Right now I am just practicing and don't plan on selling any of my cakes. However, in the event that one day I would like to turn this in to a business, I know I will have to follow state laws and establish a business and follow the rules that come with that.
One question though: How do I find out what my state requires? Is there a special google phrase to use or a website that has a listing? I have been trying to search for two days now and am coming up with nothing.
I'd also like to know this! But I also need to know for other countries. The darn military's gonna move me as soon as I get comfortable lol.
Check your state's online website, particularly the department of public health. Some phrases to check for "home baker" "baked goods".
"Cottage laws" is another good phrase to look up...I know in TN that is what we have.
Thanks so much! It seems to be much easier than I realized. According to the website, I can't have any pets and no carpet in the kitchen! I am going to request more information! Thanks for the key words, I would have never found it without your help!
Try typing, "home business liscenses".
