Did you have to do anything special to pass inspection? I am going to be scheduling one soon, and am wondering what I need to do to get ready (other than lots of cleaning)!!

thanks!

the health inspector for my county seems to be really lenient (sp?) the state requires seperate storage and refrigerator but he said a shelf in my fridge designated for my cake stuff was fine and I had to get all of my cake supplies separated out from the household stuff and it is in a different cabinet in my kitchen. I called on wednesday for information to try and be prepared by this summer and he said he'd be happy to come out the next day, so I spent all morning cleaning like crazy! it was a $152 annual fee and I'm all set! now I've got to look into insurance and getting a website figuring out my pricing and flavors and all kinds of stuff! I wasn't prepared for it to go this fast, but it is very exciting!

I don't think keeping the cake in the same refrigerator is the best idea when cakes can soak up the odors... like onions and pickles and meat and whatnot.. I ended up reading about putting baking soda in the fridge and putting the cake on a specific shelf that way the other foods in the fridge don't get anywhere near it even if everything is separated and sealed. That was a long time ago and I learned my lesson a long time ago... icon_confused.gif

I'm not putting my cakes in the fridge. I'm putting the sour cream and eggs and cream and all the rest of my ingredients in the fridge.
