I hope this helps. Follow this link to read more about the Cottage Food Law in Florida.  It is okay to bake and sell your cakes from your home. You do not need a license.  Furthermore, an inspector is not going to come after you.  Just make sure your kitchen is clean for your customers. 

During the 2011 Legislative Session, the Florida Legislature enacted House Bill 7209 allowing individuals to manufacture, sell and store certain types of “cottage food” products in an unlicensed home kitchen. The Cottage Food law became effective on July 1, 2011. To better assist prospective cottage food operators, the Division of Food Safety (Division) created a draft guidance document which contains more detailed information regarding cottage food requirements. The Division plans to update this document as further information becomes available, so please check back often!
