I am new to the world of cakes and all that can be done to make them. I have found that as an artsy person myself this is a great way to make a living...everyone needs a cake at some point right?.
Anyways I am looking into all the legal sides of a cake business and was wondering if someone could tell me where to start. I have tried the link here on CC but its a no go...could anyone help me with this area?
Thanks for your time and information!
Two of the first places you will need to check will be the provincial department of agriculture. They will set the requirements for the food production part of your business. E.g. in Alberta, you have to have a seperate kitchen, not your domestic kitchen, if you want to bake from home. The other, if you are in a city, will be whoever does business licensing, because apparently some cities/towns do not allow home based businesses. Those are two seperate things -- the business part might say go ahead and start, but you don't meet the food safety requirements, or you could meet the food safety requirements, but not be permitted to run a business. I'll go look in my watched topics and see if I can find any other threads about this.
By the way, I am not a licensed baker -- just a hobbyist.
Just going by the topic headings, not rereading them, here are some you can look at:
And this might be useful:
Probably a lot of repeated information in there.
Thank you very much....I really appreciate your looking into the threads for me. I will have a look at them after I put my babygirl(10mnths old) to bed.
