and I felt so professional opening my laptop and filling
in her info in CakeBoss!!! I am telling everyone about it!!
I have been using CakeBoss for about a week and a half
now and I love it. So much easier than Excel or Works Spreadsheet and has so much
more to it. I am so much more organized with everything from recipes to orders all
in one very convenient place. I haven't lost or forgotten anything since I started
using it. I don't know what I would do without it now!
This is a GREAT program. My partner and I always said there should be a program
to organize everything but be cake related. We started making spreadsheets but they
are hard to work with and make them all work and update with eachother in a real
pain. THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH!!!! This program makes life so easy and it's fun to
work with too. It's easy to navigate through and I love the boldness of it.
I just love CakeBoss.
I run my business from home, and it is sure nice not to have millions of papers
everywhere. CakeBoss has simplified everything for me. Now when the phone rings
I immediately enter info on my customers. No more looking for what envelope I wrote
something on the back of!! Thanks Guys!!
CakeBoss really simplifies a lot of tasks. All my recipes in one spot, customer
info (including birthdays and anniversaries) orders kept neat and in order, in short
all relevant info at my fingertips. I even moved the phone to be near my laptop.
Really does make everything simpler and the support forum is great. Answers come
fast and suggestion acted upon. Try to find that anywhere else. Thanks guys, great
As I've been slowly working with CakeBoss I realized how little I was charging.
I also feel better about the few people who thought I was charging too much.
Great program! Thanks!
I've only been working on it a few days, and I just know this is a program to use
and LOVE. Its so easy to get the hang of it and gives u all the crucial info fast
and easy. The [tech] support is amazing!
I LOVE CAKEBOSS! Everything is in one place, and it's very
user friendly. You really don't have to be a computer geek to use this program!
Within minutes of downloading I was entering customers and orders and had everything
running smoothly. [They] really listen and keep adding helpful features that continue
to simplify our jobs. You guys are the best! Thanks so much for all your hard work!
I just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you that I purchased and installed
CakeBoss this morning and already I am in love. Thank you for making such a wonderful,
user friendly, affordable software for those of us in the cake and pastry business.
Wonderful job, wonderful product!
It truly is a life-changing program! Extremely well thought
out and designed - I don't know how I've ever got along without it! Thank you so
much from the bottom of my heart!!!
I love CakeBoss!! I has really taken my home business to the next
level! Everything is so organized and looks so professional!
I have just started to use CakeBoss but so far it has made
my life so much easier. I can get organized with all my recipes, contacts and a
calendar to see what is coming next. Thanks!
I've wasted more time trying to find where I've written something--due dates, names,
phone numbers, etc, etc. What a dream come true. So user friendly and well thought
out. Makes running the business so much more efficient and effective. And, continually
looking to modify and improve with open dialog and feedback from users. YOU ARE
I LOVE CakeBoss!!! You guys have taken each and every comment/wish and turned it into a reality for
the user! Everything I asked for, you didn't even hesitate to develop and make the
suggestion work! Way to go! Thank you for listening to all the suggestions and helping
those that truly needed a program especially for cake people!!!
I'm just starting, and the CakeBoss program is really helpful to me.
It eliminates a lot of headache with what to charge people. I have a
great place to store my secret receipes. Again, I thank you.
Thanks so much for your help and such a wonderful tool for us in this business to
use. It has made my business run so much better since I found it.
I absolutely love CakeBoss!
I put together my first wedding cake order on it and I now can see exactly what
I need in order to make this cake and make a profit on it!
CakeBoss has completely changed the way I schedule my orders. I actually know when
my schedule is full instead of panicking on a Friday night because I just realized
that I have double the orders I should for a Saturday and didn't realize it until
I was going through the hundreds of little pieces of paper on my desk, on my work
counter, etc. I can also ask anyone who is working with me at the time to look up
an order, whereas before, I was the only one who could understand anything!!
I love my Cake Boss!
It has helped me organize a lot of the loose papers I had here and there. It is
so easy now to pull up or enter new customers and figure the cost all at one time.
It is about time that someone who knows what they are doing in our field created
a tool to make our lives more organized and less painful during our crunch weeks.
I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to do
all of the work in getting this to us decorators. I have been so "less stressed"
having the Cake Boss. I think if people knew how much it helps, not just the pricing
but the stress and for my records and taxes, I think they wouldn’t hesitate to get
it. Great tool!
I am so excited to find your product. I have been looking for just this kind of program for 3 years!!
I have been UNDERPRICING my work the whole time. CakeBoss is definitely going
to be one of my most valuable assets and I will recommend it to anyone who asks
for a bakery/hobby pricing guide.
CakeBoss is the best tool we can have! Even better than a KitchenAid!
With this product you know how much you should be charging. NO MORE UNDER PRICED
CAKES! No more losing money, no more losing papers. Keep it all in one place.
[They] have been excellent when I have a question, and if there is a problem they
are always right there to fix it. CakeBoss is the best investment you can make!
I just purchased Cake Boss 3 days ago and I love it.
I used to do all of the [cost] calculating and stuff on Excel, but this program
is a huge time saver for me and I can always use more time. I don't do many cakes...but
I think this is still worth the investment.
I'm having a lot of fun learning to use CakeBoss. I have been totally surprised at the
amount a cake costs to make. I think I enjoy the recipes and cost feature the best.
This new 2010 version is incredible. When I tried to explain to my accountant that all you will need is CakeBoss,
he didn't believe me. Once I showed it to him and what I could do and the reports I could run, and
figuring my profits, and pie charts, etc, he was amazed. When you can make an accountant smile that
is pretty good stuff!! Thank you for all that you do to make this such a great tool for small or
large business owners to succeed with ease with the tools you have provided to us.

I have to tell you how much I LOVE CakeBoss. I am so happy I bought it!
I have been trying to put this stuff together on Quickbooks and it was a bit overwhelming.
I have been very impressed with CakeBoss and how easy it is to use. Your customer
response and the improvements you are always working on have been fantastic too.
The 2010 CakeBoss is awesome, and you are making it so much easier for people like me to have
a great business, thank you for that and keep up the good work. I love my CakeBoss!!!
Thanks for a great program! Until now I've been plugging away with Excel and Word (excel for a um-teen
worksheets of costings for each recipe, tin size and shape and excel and word together as a mail merge for invoicing).
I'm finding that CakeBoss is just so much more powerful.
I have been struggling for the past 10 years to keep myself organized with my small cake business. I was looking
for a way to help me keep track of my inventory, recipes, clients, finances, costing out my cakes, keep pictures
together with orders, while not keeping a ton of paper work around (keeping green). CakeBoss has done all that
and more. You can't beat the program for the money. I have quite a few friends all over the country who have their own businesses
and I recommend CakeBoss as the best program out there.
I have CakeBoss...I love it. It has a calendar that you can see the whole month on it. When you first
open the program, it goes to your "Dashboard" This will list out each order you have due in the next 7 days,
as well as any outstanding payments that are due. From there, one click will take you to your monthly calendar.
It's a really neat program with lots of features.
My CakeBoss program is the only way I can keep organized at all. If it doesn't make it into the computer, I will
forget it. It is my go-to place for all my orders at a glance. Love love love this software!
Cake Boss software is worth every cent. You enter your ingredients and the cost and it breaks it down into
different costs per measurement, you enter your recipes, and it will tell you the exact cost of that recipe,
then you enter your overhead and how much you want to be paid per hour and it will give you the price you should
charge and how much you'll be making off the top. It's pretty awesome and I suggest that anyone who has problems
with pricing should get it.
I have to thank you again for making such a great program. I could not fathom running my business without it!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this program. I was undercharging terribly before I bought this software. I will not even attempt
to quote a cake before entering all my data.
Since purchasing Cake Boss, I have been more efficient and have not under estimated my hard work. I love this program!
