Well, you ARE posting in the "Cake Decorating Business" forum, so expect there to be business owners responding.
I can't help but detect the sarcasm and disgust in your post.......all I can say in response to that is, I guess the truth hurts. States have laws for a reason, if you choose to break those laws, than so be it, but I wouldn't brag about it.
I love when people ask a question than get pissed when they don't get the answer they want.
I think what people want to here is "No reason to get licensed and insured, just open a business, sell your product, and hope nobody turns you in. You'll be fine, no one will turn you in." " Only fools spend their time and money on getting legal, no need to really".
Sorry, I can't mislead people with lies. When asked, I answer truthfully, even if it may not be the answer you're looking for.
We've worked hard to do things lawfully, studied the rules and requirements of our state's health depts., and been through the scrutiny of the inspectors when they come to make sure our kitchens are on the up and up. I won't let somebody who's not licensed tell me it was unnecessary to go through all of that. If you're not licensed and have no intention of doing so, I'd stay quiet and wouldn't brag about "not getting turned in yet".
