Listen to this post

Which is the most profitable business that I can start with almost no capital to earn Ksh. 2,000 daily in 2020? How about you start a small bakery at home!

If you didn’t know already, “how to start a cake baking business from home” was the most popular question featured on major Facebook groups in Kenya toward the close of 2019.

Interestingly, the demographics of commentors included youths, middle-aged (employed people) -and-or- retirees.

Most of the people commenting with the same common phrase, following.

Does that communicate anything to you?

As a researcher and a curated content writer I say, these comments shout-out so many social issues.

From we are helpless to we need jobs to I wish I was able to start my own business in 2019 for financial independence -and- fulfillment. And more.

In 2020, I want to help people start small businesses.

I really do.

But the first step will be yours to take firs.

Identify any small businesses which you can manage comfortably then work on your business plan to begin making money ASAP.

If nothing from that list interests you, then how about you try this little gravy;


Start a small cake baking business from home with the little capital you can get 

We all love baked products, yea?

In fact, over 80% of families in Kenya can’t go without a baked product in 2 days.

And don’t even try to dispute that fact

Lest you want to clarify where all the bread by Festive, United Millers, Super Loaf -and- all those other major baking companies end up.

That’s why I still insist that the baking business has money in it. And you too could grab a share of that market -and- make a kill in your town.

How to Start Your Own Cake Decorating Business From Home 

Like any other real business in Kenya, you will need to get a few certifications -and- licences to start a small bakery within your county of residence.

If you intend to make this a full-time business then you might as well want to budget for other overhead cost like rent.

But since your start-up capital has a minimum investment tag on it and you want to make sure that the business is viable before you can pull in all your resources, I say don’t waste money on any of that, instead- : –

  1. Register the business on eCitizen
  2. Get your food, hygiene and safety certificates
  3. Get your baking recipes ready
  4. Try to use what you already have but keep the records (for charcoal usage if you will be starting really small -and- utility bills if you have a home oven/cooker)
