Franci - I have to ask: How long did it take you to bake 55 cakes?!! Guessing you have multiple ovens? And how many rounds of dishes??!
I started 9:30 am and finished at 8pm, including a short break for lunch. I picked up the kids from school, made a simple dinner for them and yelled at them to get ready to go to sleep.
When the kids where not at home I was more productive but I try to keep it as clean as I can as I go and try to keep the process more efficient as possible.

That's awesome. That's a lot of f'ing cakes for a day in the home kitchen (unless you have one serious home kitchen). Best of luck with the business.
I bought a cadco, half sheet size, convection where I can bake at most 8 cakes at a time and I still use my ancient Chamber stove oven! 12 cakes yesterday came from there.
Plus I have a good size working table with all my work stuff stored there. Only 1 KA 8Qt., maybe I'll need another one, especially now that I found another person from my cooking school helping me, maybe from next week.

I have to ask: is your business on the Internet?
I have a web site, that you find at my signature but I'm not selling on internet. Only in 5 locations in Brooklyn at the moment.

delicious they are, the best Ive ever sampled.
just saying. and no, I do not have a commercial interest here. The I-Pot has done enough damage already to the waist line
Thanks Rotuts! BTW, I gained 6kgs since starting this business, definitely not good for the line.
