AI don't think there's anything unusual about hiring someone to work at your home, people do it all the time. Having an employee involves extra work (managing payroll taxes, workers comp, supervising, training) but if you find someone who is a good fit it can work out. Just be up front with the candidates about the uneven work schedule.

I think it depends on how big your kitchen is. If it was like my first kitchen then there is no way I could get help! I couldn't even stand in front of the oven door with it open, it was so small =)

 

And I am sure there are other cake artists that cannot get licensed, due to living with pets, or small kids or parents or whatever, that would love the opportunity to get some caking done, and some money for it. You just need to be completely honest with the person when you put it across to them, as they will not be able to rely on the income, and if they have bills to pay, then it won't work out.

AI have an on-call employee that works for me when I book more orders than I can pull off alone. She likes the money, but doesn't "need" it, so it works out great. I pay her better than min. because she's a capable and reliable adult. It's working out great! I have a commercial space in a walk out portion of my house. She does dishes, cleaning, frosting, ganache, etc.
