I just wanted to share because I am excited!!! I just moved back to Utah and since I have been gone they changed their laws. I am now allowed to bake in my home and be licensed! It is called a cottage kitchen. I have to do a ton of stuff to make it all work out but I can do it now legally w/o having my own shop or licensed kitchen. I am so excited about this! I was just looking into renting a kitchen and was getting very discouraged due to cost! Thanks for letting me share. My friends wouldn't get why this is so important to me.

Yeah You!!! Yeah Utah!!! Being in Indiana, I would have to have two kitchens in my house... not a bad idea, but not very easy to find an inexpencive house with two kitchens!!!

Utah use to require the 2 kitchens as well. Who can afford that!!! Who knows, maybe Indiana will be the next to change!

Good for you! party.gif icon_biggrin.gif thumbs_up.gif

In my wildest imaginings, I'd love to have a "summer kitchen" for baking so the house could stay cool.....

Please keep us updated with progress reports - because your cake friends are interested.

Who did you contact about the cottage kitchen laws in your state and how did you know that they had changed?

I actually was calling to find out about a county kitchen they have available to the public for rent. I didn't know who to call so I started with the county business licensing phone number. Luckily the lady I was talking too knew about the new law.
I would call your business licensing people or your department of agriculture. Good luck, if you have any other questions let me know.

I agree with calling the Dept of Agriculture.

Or at least start there. Maybe the have a division that you could petition to make changes in laws.
