So since i'm not permitted by law to sell cookies etc. out of my home, i was told i would have to either rent a licensed kitchen, or open shop. My question was, if i rent the kitchen to bake my cookies etc..in, is it then ok to bring them home to decorate, package them, until pickup?
It's so confusing.

Decorating, etc would have to be done in the licensed kitchen.

This is really going to depend on the state, county, city you live in.

But from what I have heard of most places, is that all work must be done in the licensed facility.

I highly suggest calling your local health department.

I have another question about this. When you are using a licensed kitchen, do I have to be licensed as well or just the kitchen?

Thanks for any help with this!

In most states, another inspection for 'your' business is required to license you at that location.

I'm in WA state and I've been doing some research. Here's what I have found out. To obtain a Business license you have to show that you will be working out of a Health Dept. approved kitchen. You also need liability insurance which would run me about $500 a year and covers any damage that may occur in the rented kitchen, choking customers ect, and it would also cover the loss of my cake if damaged in a car accident. I don't need commercial vehicle insurance unless I will have emplyees operating the vehicle.
