So I just finished my last Wilton cake course last night and I feel I'm making good progress. My sort of life long dream has been to do cakes from home. I've known so many people that have done this. And then, my instructor says "You know, don't let the Health Dept find out about this or you'll get fined, etc" My husband is a stickler for rules and regs and he won't let me do this if this is illegal! I'm so bummed!!!! What to do?!

Don't get discouraged, everyone starts off baking at home. Start making cakes for your family and friends, if they would like to give you a donation $$ that's OK. Once word gets out that you make cakes, you will start getting orders and then you can always rent kitchen space from a caterer or other licensed kitchen.
Where are you located in California?
Good luck and have fun,
Lori V.

Hey Cali people!!! I'm in Carson. Lori V., I like the way you put it. I think it's true that everyone starts off baking from home. And what's wrong if you get a "donation" here and there for your efforts?
Scibaker, I understand how you feel though. It's a bummer that we can't sell from home. Years ago, the rules were different. Anyway, we just have to be creative in our approach to getting our cakes out there. At least for me, that's what I have to do until I open my own cake studio one day.
Happy baking and decoratin you guys. icon_razz.gif
