Hi, Kate! Welcome! Sounds like an intriguing and useful tool. Just one question: you mention its application to cakes, but how adaptable is it to cookies and cookie pricing? Does it have a software component that assists with cookie pricing, for instance? We're mostly about cookies here, and pricing is a commonly expressed concern/question about cookies, which is why I ask. Thanks!

Hi Julia,

Thank you for your question.

The software works with any bakes. 

In our Kitchen section you can make a list of all your ingredients, expenses and equipment. This also generates shopping lists for you when you are running low on the essentials.

Over to recipes, we have a section for cookies. So you can keep a record of all your most used cookie recipes and any new ones you develop, along with costings for each recipe. There is also a separate area for icings and frostings; if you have any specific recipes for those.

In our bakery section again we have a section for cookies. This is where you can cost up specific order enquiries. 

In our business section you can keep up to date on all your tasks, orders and contacts. The software enables you to directly email customer quotes, updates, payment terms etc.

Finally we have an insights section which will keep track of your monthly income and outgoings and give you an overall view of this business.

I hope this helps, but do pop over and have a look around the website.

Thanks - one more question: what about the  ability to factor in labor costs (i.e.,  for cookie decorating and packaging time, often our biggest cost drivers) in pricing estimates? Asking mostly for the benefit of others as I no longer sell my cookies.

Hi Julia,

The software also takes labor costs into account. When you create your business profile you add in what you charge per hour for different tasks. This can be in a variety of currencies too; so Baking It can be used world wide.

You can also set different amounts, for example you may wish to charge more for skilled decorating than baking/cooking time work.

In our business section where you can create a quote/order there is the option to add in your delivery charges. This is done by you adding a cost per mile and how many miles you will be travelling. Under this there is also 'set up' costs, if somebody was setting up a wedding display of cookies this can also be factored in. 

We have tried to make the software as in depth as we possibly could to make a bakers life easier.

We are also very happy to receive feedback from our customers ,if they feel something could be done to improve the software we want to know. We want this tool to become an invaluable part of your business, so you can focus on the baking. 

Kate - from Baking It
