A Cake Baking Business could be fun. My niece and I took fancy cake decorating classes. Let me tell you -- cake decorating is not my gift, my fancy flowers weren't pretty, that's for sure.
Crystal's cakes are beautifully creative. She enjoys the process (her kids are at school) and the side income it provides.
Michaels Crafts and JoAnne's Crafts store often host the cake decorating classes OR try GOOGLE and search for "Local Cake Decorating Classes". Fun!
Start out by sharing your cakes with friends and ask for their taste-testing opinion. If they like it, they might start the best type of advertisement for you.. simply "word of mouth".
Bake cakes, cupcakes, or cookies for moms to take to their kids school. Just think - it's their turn to provide the snacks and they simply don't have the time. They are busy and working, you can help fill this need AND make them proud to have cookies for the kids.
Write up a flyer, place in doors along the street and maybe post where bulletin boards are locally -- and see what happens! Give them ideas for how they might need your cupcakes: kids school treats, wedding and baby showers, Have sample cupcakes ready for tasting too!
Maybe you specialize in gluten-free cakes, or holiday cakes, whatever!
