It might be easier/cheaper to rent commercial kitchen space. That is what a lot of personal chefs do, as well as pastry chefs who make desserts for restaurants.

You'll need to check locally for regulations where you live. My county does not allow any food to be sold if prepared in a "home kitchen". Even school cake walks can not include a home made cake... a bakery cake or even a cake mix is fine.
The schools in the next county over have bake sales all the time using home made goodies.

In my area of NYS it is not allowed anymore, even baking to give to the food pantry or a charity is not legal anymore. Charity baking has to be done in a church or school kitchen that has been inspected and licensed.

The folks that do bake or can at home do it on a don't ask don't tell basis.

If I was starting out I think I would look for an organization, church or saloon that has a kitchen that is not used much and see if I could rent the space. If your business does not work out you will have nothing invested.

Good luck!

I knew someone who ran a catering biz that way.
