The thing is, how do you advertise something like that? "Please order from Billie's Roadside Stand." That doesn't sound very good.
The guy at the statehouse told me that the law was enacted for farmers selling their goods at a farmer's market. But that if I sell it through some sort of "stand" outside in the yard, then that would probably be okay. My local guy (who I talked to first) made it sound like there was no way I could do it. Then I get on here and I read posts from people who actually own a business that are mad about people selling cakes illegally. I completely see their point--they've put all this time and effort into it. How do I do it. The thing with me is, I work 24 hours per week managing a non profit store, I LOVE my job and have no intention of giving it up. I have two children and a husband to take care of. I don't undercut anyone just to get the business. If Krogers or another bakery gets $50 for a whole sheet cake, that's what mine start out at. (VERY VERY small town!) I just enjoy doing cakes on the side, I have 4 this month but next month I may not have any. I just kind of feel stuck!
