texas cottage food law?? and tax questions.. im so confused - Page 2

post #16 of 18
Oh I forgot to add that we have many farmers markets and garage sales around that sell baked items. We are limited to baked goods that need no refrigeration. As long as we have a sign that reads .. not prepared in a licensed kitchen we can sell it. So I don't understand what the difference is ? Thanks for any insight on what you think.

I don't have doors into my kitchen. And it can be accessed from 2 areas. So that means now one can walk through to get a drink or pass through to go outside.. I didn't think they could come and inspect. It states the hrs on the web which they can come by . They require a license too. Not that I oppose that but after reading all their requirements I left wondering what is the difference between this and going into business ? Not exactly what I'm wanting to do. They also want labels and suggest they look at them first. So you make a wedding cake and label everything in it? A birthday cake which is totally different flavor and then take that label in for them to inspect?? sounds a bit crazy to me.


The type 11 domestic bakery license in OR doesn't sound very onerous to me. If you really want to have a home bakery, the cost of installing doors in the kitchen pales in comparison with what people have to do in non-CFL states. Inspections should not be a big deal as long as you follow the rules (which fit on one page). For labels, you can work out the ingredients of all your cake flavors, frosting flavors, fillings, etc. separately and attach those labels to the cake box or invoice as needed. Creating the labels shouldn't take you more than a few days.

Thanks Jason,
Things seem bigger at 2 in the morning. icon_eek.gif

Do you know what the difference is between labeling baked goods as( Not made in a licensed Kitchen) as in bake sales and farmers markets. Verus having a domestic kitchen which produces like 1 cake a month.
sorry for all questions but I do appreciate your responding to them. icon_smile.gif
