Would anyone who has been through the process in this county be willing to share their experience with me? You can PM if you want.

Sorry, I'm not in your county, but usually the process is similar in States that do allow home baking.

They often require separate storage, may require a separate refrigerator (may not need to be a full size)

They want to see a dishwashing set up-drainer, detergent sanitizer(bleach)

They also may require you attend food handler classes

Usually, no pets are allowed in the home

No carpets in the kitchen (surfaces must be easily cleanable)

You pay your fee for the inspection, and your are good to go. You may be prohibited from using perishable fillings/frostings and you may not be allowed other perishables like cheesecakes or cream pies.

I live in Durham County and they are pretty easy, I think. Call the Ag Department in Raleigh and ask to speak to the Durham County inspector. He/She will be able to give you specifics on what you can and can't have. Also check out this website:

PM me if you have any questions. You could also check with loriesmom, she has a home-based business in Wake County.
