ok so I visited the donut shop up the street. they have lots of unused space! only 5trays of donuts and 2/3 empty display case. I saw an oven as well. the area leases for about $10-17per sq ft. I'm wondering what a fair sublet monthly rate would be. any thoughts?
yes it would be to do cakes. this is really good advice. the shops around here bake pigs in a blanket so I'm assuming they have an oven. what about paying flat rent? I would work after their hours and provide all supplies and ingredients. would this be less complicated?
has anyone ever rented from donut shop or partnered with them? I would love your thoughts on how this has worked. monthly rental fee? commission split? thanks in advance!
My husband wants us to be protected by an LLC but I was told that since it is just me and relatively small I should be a Sole Proprietorship. Cottage food law states I can sell up to 55k from home. So what do you think I should register as? And how do I become an LLC?
These were all very helpful. I asked my coworker who also sells from home. She informed that were we not instructed to take photos of all of the cakes by the owner for the owner but for our own personal portfolios. my coworker posts all her photos to her facebook and also to our bakery facebook. I agree that I should ask what the owner would feel is best as I would want the same.  Thank you all for your help
my employer is aware I do sell from home. I covered this in the interview. but I'm not sure if the pictures of my work are usable. of course they would be ones that my employer is not using online as well.

I am wondering what to pay hourly for a wedding cake decorator 6 years exp. who is also a great sales person. Looking for hourly pay and commission %. Any thoughts?

I appreciate the feedback. They are all very true. This cake happens to be for a friends graduation at a discount and isn't a paid final order yet. Which is the only reason I considered it to not be too late to find a plan B. Rest assured if it were for a bride I would simply cancel travel plans.   Delicious Desserts-- I am sorry about your mothers passing. Your dedication to your customers is to be commended!
