Hi, my wife and I do custom cakes from home for family and friends and it seems to be taking off a little bit here. Does anyone know what you have to do to make and sell cakes from your home in Maryland? Or even who i should talk to? Thanks.

Correct... no home baking in Maryland. And the requirements for a shop are the same as any restaurant... but all make sense and are good food business practices.

You have to go to the MD Health Dept. It can be done, but it is not easy or cheep. You have to have a separate kitchen basically. I know someone that did it, but she had to build an addition onto her house with a full working kitchen facility. Price tag $150,000.00. Also if you get info from the Health Dept. you put yourself on their radar.

Or you can rent an existing licensed commercial kitchen:
