I starting baking and designing custom cakes for family members for fun. And to my surprise, I'm really great at it and have been getting a lot of requests for cakes. It started at first from family, then friends, now I have request from friends of friends. I'm getting several requests a month now. My newest request is a large cake for a major event (I'm so excited).
But I'm concerned with getting in trouble since I'm not a legit business. I live in Westchester County, N.Y. and am trying to get some information about what exactly I need to become a legit cake business. I know the whole thing about incorporating, but don't know anything about permits or what is required from the board of health. I have tried calling and all I seem to get are voicemails and automated systems. In reality I have no idea where to even begin or what to do.
PLEASE HELP!!! I have no idea where to begin!!!!
