I seem to remember reading somehwere on this thread that KVUE or another local Austin station would be airing a story about the Food Cottage Law? Did this happen? I have been watching the news and have not seen anything.
Since you will be teaching the staff, I'd get more information about their skill level. Then desing my class to meet their needs. You may have to teach different classes based on the varying skill level of the staff. Are you limited to just one class that is 1-2 hours long? Can you teach more? For the classes that will be offered to the public, you might want to consider the Wilton class method.
With all the recent talk in Texas about how home bakers are operating an illegal business (pending the passage of a Food Cottage Law), I am really freaking out that the Health Department will be out in full force looking for people like me! I accepted a cookie order about 3 weeks ago for a wedding. It's 200 cookies for an April 18th wedding. Well, I emailed the mother of the bride today to let her know that I could not complete the order. Maybe I am just being toooo...
Thanks to everyone that showed up today! I wish I could have attended but I was traveling and I didn't get to send in my letter!! I am going to be optimistic and say, WHEN this bill passes, how soon after the effective date of 9-1-09 can we realistically expect the Health Department to have their policies and proceedures in place? Since there is not current Food Cottage law currently on the books, the health department is not going to having any policies. They will have to...
Is there a companion bill in the Senate? This might help moves things along. It has been my experience (our agency works with the legislature each session) that cities/counties cannot 'weaken' or over ride State law but they can definitely add more restrictions at the local level. For example, the State can require that all the cakes be either chocolate or vanilla. A city can then require that all cakes only be vanilla. You are still complying with the State law by making...
i was just wondering if anyone has read/heard about anyone opposing the bill.....like people that currently have a legal business? Will they also show up by the hundreds to oppose this bill?
Where can we find a copy of the draft bill? Can we still meet with Rep Gattis to discuss the language found in the bill?
I charge $9.00 a dozen for cake balls, which are similar to truffles
Well, I don't know my friend's co-worker so I doubt she will ask me to donate the cake. I was just thinking. How does this woman plan on transporting such a HUGE cake. If a 24" , 2 layer round cake serves around 165 (per a website I found) then we are talking a big, big, big round cake for 400! Like the size of a truck tire.HAHAHAI had another friend ask me what I would charge for cupcakes. The going rate around here is $2.00 per cupcake (no decoration, just frosting). I...
My friend emails me that her co-worker is looking for someone "who makes cakes on the side" (red flag) to make a Quinenera cake for 400 people. This co-worker and my friend think that people who make cakes on the side will be soooo much cheaper than a bakery. Anyway, the co-worker wants a HUGE bottom round tier with one smaller round tier on top........to feed 400 people! What?!?! That would be a 5 foot round tier! HAHAHASo, I had to explain cake sizes and servings and...
