Hi all, this is my first post here but will not be my last and I have searched for some answers to my question but I am unable to find any.  This is for any people who run a cake business from their homes in Northern Ireland.

For a year now I have been doing cakes.  I started by doing one for my daughter and after that I got asked by a lady if I could do a cake for her son.  After this the whole thing kind of snowballed as I am now currently doing at least one cake a week, sometimes I have had 3 or 4 orders for a week.  I haven't advertised anywhere and all my cakes have been through word of mouth.  I haven't advertised as I do not want to get in trouble with any authorities or the Council or anything like that for running a business from my home as I never really intended on starting a business and see it more of just a hobby. However, recently I have been thinking that I would maybe like to start advertising or to set up a Facebook page. 

What I would like to know from anyone that lives in Northern Ireland that has set up a home cake business is what do I need to do in order to start advertising so that everything is in order with the local Councils or authorities.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I'm in Southern Ireland so rules won't be the same but basics are health board approval , insurance & registering for tax. Good luck
