Topics I've Started

I Need Advice...

19 February 2014 - 08:43 AM


I lost my job a week ago. Now I need to look for another one, or?

Everybody is telling me that I should open my own business. That I should open a bakery.



I'm very good in the gluten and casein free baking. I developed a bread  that can lasts up to week and half covered just in plastic foil and stored on my kitchen counter. Even after the week and half the bread is still soft and edible. Later it will get moldy, but it will stay soft. I sent the sample (bread mix) from it to our friend Love2travel for testing. She sad that it was very good, and that  was gone in two days.  

I also know how to bake Danish cakes and raisin bread- Babka that will last for 3-4 days - they will be soft. You don't need to store them in the fridge or freezer.

I improved my recipe: Simona's gluten free Challah bread (I posted it long time ago on this forum), and the Challah that I'm baking now is 10 times better.

I also know how to make other things that taste and look like the real things (crepes, empanadas, tortillas, pirogues) .


In addition to that I can make European gluten and casein free pastry, cookies and cakes. They are also low on sugar.

I will post some pictures later.


And now the dilemma part:

How to start business? What to do? Do I just start to bake at home and sell things frozen online? I'm freezing my own pastry for 2-3 months (from one holiday to another), and they are still perfect.

Should I buy a stand at some flee market and sell things there? Would you buy something like this?

Should I ask at the local stores (Whole food, Trade's Joe, Shoprite,, or some cafĂ©), if they would buy and sell my goods?

I don't have money to open a real bakery, so the options are limited.

Would you even believe to somebody who would tell you that everything is safe to eat (everything is gluten and casein free)? If not, what do I need to do?

Is this even worth it to try?

Please, any advice?


P.S.: If  I posted this at the wrong spot, just move it. Thank you




How Much Would You Pay?

29 August 2013 - 06:17 AM

I would like to ask you something important to me.

How much would you pay for a loaf of bread which weights 2.4 pounds, or has 38.4 oz.? 

It is 12 inches long, 4.5 inches high and 5 inches wide.


This bread is my creation and I would like to sell it to a few friends. When I checked the Udi's bread, it's just 12 oz.  When I compered them, the Udi's bread is a very, very, very small loaf and its cost fluctuates   from $5.00-6.99 in the stores around me.


So please help me with this dilemma.
