Talk with others about the cottage food industry in Connecticut
You cannot make fillings that require refrigeration, and fillings with butter are not automatically allowed. But you can make fillings that contain butter IF you get the recipe approved, or if you use a pre-approved recipe.

Hi. I just got licensed to start my custom cake business here in CT. The only thing I can’t seem to find is tax help. Do i need to file them? is there a certain amount I need to make to file them? How do/should I file them. Everywhere I look just keeps to be dead ends. Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with this part of it?
The rules for the new cottage food law are still being approved, so you can’t use them yet. It appears that they will become effective in the next few months, but it’s hard to know for sure. If you want to get started immediately, you should look into renting a commercial kitchen. http://forrager.com/faq/#commercial
