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.
You are still working with food and selling it to the public...need to be licensed
What the pp said is correct.
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.
