I am trying to gauge interest from other cake central members in trying to get the home baking laws changed in Maryland. With times as tough as they are, now may be a good time to approach state legislators to change the laws to allow home baking.
As I read the current laws, home baking in residential kitchens on farms is allowed. There are rules and classes to go to, but I see no reason why you should have to own a farm to have a baking business. I mean what is the difference between a house kitchen & a farm kitchen?
So I'm thinking of writing/calling my legislators (State House & Senators) and asking for them to review the law and possibly make an addendum.
I don't know if it will work, but I think it's worth a try. I was wondering if anyone else would be interested.
Thanks for reading!
You are in luck! The public hearing is March 3!! Be sure to read to the end of this thread.
Wow! I had no idea. Thanks for the heads up. I'll try and write a quick letter tonight.
