4ShannonH- what a great update to come back here to find! I googled the "cookie Law" to see what else i could find and came across the facebook post by ArtfullyDelicious with this same update and a link to the petition. I shared it on my facebook page, as well as my [url]facebook.com/cookieartist[/url] page. The fan page already got 2 more signatures =] I will keep re=posting it! icon_biggrin.gif

I know this is a few months later but I signed the petition and posted something on my Facebook page asking friends and family to sign it. thumbs_up.gif

Are there any new updates????

Better late than never I guess! I found the link online and signed the petition. However, I did find a link that is under construction so is the Wisconsin Cottage Law already passed, and if so, does anyone have any idea how to access the link?

I have had several requests from people for wedding cakes only to find out that the place where they have their wedding receptions require a "licensed" baker. Does the Cottage Law allow a home baker to be licensed or is this another license altogether? I work full time during the week and the last thing I want to do in evenings and weekends is haul all my cake baking stuff to a commercial or business kitchen to bake my cakes when I can do it just as easily in the comfort of my own hom.

No it isn't passed yet. Additionally I wrote an email to Rep. Janis Ringhand who I guess is the person that was approached about this law and told her my story. I got a response back from Maggie Gau from the office of Rep. Janis Ringhand ... here is what she said:

"Mandy,
Thank you for contacting our office.

I appreciate you sharing your personal experience with us. That is exactly why we are working on cottage food legislation that would allow small businesses like yours to grow in Wisconsin. Since the Legislature will not be back in session until January 2013 we are currently working on putting the finishing touches on our legislation. If youd like, I can forward you a copy as soon as its completed.

Thanks again for your email and we will be in touch!
Maggie"

If you feel the need to contact her or Rep. Janis Ringhand and tell them your story, here are their email address.

Maggie.Gau@legis.wisconsin.gov
Rep.Ringhand@legis.wisconsin.gov

Also if you have friends or family member to pass on the link to and get them to sign it as well that would be awesome!!! The more signatures the better, obviously thumbs_up.gif

Hi Everyone! 

 

I'm new to Cake Central and just followed the link to the iPetition for the Wisconsin Home Bakers Cottage Food Law.  I changed careers later in life and graduated last year from the Baking & Pastry Arts program at MATC-Madison.  I've been baking since I was 12 yrs. old and it's been a lifelong passion (and dream) of mine to open a small bakery and sell at Farmer's Markets.  I see there are 653 signatures and there are a 1,000 needed.  I posted on my FB page and will get the word out wherever I can.  Is Rep. Janis Ringhand still the individual to contact about this law?  If so, I see that her e-mail is provided in a previous post.  I would love to get a group together to meet with her in person!  Anyone else interested?

 

Pam
