    Also, since I cannot rent an outside kitchen, can I buy pre made icing, filling, and cakes, as long as they don’t need refrigeration?

    You can buy premade items and use them, as long as those items would be allowed if you made them. For instance, if Colorado doesn’t allow frostings that contain dairy, then you couldn’t use a commercially-produced frosting that contains dairy, even if it doesn’t require refrigeration. At least that is my understanding… perhaps the health dept would allow more commercially-produced items if asked.

    You will have to contact the health dept about inedible decorations, but I think that most decorations that are obviously inedible would be fine. I’m not so sure about metallic powders though. You will want to make sure that decorations are properly sanitized before putting them on or in a cake.

    I am new to the CFO. All of my baked items are vegan. Can I use buttercream? It has no eggs or dairy in it?
