Hi...i just joined cake central and had some questions about having a home bakery in Texas. I do know it's illegal BUT they said if you have a part of your house that is partitioned from your living quarters than it could be legal. Does anyone know what the regulations are for that to happen?

And before you build, you first need to check with your HOA (if you have one), deed restrictions, and city/county zoning, because it's possible that you may not be allowed to build a commercial kitchen on your property. I am personally not allowed to build one in my neighborhood.

Contact your local Health Department or Dept of Ag and ask them what all is needed. They are your best resource since you will have to deal with them for the inspections and so on.
