The laws vary state by state. There are some states that alow an occasional home-made product to be sold, as long as there is no advertising. But, word of mouth is a strong animal! I have never advertised in print. Word of mouth has gotten me orders up the you-know-what in the past few months!
Check, anonymously, with the Health Dept. in your state or town. You may merely need to have a quick inspection of your kitchen.
