Hi everyone! I am new here. I need some feedback/ advice. I have been making cupcakes for years and my friend suggested I start selling cupcakes for supplemental income while my husband is out of work. Do I need to create my own recipe in order to sell the product? It seems if I make an already existing recipe, that may not be legal to sell? Thanks!

You must create your own recipe if you are going to publish a book. But that's not what you want to do.

But there are legal regulations about selling we don't know where you live, we can only warn you to contact your state/provincial board of health website for information.
