Make a list of the jobs you've had prior to being a SAHM. Make another list of the decorating techniques you're familiar with.

Make sure you have someone proofread for errors. Good luck!!!
 It can be confusing! The health department (a county agency) will not allow any home food business. You need the state's Dept of Agriculture and Markets for the Home Processing permit.

I've learned that charging more increases the appeal.   From there you can decide if your friend gets a discount. I call it a courtesy discount so friends know they...
 People will continue taking advantage because you allow them to. Learn to say NO in the nicest way possible. @cakesbycathy has a great tag line: Tact is telling someone where to go so nicely they can't wait to take the trip!
This you? And this?
 I just read your cake post in another thread Sorry, but custom cakes are not allowed under the Home Processor Permit in New York. If you want to legally sell these cakes, you would need to work from a commercial kitchen with the Article 20-C license. HTH
