I was wondering if anybody knows if pruchasing prebaked cakes and pails of icing and fondant to be assembled and decorated in my home would still be looked at as a "home bakery" which is not acceptable in Wisconsin? Building and decorating cakes is what I like anyhow. It took 20 hours of straight baking to end up with all of the cakes I needed for my daughters wedding cake. It would also be nice not to have to rent or lease kitchen space. icon_biggrin.gif

You are still working with food and selling it to the public...need to be licensed

Have you tried talking to a local church to rent space from them? It could be a cheaper option.

I wish there were a easier way here in Wisconsin.
I'm in the area and I've had a hard time finding anywhere affordable to bake/decorate.

Thanks everyone. I'm not trying to get around the liscensing though. I only hoped that because I'm ordering out for everything and not actually mixing and baking product that I may somehow be able to prepare the cakes at home... legally. icon_biggrin.gif
