Busted? Does this sound legit???? - Page 3

post #31 of 149
Heck, when they had the public hearing for the bill we are trying to pass in TX to get home bakeries to be legal... One of the committee members asked the head of the Health Department if really it's just "don't ask, don't tell" policy right now and her reply was something like, "Well, yeah."

My point is most health departments don't have the time to be scouting out illegal cake ladies. I'm not saying this should encourage us all to be illegal I'm just saying that if you get an email it's more than likely your "competition".

Maybe, but we are talking about this situation and this person who is harassing her. She said she has her name, address and ss#. Thats harassment. If she had a leg to stand on she would have done it. If someone contacted me for any reason saying these types of things I would be calling the police. She certainly has a right to report her, but not intimidate and harass. That is my point.

I have to agree with you on this one. The more I'm around people the more I realize common sense isn't all that common!

Yeah if HD came they would not see business activity going on in my house.....I've been baking the last 2 weeks for practice and gave all that stuff to my friend after I photographed it and thats the most baking that I do at one time-one cake and 2 dozen cupcakes. I did the craigslist thing bc I wanted to see if I could get a few orders to get my name known around town. I freaks me out that she claims that she has my SS# and bday but that just sounded strange to me for the HD. I live in ga and am not sure if is legal to home bake but I will be finding out by calling the HD...as I said this isnt worth all that trouble. I am just a stay at home mom trying to gain experience bc I love baking/cake decorating and would love to do this whenever I go back to work. It just sucked to get that email first thing (and I mean first thing 7:30 am) on Easter Sunday.....I've been in a funk all day!

Follow your passion! Four or so years ago one of the bakers here in AZ was contacting people like this. And this is a high profile baker here. It seems to me that if this so called civic minded person was so concerned they would have just contacted the HD and let it go at that. Sour grapes is all this is. And, no tellin what kind of crazies your gonna come across on Craigs list.

Butterfly Sweets, just realized who you are. I found your website before I found CC and fell in love with your style. Great work!

Hmm... 4 or so years ago was when we got "busted" (we were working in a permitted commercial space but without our own permit) I wonder if the person that you are talking about "turned us in."

To the OP: Unfortunately it doesn't matter who they are... if somebody has enough info about you and you are giving the appearance of breaking some law, they can cause you trouble. Call the HD and find out your options asap, that way if somebody does come to your door you can say "I just talked to Chuck at your office last week about getting licensed and I put out some feelers to see what demand was like. I haven't fulfilled a single order or broken any state or federal laws but while you are here and I have your undivided attention, I'd love to get some clarification on a few licensing questions". icon_biggrin.gif

Best of luck!
