I wish that I could have read this thread everyone is talking about-I mean what are the chances it could be about me! In any case anyone have more details...anyone know if that poster lives in Ga?

I read it too, but I don't remember any arguing between the two, just the op wondering whether she should turn her in to the HD. Maybe that was after I logged off. I was trying to remember what state she was from, but I don't think it was ga. She was concerned because they did similar work. Did you advertising that you do 3d cakes? When I had logged of she said she wasn't going to turn her in, bad karma icon_smile.gif Anyways, just be careful, that would really suck to get in trouble before you even really got started.

The thread didn't disappear it was deleted by a moderator.

Basically, a new member "watchyourback" who joined yesterday posted a few posts to the OP. It would seem like she either was the illegal baker in question or she knew the baker. She knew the OP's name and business name.

Before it got out of hand, it was deleted.

I just checked her profile and she is from Birmingham, MI, so no I don't think this thread is related to that one.

Yeah, because people ALWAYS tell the truth on the internet. icon_confused.gif

This is just annoying. The name the OP used yesterday is the same name as the OP of this girl-Jessica. Sugaredup called her Jessica and today the email the OP posted was addressed to Jessia.

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!



Wow, small world. So what happened? Were you fined? They must have been digging pretty deep to find you were not licensed, since you were in a licensed commercial kitchen. They must have felt threatened by your talent or something.

You're right about that summer, she probably made up her location.


I'm getting to the point where I don't believe any of these type of threads anymore. I see "newbie" under the name, check the "joined" date and roll my eyes saying..........here we go again icon_rolleyes.gif

Fortunately, we weren't fined since we were working in an approved kitchen already. They gave us a break and just had us get the kitchen inspected in our name. I'm not sure that whoever turned us in knew we were in an approved kitchen, if they punched in our name on the Maricopa County site, it would have come back empty so they likely assumed we were working from home. I don't know what would have happened if we were working from home... and I am sure as heck glad we didn't have to find out! icon_smile.gif
