A least having a store front, you can dream bigger. But then, that's just me. 
The idea is if you are making that amount of money consistently you should at least be able to afford a rented commercial kitchen and get the inspections needed to transition from a cottage food business to an inspected food business. A storefront is usually the next step after a rented kitchen, since staffing the storefront involves a big commitment and high fixed costs.

Ok unconfuse me again, I just read in a thread today that if you use a commercial kitchen that you have to have the customer pick the cake up at the commercial kitchen that you can't take the cake home and have them pick it up from your home because you are not licensed from your home.

That's how it works in most areas. When you transition to an inspected business, you would no longer be able to bake for the business from your home kitchen or handle pickups from your home, based on your health dept's rules.

I guess putting up a Facebook page only targets the people who know about it that the OP had friended and that are in her area so its kinda hard to go just off there.

Maybe the OP can advertise in the local paper.

Also, connect with huge fb bakers. If they like what they see on your page, they will refer or advertise you on your page in just a matter of seconds. I know a girl you just simply connected with other bakers. She started with 100 like now she's in the 15,000+++ she's not accepting orders anymore because she couldn't handle it the orders :)
