Like most, I started making cakes as a hobby and now I have been getting many requests from people that I don't even know because of word of mouth.... I am getting licenced!!!! I am turning my downstairs into a bakery, and after many weeks of dealing with the city, health Dept., Agg Dept, zoning committee, etc..... we had our Public Hearing Wednesday night and.... drum roll please..... I WAS APPROVED!!!! I have to put in a walk out basement to have a separate entrance, but that is really the only "construction" I have to do besides plumbing and some electrical. I already have 2 ovens, my sink, supplies, and best of all my Husband designs cabinets, so he will do counters and cabinets for me!! We've begun construction and I will keep everyone posted. I just wanted to thank everyone on here that has shown the importance of getting licenced and doing things the right way. I can't wait to get things going!! I live in a communtiy without any bakeries that do higher end cakes, the only bakeries that do cakes are Wal-Mart, and 1 other grocery store.... so that also helps! Thank you again to everyone on here that are examples of doing things the right way!! I'll keep you posted on the progress!
