1.2 Schedule. The Coach will begin work on February 1, 2023 and will continue until the work is completed. This Contract can be ended by either Client or Coach at any time, pursuant to the terms of Section 4, Term and Termination.

3.1 Overview. This section contains important promises between the parties.

3.2 Authority To Sign. Each party promises to the other party that it has the authority to enter into this Contract and to perform all of its obligations under this Contract.

3.3 Coach Has Right To Give Client Work Product. The Coach promises that it owns the work product, that the Coach is able to give the work product to the Client, and that no other party will claim that it owns the work product. If the Coach uses employees or subcontractors, the Coach also promises that these employees and subcontractors have signed contracts with the Coach giving the Coach any rights that the employees or subcontractors have related to the Coach's background IP and work product.

3.4 Coach Will Comply With Laws. The Coach promises that the manner it does this job, its work product, and any background IP it uses comply with applicable U.S. and foreign laws and regulations.

3.5 Work Product Does Not Infringe. The Coach promises that its work product does not and will not infringe on someone else's intellectual property rights, that the Coach has the right to let the Client use the background IP, and that this Contract does not and will not violate any contract that the Coach has entered into or will enter into with someone else.

3.7 Client-Supplied Material Does Not Infringe. If the Client provides the Coach with material to incorporate into the work product, the Client promises that this material does not infringe on someone else's intellectual property rights.


This Contract is ongoing until it expires or the work is completed. Either party may end this Contract for any reason by sending an email or letter to the other party, informing the recipient that the sender is ending the Contract and that the Contract will end in 7 days.

6.1 Overview. This Contract imposes special restrictions on how the Client and the Coach must handle confidential information. These obligations are explained in this section.

6.2 The Client's Confidential Information. While working for the Client, the Coach may come across, or be given, Client information that is confidential. This is information like customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, statistics about a website, and other information that is private. The Coach promises to treat this information as if it is the Coach's own confidential information. The Coach may use this information to do its job under this Contract, but not for anything else. For example, if the Client lets the Coach use a customer list to send out a newsletter, the Coach cannot use those email addresses for any other purpose. The one exception to this is if the Client gives the Coach written permission to use the information for another purpose, the Coach may use the information for that purpose, as well. When this Contract ends, the Coach must give back or destroy all confidential information, and confirm that it has done so. The Coach promises that it will not share confidential information with a third party, unless the Client gives the Coach written permission first. The Coach must continue to follow these obligations, even after the Contract ends. The Coach's responsibilities only stop if the Coach can show any of the following: (i) that the information was already public when the Coach came across it; (ii) the information became public after the Coach came across it, but not because of anything the Coach did or didn't do; (iii) the Coach already knew the information when the Coach came across it and the Coach didn't have any obligation to keep it secret; (iv) a third party provided the Coach with the information without requiring that the Coach keep it a secret; or (v) the Coach created the information on its own, without using anything belonging to the Client.

6.3 Third-Party Confidential Information. It's possible the Client and the Coach each have access to confidential information that belongs to third parties. The Client and the Coach each promise that it will not share with the other party confidential information that belongs to third parties, unless it is allowed to do so. If the Client or the Coach is allowed to share confidential information with the other party and does so, the sharing party promises to tell the other party in writing of any special restrictions regarding that information.


Neither party is liable for breach-of-contract damages that the breaching party could not reasonably have foreseen when it entered this Contract.


8.1 Overview. This section transfers certain risks between the parties if a third party sues or goes after the Client or the Coach or both. For example, if the Client gets sued for something that the Coach did, then the Coach may promise to come to the Client's defense or to reimburse the Client for any losses.

8.2 Client Indemnity. In this Contract, the Coach agrees to indemnify the Client (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of: (i) the work the Coach has done under this Contract; (ii) a breach by the Coach of its obligations under this Contract; or (iii) a breach by the Coach of the promises it is making in Section 3 (Representations).

8.3 Coach Indemnity. In this Contract, the Client agrees to indemnify the Coach (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of a breach by the Client of its obligations under this Contract.


9.1 Assignment​. This Contract applies only to the Client and the Coach. Neither the Client nor the Coach can assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Contract to a third-party (other than by will or intestate), without first receiving the other's written permission.

9.2 Arbitration. As the exclusive means of initiating adversarial proceedings to resolve any dispute arising under this Contract, a party may demand that the dispute be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its commercial arbitration rules.

9.3 Modification; Waiver. To change anything in this Contract, the Client and the Coach must agree to that change in writing and sign a document showing their contract. Neither party can waive its rights under this Contract or release the other party from its obligations under this Contract, unless the waiving party acknowledges it is doing so in writing and signs a document that says so.

9.4. Noticies.

(a) Over the course of this Contract, one party may need to send a notice to the other party. For the notice to be valid, it must be in writing and delivered in one of the following ways: personal delivery, email, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested). The notice must be delivered to the party's address listed at the end of this Contract or to another address that the party has provided in writing as an appropriate address to receive notice.

(b) The timing of when a notice is received can be very important. To avoid confusion, a valid notice is considered received as follows: (i) if delivered personally, it is considered received immediately; (ii) if delivered by email, it is considered received upon acknowledgement of receipt; (iii) if delivered by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), it is considered received upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. If a party refuses to accept notice or if notice cannot be delivered because of a change in address for which no notice was given, then it is considered received when the notice is rejected or unable to be delivered. If the notice is received after 5:00pm on a business day at the location specified in the address for that party, or on a day that is not a business day, then the notice is considered received at 9:00am on the next business day.

9.5 Severability. This section deals with what happens if a portion of the Contract is found to be unenforceable. If that's the case, the unenforceable portion will be changed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that change is not permitted by law, in which case the portion will be disregarded. If any portion of the Contract is changed or disregarded because it is unenforceable, the rest of the Contract is still enforceable.

9.6 Signatures. The Client and the Coach must sign this document using Bonsai's e-signing system. These electronic signatures count as originals for all purposes.

9.7 Governing Law. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this document shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America.

9.8 Entire Contract. This Contract represents the parties' final and complete understanding of this job and the subject matter discussed in this Contract. This Contract supersedes all other contracts (both written and oral) between the parties.

Whether you're just starting out or you have been running a bakery business for a while, it is important that you send an invoice to bill clients for the goods that you have baked. Rather than creating different styles of invoices each time, it would be more time-efficient to create a cake invoice template so you just have to simply enter all the details for each client into the invoice template.

You have several options for bakery invoice templates including using programs like google sheets, google docs, or MS word to create one yourself, or searching online for free cake invoice templates. However, if you wish to send professional invoices out to your clients you may be better off using a more professional service rather than using a free cake invoice template.

There are platforms that provide the tools to achieve this such as Bonsai, which is used by over 500,000 self-employed workers to create a Taylor-made invoice for their businesses. Bonsai also has pro features to allow you to lock in partial payments, and global payments to choose from such as credit card, ACH, and PayPal. They also have an easy automation function from the creation, sending, and reminding to automatic late fees.

What is a cake invoice template?

In every business transaction, there is a point at which the company has provided its goods or services and needs to get paid for that service. An invoice is a document that highlights exactly what services have been provided, the order details, the cost of production, and the payment terms.

Using an invoice template makes this process a lot easier, as you will already have the format laid out and just have to fill in the details required. This may be in the form of a pdf format that you simply download, print off, and write on.

As a consultant or freelancer that bakes and delivers cakes to clients, you can make invoicing easier if you use a cake invoice template. Such templates are usually in formats that you can edit easily.

Using invoices to bill clients gives credibility to your business and helps you maintain a cordial relationship with them. But, make sure you use a good template that contains all the relevant and useful information.

1. Uses of a cake invoice template

Many freelancers and consultants still deal with clients the crude way, even though it is not advisable. While you might get away with such a crude approach, there are benefits of using a cake invoice that may interest you.

Here are some of them below:

  • It helps you to maintain and keep track of past balances
  • It speeds up the payment process for your services
  • In the case of repeat orders, it helps you to organize a client’s account
  • It can be printed in easily from PDF or other printer-friendly formats
  • It eases tax clearance processes and financial reporting

2. Creating a cake invoice template

You can create a cake invoice from scratch, especially if you can use MS Word or some other applications well. It is not difficult at all, and you can always use a cake invoice template as a guide. We strongly encourage that you use a template so that you will not leave out important details that should be included in the invoice.

So, before we look at how to create a cake invoice, let’s see some details that such an invoice should contain. 

How to write a cake invoice

When you have given your goods to your clients or offered any services, you will need to record this information on the invoice template you have already created. Here is a step by step guide on how to fill in that information:

List the complete goods or services provided

You must write down what goods or services you have provided to each customer whether it is just a few cakes for your smaller clients or a full catering service provided for your larger clients.

Add the total balance owed

Add up each individual goods or services provided to come up with a total balance that the client owes you. This may include labor costs and tax rates. You might want to add in the accepted methods for payment.

Make several copies of the payment terms

As a bakery owner, you will likely have a high turnover of customers every day, it is important to keep on top of the paperwork by ensuring you have a good filling system in place. It is advisable to make multiple copies of each document to ensure you have an up-to-date file.

Submit the invoice to the customer

Once you have gone through these steps it is time to give the customer their invoice. You can choose to give it to them how you wish but it is recommended to ask them for their preferred form of delivery such as email or a paper copy.

Added Tips

  • Add As Many Payment Details as Possible - This will cater to all of your customers depending on their preferred payment method as some will prefer paying by card and some with cash.
  • Add Miscellaneous Costs - As you may be very busy working and checking on your products it is worth taking the time to check you haven't accidentally left out any costs to the customers such as taxes or transaction fees.
  • Double-Check the Invoice - Similarly to the last point, it is important that you make sure all of the information you have put in the invoice is correct as an invoice full of incorrect information will make you look unprofessional.

3. Details contained in a cake invoice template

After you have completed baking your goods and giving them to your customer, you should supply them with an invoice for those goods they are purchasing. As you may be baking goods for many different occasions such as weddings and birthdays for numerous clients you will have to create an individual invoice for each customer.

What should you add to a cake invoice?

When creating an invoice template you should include all the relevant information on it. Here are examples in more detail of the type of information that needs to be included:

  • A unique invoice number - an invoice number will be needed for your record-keeping.
  • Your company's details - (business name, bakery owners, email, and mailing address, phone number, company logo).
  • The client's information - contact details such as an address, email, and phone number.
  • Service list provided - A list of the goods provided (baked goods, wedding cake, etc)
  • Total cost for completing the work carried out - Cost of goods provided or hourly labor rates for larger clients.
  • Gross subtotal - (before adding service fees, discounts, and taxes)
  • The total net amount owed - (with taxes)
  • The due date for the requested payment

As the owner of a bakery business, you may be offering different goods and services to different clients. For example, the smaller clients you may just bake a few cakes, but for larger ones, you may provide a full catering service for a function. With this in mind, it may be recording these different types of services provided in a google docs sheet before you write the information into the invoice template, so you don't forget any information.

To foster a good relationship between a freelancer and a client, it is good practice to include certain details in a cake invoice. More so, it will help you to avoid any form of disagreement that will hinder future business relations. 

4. Step-by-step guide to create a cake invoice

We have compiled the following steps that will guide you to create your cake invoice from any template online.

  • Find and download a cake invoice template.
  • Customize it by adding your logo, your preferred font, and color, etc.
  • Include your name (or business name), address, and contact information.
  • Include your client’s name and address.
  • List and describe the services you provided alongside the price for every one of them.
  • Include the “Total Amount” field to your invoice and calculate the total amount for all services provided.
  • Include your accepted means of payment.
  • Add the “Note” field and include your refund policy, privacy policy, and any other important information.
  • Finally, save your personalized cake invoice.

Once you prepare your customized template following the steps above, you will not have to repeat exactly every step for each client. You will only have to change the information in some of the fields.
