Hello - I am in Nampa and moved here 2 years ago. I made cakes in Pocatello many years ago and am just getting back into it but kind of more homebased and not advertising because I have wondered the same thing. Let me know what u find out.

as far as cake supplies - good luck - I do alot of mail ordering because - Boise has Nothing!

I'm in Boise, and Boise has nothing, except what you can get a Michael's or the new, big Joanne's. I get most of my stuff online. I'm pretty sure you need a commercial kitchen, it can be in your residence if it's separate. I work part time for a cater who has a commerical kitchen in her home that is separate from her residential kitchen.
By the way -Welcome to Idaho!

I live in Boise. I do cakes as a hobby for family and friends. To have a bussiness you must have a liscensed kitchen which is a seperate kitchen. Another place you can get cake supplies is in Nampa. It is called Hobby
center. They sell alot Wilton but they also sell cake boards,masonite boards. They have some flavors of cake fillings. Pretty good variety.
