They certainly appear to do so here in the UK!

The mother of one of the girls in my daughter's class made special occasion cakes, weddings, birthdays etc - and she drives a Merc, if that's any guide?

If you count your time involved, then it's about average. What most folks don't realize is that it takes hours on hours of work to make and decorate a wedding cake. But yes, it can be a very lucrative business!

I would have to agree once you get known for doing it, Yes you get paid well, But don't think that will happen right away.

You can make some money if you are baking cakes for the rich and famous.
