Hello year 4! Yesterday, you learned all about what it takes to be a great entrepreneur. You looked at some examples of people who have baked their way to success and came up with a business plan of your own. Today we will be focusing on a key part of your baking business…THE PRODUCT.
Product: Something that is manufactured (made) for sale.
Today you will be designing your cake product. You will need to consider the market research you collected yesterday. What is your family’s favourite type of cake? Will you be making cupcakes? or one big cake? What will your cake(s) look like? How will you make them appealing to buyers? The answers to these questions need to inform your cake design today.

5) Why is flavour important?
6) How will you make your cake(s) stand out?

Remember, you need to include the following key information:
