i make cake for friends and family and word is getting round so a few friend of a friends have asked me to make them a cake. i'm not running a business, but after reading some of the mail here i am a little concerned. i live in the uk and am not sure of the rules any help would be greatly appreciated. do i need some kind of product insurance in case of a lost fingernail type thing. also what about my 'earnings'. i may only make one cake every few months do i have to declare this. i'm very confused but really don't want to give up my new hobby that i love.
First let me say congrats on your new found love of decorating. I love decorating to it really relaxes me and makes feel so proud to give someone a creation of art. Now for your question the first thing I would do would be to contact your local health department or affiliate they can give you the best information there. Please keep us informed of your progress and good luck.
