Agreed, that's why this kind of thing is better left to the health department.

I completely agree with you @Nickithebaker that people just over think things these days. I really don't think it's that serious if a little child chooses to sell cupcakes or lemonade or whatever it may be. It's a child for goodness sake and I don't see how it is your concern. The only liability lies with the child's parents. If anyone does get sick then they can take that up with the child's parents. It's not your concern. Why should any laws pertain to a child simply attempting to be business minded and partake in a childhood past time of many American children years before them who had lemonade stands?

I can't believe anyone would advocate turning in a child for baking cupcakes (or selling lemonade). Wow.

I used to bake, decorate and package cookies for sale and my children would take them around the neighborhood and get to keep all the proceeds. Granted, I was licensed to bake and sell - but I'm sure there was some rule they were breaking by going door to door (soliciting? reselling? I don't know...) Glad to know none of our neighbors thought that way.

Are you saying that children should be exempt from following the law?

Being "turned in" (which would involve simply being asked to close down until the necessary permits (if any) have been acquired) could be a teachable moment...if you want to run a legitimate business, you have to follow the rules.

I don't even like eating things my own kid has made, never mind someone else's.

I understand your position that you're not selling at work because you want to do things right and they're just ignoring all of that, but tbh you don't want to be selling your own cakes and cupcakes at work anyway, it's a recipe for disaster (no pun intended!).

If you work in a professional setting eventually the management are going to put a stop to her little side business, or everyone is going to start bringing in 'stuff their kid made'. Just let it come to an end by itself, because it will. Meanwhile your reputation remains intact amongst both your colleagues and your bosses.

Exactly! @BrandisBaked. This thread is actually ridiculous. Somewhat comical even. Let the child sell his/her cupcakes in peace. No one is being forced to purchase the cupcakes or eat the cupcakes. It's a great financial teaching source for a child and I'm sure the child has fun and is learning at the same time. I too would laugh in anyone's face who comes to my child's lemonade stand asking to see a permit.

Agree with brandisbaked and cakeloverbaker. With so much going on in the world today your concern is a child selling lemonade/cupcakes?!?

OK apparently u didn't read the whole thread. I don't care about the child. It is the fact the woman is selling them at work in hot weather and what right does she have to do that. Also I stated several times that I wouldn't start anything by calling the health department on her BC I don't want the drama. I did tell the lady she was doing that illegally but she didn't care. So I Don't care!!!! I just asked a question BC I wanted to know if I was giving out the correct information by saying it was illegally. The lemonade stand was about my daughter BC I am moving to ky and wanted to know there rules about it. If u are going to post a response at least read it through.

Ty for the advice. Its ridiculous that all my co workers sell crap at work. Its a freaking car parts factory not a sales store. Eventually management will stop it.

FYI I did read the whole post. You just stated that you didnt care whether the woman was concerned if she was doing this illegally or not, why then include that in your post? If you didn't care then you dont need to know whether you are right or wrong in your advice to her, if your question was about the rules and regulations of the lemonaide stand then that should have been your primary focus.

OP said "I just like to know I'm correct in my thinking and that I wasn't telling her false information." Personally I think that attitude is more productive than "you don't need to know whether your advice was right or wrong".

Your right I should of included more in my post like the fact the woman is nasty that I was being nice to her by telling her she was in the wrong BC she has a lot of plk that hate her at work. I personally don't like giving out wrong advice so I was checking with u guys on here BC a lot of women at my work would tell on her. I was trying to help her. This post just got a little out of hand. I'm by the rules type person so I was asking also about a lemonade stand. I would never go up to some stranger and tell them they have to have a permit or anything like that. My neighbors right now would not even hesitate to call the cops on someone over a lemonade or a yard sale so I was asking about that.

Well then I guess we are going to have to agree to disagree.
