Irene,
It probably depends on what state you are in for the licensing stuff. Welcome to the site and good luck with your cake business!

Hi Irene. Welcome to the site. Definately..check with your state. Most stateswon't allow you to sell foods that have been cooked in a non licensed kitchen. Most home kitchens can't be licensed. I would hate to see you do well...then have someone stop your business....where you would be faced with finding new alternatives. I wish you the very best of luck!

Actually I used to have a neighbor that had a baking business that she ran out of her home. I don't know if she had a license.

Welcome! I know you will love it here. It is great, and people are helpful and personable. But let me warn you, as I have others…this is addictive!
