Making cakes is dead easy.
Get some books from the library and follow them to the letter. Baking is quite an exact science.

I have no idea about the commercial possibilities, however.
Good luck

It's easy enough to make a start - just get a recipe book and start from there. But you need to also get a feel for your own oven - the temperatures and timings sometimes need a bit of experimenting till you find what works best.

I suspect if you want to do it commercially, you'd need to get a food hygiene certificate - your local FE college may be able to provide suitable courses for that.
