Has anyone heard anything new about the Tx Cottage Bill, the last I heard it was on the Gov desk....has he signed it, or vetoed it, or is it still sitting there. I have tried to find the thread, but must not be doing it right. Thanks in advance and sorry to be a bother.

Click on the attachment below some information for you to have.

This should answer a lot of your questions and next week I will be sending out the Final Draft of all the do's and don't of the Florida Cottage Food.

If you want to receive a copy email me at krazyaboutcake@gmail.com and I will add you to the list. This information will be provided directly to me from the Food Safety department and I will pass it on to you so you won't have to call the department.

It is definitely illegal here in Mississippi to bake in the home and sell to consumers. State requirements are: separate building with bathroom, three hole drain sink, thermometers in two places in all coolers, maintain log for proper temperatures, be prepared for frequent drop bys of Health Dept. for ratings. They are given as follows: A - Excellent B- Needs Improvement C- You're in trouble then DOORS CLOSED. I was told there is a HUGE fine if Health Dept discovers you baking in the home for the public, not to mention State Tax office problems that will also be involved. Also, there has to be one person with SERVSAFE certification in the bakery. We were successful in opening our cakery, as we only handle custom cakes, which took about three months following Health Dept guidelines for plumbing, etc. Should anyone like to know more, just ask. I'm happy to help. We started from scratch and are glad we did. Our customers are assured of a safe product.

as of July 20 it's a YES for Arizona... the governor signed a bill this week...

HB 2103: Allows baked and confectionary goods to be made in a private home for commercial purposes as long as the goods are not potentially hazardous and ingredients are properly labeled.

Maryland still doesn't have one ... I'm actually working with a Delegate and the state health department to try to get something on the books for 2012 but nothing much else to share yet!

Illinois passed a cottage food law effective 1/1/2012. It's Senate Bill 840.
I'm so excited. There are limits on where you can sell, but it's a start!

Im so excited that FL passed their law!!! I lived in OH most of my life and was disappointed when I moved to FL to be unable to maintain the small stream of pie/cakes that I had been making for people. Now I can resume!!!

I followed the link to florida cottage food law. How/where do you get ahold of your county to ask questions regarding liability, insurance and any other details?

What about this label they talk about, with ingredient information...how do you put that on a wedding cake?

Also, when they say you can't sell online, does that mean you can't have a website people can visit to see your work?

Any info is appreciated.
