Right now it isn't legal to sell cakes out of your home in TX. Here is a thread where we are trying to get this law changed.

But if you own a home and have a detached garage you can turn it into a commercial kitchen and that is legal in TX.

But yes, pray that the bill passes.

I live in Texas and have a building off my house I would like to turn into my "cake shop". What steps would I need to go through to make this legal?

You need to contact your city/counting zoning board and make sure this is possible for you to do, then your county's Health Department so they can guide you through making sure your building meets all the necessary requirements.

You need to contact your local health department and they should be able to assist you with what requirements there are. I know a couple things will be a 3 bay sink and a grease trap.

Also, if you live in a Home Owner's Association community you will have to get their approval for you to have a business.

Lastly, you might think about waiting until the end of May to see if this bill passes. It could save you a lot of money.

Let me know if you need to know anything else.
