Hello everyone! I have enjoyed baking and decorating cakes for as long as I can remember. I have always just made them for friends and family at no cost. But my friends and family alway ask me why I dont turn this into a business. I would love to do that. People are telling me to do this on the side and build clientele before taking the business aspect further as far as getting a business license and my kitchen inspected. Is it ilegal to do this? Im confused, it seems a lot of people started charging for their cakes prior to doing these things. But I would think doing things that way would mean you cant advertise or make business cards up and things like that. I really want to do things right, but everyones in my ear telling me since I would likely not have many orders in the begining theres no need to got there yet.....sorry so long. Im just confused. I would love to hear how others got started. Thanks!
