I'm in MI, and I know the law states that cakes I have to be made in a commercial kitchen, not in my home(dang it!!). I'm trying to find a church or someplace that will let me make the few cakes I make per month for a reasonable price. The question I have is: Does every part of it have to be done there? Can I make fondant pieces here and attach it there, or does every aspect need to be done in their kitchen?

I'm really trying to follow the laws (actually I'm really going to get in touch with my congressman soon about this) but if I'm making fondant pieces that need a lot of drying time in between certain steps, it seems silly to drive across town, do 10 minutes of work, and come back home.

Anyone know?

Yes, it all has to be done in the commercial kitchen. Everything has to go from store to kitchen to customer. No part can be from home.
