I know the other topic has been locked, so this is NOT meant to start that debate up again. Just thought some people would like to know that it will work out for her: The Hilton in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ has offered her kitchen space to meet her orders (which, as of yesterday, were over 500).

Here's one article about the happy ending to this story:

geez, I wish I could get that kind of outpouring when I try to raise funds to help my son get medical treatments. We barely get a handful of people to buy raffle tickets or whatever.

Thank God for kind hearts, and the fact that the HD had no intentions of going in with the SWAT team to shoot first and ask questions later. Karma is a wonderful thing, isn't it? Now she has a legal kitchen to work out of to save her house and possibly a whole new career!

A neighbor was all over me with this story yesterday. I felt like telling her it was old news.

She went into the "and the health department nazi's came in and told her to stop production in her own home!"

I asked her if she would put her child in an unlicensed home daycare that was not inspected by the state. "NO!" When I asked why and she stated "because they aren't trained, they could be anyone off the street and what if there was an emergency she wasn't trained for."

Then I asked her the benefits of a home daycare being licensed "well you just went through it and I have you watching my child because you are trained, there are background checks on the adults in your home so I know my child is safe from sex offenders at your home, you know adult and child CPR, you are inspected and you have set rules to follow... oh I see the point you are making with this lady, nice one."

I'm all for her trying to save her home by any means possible but the last thing I'd hate to see happen was her doing it against state policy and someone finding a reason to sue her and her loosing her home she saved in a lawsuit against her by a sue happy ninny.

I'm glad that the hotel is giving her space to bake in, and I am glad that she was able to make her mortgage payments.

Who knows where this will take her now... and if the hotel picks up on selling her cakes it could be a nice side income for her.

Don't usually watch TV in the morning, usually listening to Glenn Beck, but happened to turn on The Today Show and saw her on there. Some company called Bake Me A Wish stepped in and is baking her cakes now or something like that. They mentioned that she couldn't make all of those cakes at home with four pans and one mixer and about the hotel stepping in and helping, but no mention of the legalities of why she couldn't do it. So now the whole world will want to bake from home to save the house they probably shouldn't have bought in the first place. Sorry, I'm crabby in the morning.

I just wonder how she got the trademark registered so fast? Maybe she's been doing it a lot longer than what was reported?
I don't want her, or anyone to lose her home, but something isn't adding up.

Yup, bake me a wish is now going to take over production and distribution (shipping) of her cakes (to her recipes and specs) at their commercial production facility and market them through their website.
