I have just started this year. I am only in the practice stage. I have potiental customers already. We are going to build our home and I will put in a cake kitchen. icon_biggrin.gif It isn't going as fast as I want but nothing ever does. I should be a pro by then. icon_lol.gif

I am legal as far as my state and my county are considered. I work under the "cottage food" laws which mean as long as I properly label all of my foods and don't use anything that needs refrigerated (ganache, some fillings, cheesecakes etc) then I can sell w/o an inspection or a license. I live in a village that is zoned. I am probably violoating some kind of zoning law but i'm not saying anything to them at this point because even if I were to try and get some kind of variance or rezoned, i'm 99% sure they would shoot me down just because the owner of our local bakery is a member of a family that all but started our local business district and we live in small enough town that they would find a reason to deny me just based on that. We have one township in our area that is unzoned and as soon as we are in a position to buy a house that is where we will be looking. icon_wink.gif

Me too, it's the greatest thing to be so blessed to have the best of both worlds...it is a little challenging at times to run a business and take care of my kids, and somehow give them the attention they deserve...but we manage!

hahahaha I'm such a goober. icon_redface.gif When I first saw the discussion title, "Are You Legal?" I thought it was talking about being a legal citizen. I was thinking, "why would someone be asking that question?"

Just thought I'd share that. When I do something like that my hubby says there's gotta be blonde roots under my brown.

I think I'm too tired. I'll go to bed now.
