I'm starting with these few items first as I have a lot of other listings in the works. This blog is all about finding fun stuff to do for extra spending money, so here's one of the things that I love to do!!
Lego Indiana Jones with WII remotes
I started with this Lego one for my son and then moved on from there. Several of my friends started requesting cakes for their kids and I have been having a blast with it since then. I framed my first $20 bill instead of spending it. Even gave my kitchen a bakery name (patent pending!) SO, this is my first odd job listing. This is something I love doing. From my friends, I don't like taking money, but, they threw it at me, so, I'm not complaining! It's a little "me" money!
When you find something that you love and then you can make some "cha-ching" off of it - start marketing yourself! I went to MAMAPEDIA and listed myself locally as a cake maker! Haven't received any calls off of it yet, but, you never know! I know word of mouth is a big deal - it's how my next Odd Job listing got me a position that I hope to keep for years to come! The 5 year old birthday presents cakes got me an instant order from the party. I especially loved that the woman requested my chocolate cake (my new favorite homemade recipe)
Hey! If you live near central LONG ISLAND or know someone who does and want a specialty cake, you can let me know right here and we'll get in touch. I have tons of ideas and cake forms and time. Give me a chance and I'll give you a memory.
Happy Friday Everyone and thanks for reading!
