 Mother Nature has a fridge! Keep the cake in a box overnight, and either leave it on the balcony (if her room has one) or in her car. 
I'm impressed! Yes, use this form to show profit/loss for the year 2014. For all small businesses in the US that are sole proprietors, Schedule C and instructions. Check with your state to see if Ohio has any additional sales taxes.
