Can someone link me to the regulations in Washington State? I just registered my cake business and could really use some direction on how to proceed. Thanks!

I'm in Washington - Clark County. You cannot have a home based business where you are making food from your home. Unless of course you do renovations to meet county guidelines - like a 3 compartment sink, seperate storage etc. I don't think you can legally cook from your home anywhere in Washington. The best place to start is the Health Department for where you live. It is really unfortuante especially with the lack of commerical kitchen space - at least in Clark County. Good luck to you!

Thank you for the links!
@ Dana: I'm in Snohomish County and have thought about renting a commercial kitchen. The wedding venue that I'm an independent contractor with has one, maybe I can working something out with them, but if all I need is 3 compartment sink, why not upgrade!? That seems simple enough...

try this: http://www.snohd.org/Shd_EH/Eh_FLE/FoodSafety.aspx This is the place to start for Snohomish County. Keep posting and you will lose your Newbie status pretty quick!

that "newbie" status is based off of how many post you've made in the forums, means nothing else. The more post you make the higher the rank you'll get. There is somewhere on the site that states how many post you need for what rank, but i can't remember where it's at.
