I’ve been working on a couple of blogs, so that I can share my various creative projects, and discuss things of interest. The new default pic is for one of the blogs. While I am not trying to run a business at this times, the blog will include content, that is some what related, or of interest to others who visit this site. TIA, for your interest,…[Read more]
Unfortunately, I had to close our local Chapter recently, mostly due to a lack of resources. It is unlikely, that I will reopen the chapter myself, but would be happy to help as much as I’m able, should someone choose to open up the chapter in the future.
If I only TEACH cake decorating out of my house, and I am not selling the actual cakes, cupcakes, etc., for others to consume, as they are used for instruction… is that still under the cottage food laws, since it is not exactly a CFO?

I’d like to know, if my cottage food business needs to specifically be in a home (single family dwelling), that I own, or if I can work out of a rental (house or apt.), as long as I have permission from the property owner? Thanks! :)
